Sound Camp Grand Finale
Last night’s Sound Camp closing party at Pettah Interchange was to be not only an incredible party but also a radical milestone in the history of Colombo’s music, art and club culture. Thank you for all the feedback!
Thank you to everyone who helped transform the underground car park of the historical Gaffour Building in Pettah into a sound dungeon reminiscent of the early club/ rave/ squatter era of Berlin, Detroit or Sheffield. With a faded, mystical charm of a byegone era (similar to in Calcutta or Havanna), the Gaffour Building and Colombo’s nightlife was catapulted into the future for just one night.
Today the Sound Camp participants are heading back to their respective homes in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, India and Germany. Sad to get on the creaky, cable drawn ferry for the last time, the artists leave Ruskin Island armed with an arsenal of music and with memories of an inspirational time spent sharing, creating and having a hell of a lot of fun together.
