Akum Agency present Urban Village
Urban Villagereturns to Untitled Basement on Wednesday 29 May 2019 for a special concert to be filmed for live music video.
Urban Village music encourages and motivates, entertains, and awakens cultural and traditional consciousness; it encapsulates day-to-day personal and societal experiences echoed with teachings by the elderly, bringing us back, not to be regressive but to take us back to a point where our identity reflects us and our stories. Their sound can be described as a blend of folk music, Zulu rock, Xhosa funk, mbaqanga, maskandi layered with electric and funky acoustic melodies clearly rooted in South Africa.
Urban Village consists of young experiential artists from Soweto, Johannesburg: Lerato Lichaba on Guitar/Vocals, who has toured extensively with the legendary Madala Kunene as part of Forest Jam Orchestra, multi-instrumentalist Tubatsi Mpho Moloi on flute, guitar and Mbira who was an actor/dancer in the renowned musical production Umoja, Xolani “Cush” Mtshali on drums and Simangaliso “Smash” Dlamini on bass. They recently inked a deal with Nø Førmat, is a French record label representing some of the most exciting contemporary sounds from West Africa, Europe and Latin America, for their first release of a Southern African artist.
Dress code is Urban Village, come vibe with us.
