To celebrate the launch of El Alto, Outburst presents an electric showcase of vital new music from Latin American and Jamaican queer and trans performers.

Susy Shock is an Argentinian singer, poet and trans activist, whose legendary performances of traditional music, words and song are powerful to behold.
She performs for the first time in Belfast with her full band of musicians.

MC Dani Nega is a rapper, activist and singer whose beat heavy nu-funk and electronic tracks take on racism and machismo in Brazil. An emerging culture leader in the black LGBTQ+/cuir movement in São Paulo, her new EP with co-performer DJ Craca is supported by the Outburst Americas project.
Ghana is a young rhymer from Kingston, Jamaica, whose brilliant debut EP Gypsy Dread reveals influences of reggae, afrobeat, trap and dub music. Her first single ‘Silence The Dread’ speaks against gender-based violence and other human rights issues.
Ali Gua Gua AKA DJ Guagüis is from Veracruz in Mexico. She’s a hugely important figure in alternative/indie music in Latin America, combining latin music with electronic beats or “Post-tropical”. She’s Outburst’s new favourite DJ and will be yours too.
