Author and composer, Benjemy was born in 1989 in Tunis.

Sofyann Ben Youssef AKA Ammar808 is the mastermind behind the critically acclaimed albums « Maghreb United » and « Global Control / Invisible Invasion », not forgetting the late project Bargou08. Before setting base camp in Denmark, he traveled a singular journey that made him the godfather of the Tunisian alternative and electronic scene. Bred as a musicologist in the corridors of Tunis’ Music Institute, he specializes in Arabic and Indian music. As an avid listener, he strives for bridges between oriental and occidental music. This thirst for yet unheard musical blends led him to settle in Vienna, then Brussels, where he met Anana, vocalist and guitarist of the Touareg Band Kel Assouf. Sofyann produced their albums and joined the live band, bringing his sub-harmonic Moog Bass to the Desert Blues cocktail. He now operates his own mothership studio in Kjellerup, Denmark, where he works as a composer, producer, sound engineer and music production teacher.
Cafi Chanta strongly condemns the ongoing and UN-documented Genocide and collective punishment against the Palestinian people in Gaza, as well as the disturbing war crimes that continue to be committed against the innocent civilians in Gaza.
The dehumanization of individuals and the perpetuation of racist discourse in Germany are deeply troubling.
The institutional silence surrounding the ongoing humanitarian crisis faced by 2.3 million Palestinians in the occupied and besieged Gaza Strip is not acceptable. It is our moral obligation to confront these issues head-on and work towards justice and solidarity with all those living under oppression.
We believe in the power of collective action to alleviate suffering and create a more just world. In an effort to support the innocent civilians and children in Gaza, all the proceeds from our event will be dedicated to the UNRWA on ground in Gaza and the UN world food program.
