** Brazil’s Voice Against Repression & Grande Dame of Samba Elza Soares gives rare live performance at Le Guess Who? 2016 ** Dutch Experimentalists The Ex Invite Cast of Ethiopian Performers After 8 decades of triumph and tragedy, Brazilian protest singer Elza Soares is lauded as queen of samba and a powerful voice against repression and injustice. On Saturday, 12 November, the legendary singer will perform at our 10th Anniversary Edition. The Ex stands tall as one of the most forward-thinking and tireless bands on the planet. At LGW, they will perform with Fendika, an exuberant and joyous dance and music ensemble from Ethiopia. The band also hosts ‘The Ex Festival’: a three-and-a-half hour improv session with an eclectic cast of collaborators. More info: www.leguesswho.com

Alessandro Cortini: musical voyager and Nine Inch Nails' synth sorcerer, curated by SUUNS. Born in Italy and based in Los Angeles, Cortini's solo ambient pieces reach the highest levels of grandeur, marked by a gloomy and claustrophobic atmosphere; or, as Consequence of Sound put it, music that "demands a state of surrender". Cortini's compositions demonstrate the full, emotive breadth of a colorful array of instruments, including the extremely rare Buchla Music Easel, of which he is one of the pre-eminent masters in North America. We feel privileged that Suuns invited this mastermind gearhead to perform at our 10th Anniversary Edition. Watch the video for 'Stambecco', from latest album 'Risveglio' (on Prurient's Hospital Productions):

Bassekou Kouyaté: Malinese virtuoso hailed as the Jimi Hendrix of the ancient ngoni instrument - curated by Wilco. After the Grammy nominated album 'I Speak Fula', 'Jama Ko' was recorded with producer Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, GY!BE) during Mali's 2012 coup d'etat; Bassekou's statement for liberalism and freedom of culture in Mali. Following collaborations with Damon Albarn, Toumani Diabaté, Paul McCartney, African music legends Ali Farka Touré and Taj Mahal (who called him a musical genius), Bassekou's fourth album, 'Ba Power', is a striking new chapter that fuses Pan-African and Western standards for an Afro-rock tour de force. Bassekou Kouyaté & Ngoni Ba will perform on the opening night of Le Guess Who? 2016. Watch 'Siran Fen':

Pita: Editions Mego-founder & harvester of the avant-garde returns after more than a decade. With the independent, hotbed Editions Mego label (formerly Mego), Peter Rehberg has released music by a myriad of Le Guess Who? 2016 acts, including Fennesz, Stephen O'Malley, Container, Klara Lewis and Phurpa. After more than a decade, Rehberg finally revived his own moniker Pita this year. New album Get In's glinting, fractured soundscapes examines the paradox of intimidation and beauty, the human and the tool, the improvised and composed. With thanks to Wilco for inviting Rehberg, we’ll get the chance to experience this dystopian sonic journey live as part of our 10th Anniversary Edition. Listen to Get In:
