Deloitte Ignite returned for its fifth year with a free contemporary arts festival curated by internationally renowned artist Yinka Shonibare MBE.
In typically eclectic fashion, Shonibare pulled together filmmakers, musicians, photographers, academics and DJs to present his “celebration of traditional African and avant-garde arts and culture.”
Visitors to the foyer could experience a unique interactive exhibition of contemporary African musical instruments through our P5 headphones curated by Angolan composer, performer and designer Victor Gama. Bowers & Wilkins PM1 loudspeakers were also in the installation.
“The event’s most impressive and resonant mix of sound, vision and concept was Instrumentos, an exhibition/performance in the beautiful Paul Hamlyn Hall by Angola-born inventor and musician Victor Gama. Each instrument is a beautiful object; each implies a different audio-visual journey that’s both ethnic and high tech.” The Guardian review
