  • Danielle Almeida


Danielle Almeida is a singer and activist who has been involved in antiracist education, decolonial studies, and Afrodiasporic aesthetics since 2002. Her work as a researcher, singer, and educator has received numerous awards and recognitions.

As an educational practice against racism and colonialism, Danielle Almeida designs didactic concerts and makes the influence of black singers in Latin-American music visible. In this hour on dublab we focus on her work in general, and her concert repertoire which took place at King Georg on the September 19th, 2022 in particular. This concert was part of concluding her residency at Akademie der Künste der Welt (Academy of the Arts of the World, ADKDW) in Cologne.

America, un Rincón de Africa

The impact of the African Diaspora on the cultural identity of the Americas is crucial. To shine light on this topic we seized the opportunity and invited a variety of experts visiting Cologne - including the crew around Colombian record label "Discos Fuentes" - for a day of radio broadcasts focusing on the rich legacy of the African Diaspora throughout the American continent.

dublab promotes curiosity, experimentation, inclusivity, and connection.
