Pan African Space Station

About

Founded by Chimurenga in collaboration with musician and composer Neo Muyanga in 2008, the Pan African Space Station (PASS) is a periodic, pop-up live radio studio; a performance and exhibition space; a research platform and living archive, as well as an ongoing, internet based radio station.


Live Events

Since 2008, PASS has hosted genre-busting music projects and events dedicated to exploring new territories.
The line-up has featured Kora maestro Toumani Diabate; Queen of Ndebele music, guitarist Nothembi Mkhwebane; 9-piece, Chicago-based jazz troubadours Hypnotic Brass Ensemble; Cameroonian funk-master Franck Biyong and many, many more.

PASS Pop-up

Taking advantage of both the intimacy and unpredictability of the live radio studio space and the reach and scope of the internet, PASS POP-UP seeks to forge new collaborations across time and space. A combination of live conversations, travelogues, discussion sessions and performances, together with exhibitions of new and archival material interrogate our shared histories.
