Counterflows marries the local to the international with artists from around the world collaborating with homegrown talent in spaces across Glasgow and London's Cafe Oto, and working within all genres of music. This year sees performances from Japanese folk singer-songwriter Kan Mikami and Glaswegian experimental rap duo Hector Bizerk, a discussion with experimental filmmaker Sami Sanpakkila and programming from avant-garde promoter Cry Parrot, who's snagged the mysterious Jandek for a set.
We have no details of upcoming performances.
