This newsletter is being sent from French Reunion Island, a beautiful volcanic island located in the middle of Indian Ocean famous for its rum and its mysterious and ancestral percussive music : Maloya .
For the 3rd time Kaiguan has brought Chinese delegates and artists to IOMMA convention and SAKIFO Festival and this time these 2 platforms obviously will propel our favorite Beijing based electronic disco rock act Nova Heart towards further adventures.
Charismatic lead singer and Femme fatale Helen Feng electrified the crowds by two times with her irresistible crystal voice, jumped and walked on people like a punk and fell back on her feet like a cat ,we love her !
Stay tuned on Nova Heart as a lot of things are going to happen for them.
Meanwhile, check what we’re cooking for you this month!

Discover St.Lô , one of the new sensation of the French scene, soon expanding to Europe and further. Discovered and acclaimed at TransMusicales Festival last year St Lô delivers a cross over sound between blues rock , electro and hip hop.
Leaded by charismatic New Yorkan singer Hanifah Walidah, spearhead of the poetic hip hop wave in the 90’s, and backed by french collective La Magnetique, St Lo is worth checking out so don’t miss them in Shanghai!
We are happy to have a special guest for the occasion , the one and only Shanghai based lyricist and songwriter Chacha.

People who know Frederic Beigbeder know that he is a Parisian dandy, a snobbish literature critique and one of the most renowned talents of French contemporary literature. He won prestigious awards for “Windows on the world” and “Un Roman francais” but the novel that made his fame as a funny decadent post modern being is unarguably “99 francs”, a story which mocks the world of advertising in which Beigbeder worked for ten years. But only few people know that this jet setter is also a dj!!!
On June 21st, we bring you a special night, featuring Beigbeder on decks, accompanied by local frenchie electro clash outfit We Are Not Invited and Dj Pei , our local favorite queen of the night,well known for rocking nights at Dada Club.
Expect a night of decadence at 2 kolegas, an epic celebration of summer, an ode to urban paganism!
