Debra Shaw at M.Bassy

M.Bassy is a non-profit organization based in Hamburg. Our goal is to promote contemporary African and African-inspired artists and creatives – especially in the areas of design, fashion, and music. With our public salon, we aim to create a space for public encounter and exchange in order to share and celebrate African culture.

The event series “More Aphrike” invites current artists and voices from the African continent and diaspora to Hamburg and encourages an open discourse on today´s image of African culture and lifestyle, far from the usual stereotypes and clichés.

»M.Bassy is about creating a truly international venue in Hamburg to celebrate and share afro-inspired and soulful art, fashion, and music from all over the world. Bringing more aphrike* to the North.«

(The Founders of M.Bassy)

*Aphrike means »uncold« and is the name the Ancient Greeks gave Africa.
