About
2014 winners of the Barclaycard Mercury Prize, Young Fathers, are on their way to South Africa. In partnership with British Council Connect ZA and Okayafrica, South African beats platform Weheartbeat and Cape Town’s Assembly Radio are hosting a massive two-city tour for the Scotland alt-rap heavyweights. Last year in August, The British Council and the South African Department of Arts and Culture launched an open call for proposals from creative artists and institutions to be part of the SA-UK Seasons project, bringing all new collaborations to the live music scenes in their respective cities. The result is a week of sight-seeing, Meet 'n Greet sessions and live performances in association with RedBull Studios, Supremebeing and LiveMagSA, alongside some of South Africa’s best in live music..

LINE-UP

Young Fathers


Young Fathers are an alternative hip-hop group based in Edinburgh, Scotland. In 2014, they won the Mercury Prize for their album Dead.

Card On Spokes


Card On Spokes blurs the lines between space-synth glitch, and future-step music, performing his live electronica sets with synths and an APC40.

Card On Spokes is steadily garnering a die hard fan base, and coupled with his unique take on Electronica with a strong local flavour, is definitely one of the rising stars in the cutting edge musical landscape.

Mashayabhuqe Kamamba


Mahayabhuqe thinks he is a man. He thinks he is flesh and warm breath. That is only because he is still under the control of Nsikelelo Ndlovu, whose Mandeni/eNkandla upbringing prevents him from being anything but a calabash of humble. If it wasn’t for Nsikelelo, Mashayabhuqe would realise that he is not flesh and warm breath. He is incense and spirit-pressure.

Okmalumkoolkat


all black black kat aka okmalumkoolkat aka futuremfana aka smart mompara aka bhut'yang'chaza aka ikati elimnyama aka The Sjambok Ambu.

A Millon Things

Dj Symatics
