Larry Achiampong's solo and collaborative projects employ imagery, aural and visual archives, live performance and sound to explore ideas surrounding class, cross-cultural and post-digital identity.

Achiampong’s works examine his communal and personal heritage - in particular, the intersection between pop culture and the postcolonial position. Using performance to investigate ‘the self’ as a fiction, devising alter-egos to point at the divided selves. 

With sounds ranging from vintage West African Highlife, Afrobeat and old school soul, Larry will perform as his alter-ego Black Phoenix playing some of his own remixes fusing hip-hop beats with important moments and voices of Pan-African histories.
