MTN Bushfire announces line-up

Posted by radio On February - 6 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

With a host of accolades to its name, and celebrated as Africa’s largest and most diverse world music festival, MTN Bushfire is gearing up for 2018 with the announcement of the first batch of artists from across the globe.

 

Winner of the African Best Responsible Event Award in 2017, hailed by CNN as one of the “7 African music festivals you really have to see,” and listed by BBC as a “Top African Festival, MTN Bushfire can add a new accolade to this list, recently named as one of the Top 30 international festivals named on the EVERFEST FEST 300 list.

 

The initial artists announced reflect MTN Bushfire’s identity as a uniquely African, and yet globally infused festival experience. The first artists to be announced for MTN Bushfire 2018, taking place from May 25th – 27th 2018 are:

 

Dub Inc (France)

They have toured all over the world for many years, regularly playing in front of tens of

thousands of spectators, setting the stage ablaze in the largest European and French festivals,

thrilling South American and Indian audiences alike. Their videos get hundreds of thousands of views in daily, and they are followed on social networks by more than four hundred thousand fans. Saint-Etienne based Dub Inc have never sought a particularly mainstream exposure; they went their own way, building their discography with passion, talent, and focus. Perhaps that is why they have been for almost ten years the best ambassadors of French reggae across the globe.

Alice Phoebe Lou (South Africa)

Alice Phoebe Lou’s fiercely independent approach to her music has given the singer songwriter a creative confidence that shines through in her captivating vocals and stripped back music. Having developed her bluesy, folk sound busking on the streets of Berlin, Alice has caught the ears of a community of music lovers the world over with her honest storytelling and raw, beautiful voice.

Flavia Coelho (Brazil)

Flavia has travelled many of the world’s roads. From Rio de Janeiro’s Favela ‘morros’ to the storied streets of Paris, this nomad feels at home wherever she’s made welcome. Her current refuge and home-from-home is a cozy retreat where she can transform, chrysalis-like, to emerge with a fully-formed new album, her third: Sonho Real.

Elida Almeida (Cape Verde)

Winner of the RFI Discoveries Award in 2015, Elida, a young woman born on the island of Santiago, developed her vocal techniques with simple church singing. She also fostered her musical culture, presenting a show on local radio in Maio, where she grew up after her father died, helping her mother, an itinerant trader. A determined woman and champion of the right to education, Elida left the world to write her love and protest songs.

The sold out Heart Cape Town Music Festival is set to rock the Mother City on Saturday 10 February 2018 at the iconic Newlands Cricket Stadium. The 12-hour music festival will see more than 20 of South Africa’s top talent on stage.

In light of the drought that Cape Town is facing, the entire festival will be water wise and operate outside the municipal grid.  This includes ablution facilities which will be brought in, instead of using the existing infrastructure at the stadium. Throughout the day patrons will be reminded that they need to be conscious of water usage. Heart FM is not only committed to leading by example as to being water conscious, but the festival is also running off  bio friendly generators to reduce  harm to the environment.

 

Hottest line-up

The line-up includes something for both young and the young at heart, celebrating the best South African and Cape Town talent.

While last season Idol’s winner Paxton Fielies agreed to perform at the festival, it was not in consultation with her newly appointed manager, who accepted an invitation to perform at another radio station concert which required exclusivity.

Festival director Denver Apollus explains. “We are not pleased with the outcome as we believe these new artists should be given the exposure across multiple platforms and not be exclusive. We should never let our brands dictate the segregation of our Cape Town artists. We are here to support and Heart FM will do so regardless. We support Paxton and look forward to our partnership with Robin Pieters’ show where she will be performing with him on 14th February 2018 at the GrandWest Arena.”

 

Artists taking to the stage:Jimmy Nevis, Youngsta CPT,  Marc Alex,  Prime Circle, Craig Lucas, AKA, Cassper Nyovest, Sketchy Bongo, Tresor, Dr Victor & The Rasta Rebels, Mango Groove, Die Heuwels Fantasies, Nasty C, Emo Adams, Sasha-Lee Davids, Alistair Izobell, Salome, Kurt Darren, Chad Saaiman, Jarrad Ricketts, Airborne, The Black Ties.

CT Jazz Festival Line-Up Announced

Posted by radio On February - 1 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

Eight sensational, world class acts have been added to the 19th annual Cape Town International Jazz Festival (CTIJF) line-up. CTIJF organiser espAfrika’s passion for jazz is rooted in Africa, but this year’s line-up lights up the globe with musicians embracing everything from swing-bop to neo-soul, hip hop, Afro soul and Zulu blues. The CTIJF is acclaimed as one of the top jazz festivals in the world, and the 2018 line-up highlights just what makes jazz fusion such a compelling, ever-evolving art form.

CTIJF Festival Director Billy Domingo is enthusiastic about the upcoming programme, saying: “Great thought has been given to the nuances of the greater jazz form in this year’s line-up. This is reflected in the variety of the acts that will entertain this year’s festinos. I am delighted that our steadfast festival goers, as well as those attending for the first time, have such a wealth of talent from which to create their personal musical experiences and we look forward to sharing these moments with our audience.”

CTIJF 2018 Second Artist Announcement

Incognito’s (UK) undying love for funky jazz turned their acid jazz repertoire into epic anthems. Frontman Jean-Paul ‘Bluey’ Maunick leads this cool ensemble, which has embarked on numerous fresh directions over time, producing winning material and unforgettable live shows. Expect a slick set chock-a-bloc with party spinners and smooth fusion.

 

Simphiwe Dana’s (SA) eye-catching imagery may project a fragility and beauty specific to this global chart-topper, but it’s her unique signature sound that confirms her status as a phenomenal artist. Her profound amalgam of jazzy Afro soul with traditional music is utterly distinctive – truly the hallmark of a remarkable musician.

 

The range of Miguel Atwood-Ferguson’s work is vast, having contributed to over 500 recordings and scores with notable musicians such as Ray Charles, Flying Lotus, Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, Bilal, Seu Jorge, and Thundercat, and 1000’s of live concerts. He effortlessly bridges genres and generations of cultural elements into cohesive, magical presentations. He has performed, toured and recorded with ensembles ranging from electronic to avant-garde, jazz, classical, hip hop and pop. Atwood-Ferguson bridges orchestral textures with elements of soul, jazz, hip hop and improv. Hear him in Miguel Atwood-Ferguson: Suite for Ma Dukes (USA) – his tribute to hip hop MC/producer J Dilla.

 

Radiating South African heritage sounds and universal jazz influences, Sibusiso “Mash” Mashiloane (SA), explores the repertoires of Bheki Mseleku, Andile Yenana and Moses Molelekwa along with his Zulu-styled blues and neo-soul, swing-bop and hip hop inflections and will reinforce the tones of Africa at the CTIJF.

 

There’s an intensity to Manny Walters (SA) that’s rooted in the legacy of rhythm ’n blues, and enhanced by modern-day soul rock nuances. This local singer-songwriter and semi-acoustic guitarist delivers a focused set of works that draws on the seminal sounds of Richie Havens, Nina Simone, Tracy Chapman and Curtis Mayfield. Manny’s standout gritty voice steers his electric rhythm & blues/alt soul playlist with socially conscious lyricism and a gravitas that reels in the listener.

 

The Surge (SA/Russia/Slovakia/Morocco/USA/ Kyrgyzstan) is a product of OneBeat, an incubator for social entrepreneurship where innovative musicians launch collaborations designed to make a positive impact. An array of rare instruments also makes this Surge gig definitely one to head to. Trumpeter Mandla Mlangeni lends his weight to the outfit, while Abbay Misganaw, aka Haile Supreme, is a Washington D.C.-based rapper and member of Congo Sanchez – a hip hop group that synthesizes reggae, dub and Latin funk. Mehdi Nassouli is a guembri player with a passion for preserving Moroccan music who’s devoted to studying deqqa, a traditional form of art from Taroudant. Jan Kruzliak is a Bratislava-based violinist. His group La3noCubano performed free concerts in refugee camps. Sergey Balashov is a drummer from Moscow specializing in improvisation. Aisaana Omorova has studied the instruments of Kyrgyzstan (komuz, jaw harp and choor), apprenticing with Zainidin Imanaliev. Jeremy Thal, Co-Founder & Artistic Director of Found Sound Nation, is a horn player and educator. All in all, a unified excursion into the unknown.

 

Enigmatically soulful international recording and performing artist N8N (Belgium), counts himself amongst the lucky few who gets to do what he loves most: entertain. N8N has dedicated his life to honing his craft; a process which has afforded him the opportunity to travel the world.  But, it was his love for the Mother City, which he considers his second home, that inspired him to write and release a tribute fittingly entitled Cape Town at the end of 2017. The track was born of a collaboration with Grammy award-winning producer Andre Harris and a-list song-writer Carmen Reece and features on his upcoming EP [Second 2 None}, which is due to be released in spring 2018.

 

The Liberation Project (SA) is part of a broader Liberation Project driven from South Africa, which features musicians who’ve joined forces to celebrate their liberation struggles from different corners of the world. This line-up has been specially commissioned by the CTIJF and their festival set is dedicated to Ray Phiri. This interesting pool of musicians combines Sipho Hotstix Mabuse (vox, sax, piano, flute), Tony Cedras (accordion, trumpet), Neill Solomon (vox, piano, acoustic guitar), Dan Chiorboli (perc), Tebogo Sedumedi (vox, bass), DRC kwassa kwassa star Bienvenue N’Seka (vox, guitar), Keeran Eshwarlall (Sufi vox, harmonium, santoor, harmonica) with special guest Roger Lucey on vox and acoustic guitar.

 

The 19th Cape Town International Jazz Festival will take place 23 and 24 March 2018 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.  Day passes are still available at www.computicket.com at R750 per person per day.

 

Corporate hospitality packages are available for the upcoming festival.

Cara Frew studied at the Malie Kelly Vocal Academy in South Africa and went on to do a stint at the Song Writing School of Los Angeles, where she gained first-hand experience in songwriting and studio production. Having studied and networked in LA it wasn’t long before Cara had the opportunity to work with musical greats such as Lauren Christy and Andre Lindal, the creative duo behind Kelly Clarkson’s Grammy-Award winning ‘Stronger’.  Listing Amy Winehouse and Lana Del Rey as some of her favourite artists, it was a dream come true to record her first four-track EP (‘Come Close to Me’) with Daniel Heath who was responsible for Del Rey’s ‘Blue jeans’and ‘Young and Beautiful’. All four tracks were co-written with Stefan Skarbek who worked closely with Winehouse.

 

Back home in South Africa, Cara collaborated on a song with one of Africa’s biggest exports, world-renowned DJ and music producer – Black Coffee. ’I’ll find you’ was the first release off Black Coffee’s 2015 album. The collaboration afforded Cara the opportunity to perform at Sónar, Ultra Music Festival South Africa and Miami in 2016.

2018 gets off to a bang for Afro-Soul fans as multi award-winning artist Zahara is booked as the first act to open up the Lyric Theatre’s monthly music event series; ‘Kaya FM & Bassline Live Present’.

 

After a stellar line up in 2017, the collaborative series has seen artists such as Thandiswa Mazwai, Simphiwe Dana, The Soil, Bongeziwe Mabandla, Oliver Mthukudzi and New York’s Tortured Soul and many others leave audiences hungry for more.  With the rich selection of artists being playlisted on Kaya FM, producers of the event are excited for the year ahead and Gospel-influenced Afro-Soul sensation Zahara is officially the first artist in 2018’s line up.

 

Zahara is no stranger to the airwaves.  With only 6 years behind her as an official recording artist, this hugely talented singer/songwriter has firmly placed her stamp in the hearts of music fans around the continent.  Growing up in a highly musical environment, she honed her skills from as young as 6 years old by singing at Sunday School and in various school drama productions – but it was only after her education that she took her love of music to the next level, by teaching herself the guitar and pouring her heart and soul into her self-penned, highly personal songs.

 

Her discovery and subsequent path to fame was fast and took her straight to the top, making her a multi-platinum selling artist almost overnight, yet not without relentless and continuous touring, and self-dedication.

Her brand new album Mgodi, sung in English and isiXhosa, was released in October 2017 and reached ‘gold’ status within 6 hours of its release, making her one of the fastest selling Afro-Soul artists in South Africa at the moment.

Catch Zahara while you can, before she embarks on her nationwide and US tour planned for early 2018.

 

Once again, stylish urban outfitters Brentwood Clothing, new affiliates to the Kaya FM & Bassline Live series, will be on board, standing behind the rich arts and culture scene in SA through music.

 

Make sure you book your tickets way in advance for what is guaranteed to be a sold out show.

 

When: 3 February 2018.  Show starts at 8pm sharp.

Where: The Lyric, Gold Reef City

Tickets: R180 – R400 at Computicket
