Ça Va Ensemble | A UK-France rap camp in Manchester

Collaborations between French and UK rap artists are becoming increasingly common, new exchanges that are creating impactful art: Laylow & Slowthai, Pa Salieu & Gazo, Backroad Gee & Le Juiice, all racking up thousands and even millions of streams. Ça Va Ensemble is a collaboration between the CNM, UK audio production and talent development agency On Da Beat and Selina hostels that aims to encourage this trend and create new opportunities for French and UK artists producing rap, drill, R’n’B, Latin and Afro styles to learn about each other’s scenes, collaborate, produce new tracks and perform together.

The French participants for this first edition are performers Turtle White, LauCarré and Maïcee. For five days, from 21st to 25th March, they will be collaborating with UK beatmakers and performers at the Selina site in Manchester, and finishing the week with a panel and a live performance at Wilson’s Social in Manchester.

Panel Discussion 6.30pm
