IMS Ibiza and Ballantine’s True Music celebrate the astonishing rise of Amapiano and African electronic music with the artists and industry leaders making waves in the scene.


‘Amplifying Amapiano & African Dance Music: The Journey of a Genre from The Township to the Global Stage, presented by Ballantine’s True Music,’ will unpack the global growth of a cultural movement that transcends borders, featuring Dare Balogun (Ballantine’s True Music Strategist at M&C Saatchi Sport & Entertainment), Grace Ladoja (Metallic Inc & Homecoming; Music Executive & Founder), Sarah Jane Nicholson (Paradise Worldwide & Africa Rising Music Conference; Managing Director & Founder), Shanae Dennis (Wasserman Music; Music Agent) and Tunde Adeniyi (Dankie Sounds; Founder)


After the panel, two-time Grammy-nominated Sarz – DJ, musician, and the producer behind Beyoncé’s ‘Find Your Way Back’, Drake’s ‘One Dance’ and collaborations with Skrillex and Skepta – returned for another moment with us following our London pop-up, DJing alongside Charisse C, bringing the sounds of Amapiano to Ibiza.
