Kenyan-born music producer and DJ Makossiri makes club music that defies genre limitations. Rich in narration and soaked in a cinematic atmosphere, her music is a blend of both hardcore techno, folk-punk, trance, industrial noise, and African rhythms mixed with otherworldly sounds, elements of Afro-Futurism and Egyptian mythology.
