Animistic Beliefs (nl)
Friday, 01 Mar 2024
Animistic Beliefs are inventing a new, creole musical language. The Rotterdam-based duo forms from Techno, IDM and ‘Global Club’ to create exhilarating hybrids, applying a fresh perspective that is both deeply personal and political. ‘Animism’ is the idea found in indigenous belief systems that all objects, creatures and places possess a spiritual essence. Pre-colonial thought, traditions and music connected with Marvin’s Moluccan and Linh’s Vietnamese-Chinese heritage are key inspirations and tools through which the duo explore their experience as queer POC living in the Netherlands.
