Bonaventure is Soraya Lutangu’s nom de guerre. Under this alias, she has been developing sonic weaponry designed to confront oppressive power structures, tell the story of violence, indifference and abuse fuelled by racism, with Complexion released on NON Worldwide last year marking the prelude to her protest, fully expressed on Free Lutangu released via PTP. She uses music as an identity research tool along with practical and speculative initiatives to connect her African and European roots and investigate human relationships. A regular on Berlin Community Radio, Bonaventure has also made herself at home for several hours on London’s NTS. Her radio mixes bring disparate genres into smooth sequences she refuses to protect from abrupt collisions.
