Live percussionists and electronic DJs, Black Motion
join us on Friday 10th August. Over the last 3 years South Africa has become widely considered as a new mecca for house music, particularly deep and afro house; the sound itself permeates into nearly every commercial radio station and club scene throughout the country. Within South Africa itself, Pretoria (Tshwane), the home township of Black Motion, is considered the Capital of House Music.
Bongani Mohasana (DJ Murda) and Thabo Mabogwame (Smol) had been making music for the local mixtape industry for years before they united under the same moniker, but it was their collaborations that granted them international fame and domination of the African electronic scene in 2010. The duo’s 2010 hit Banane Makovo (“Clap Your Hands”) granted them international recognition leading to 4 full studio albums, in which one, “Fortune Teller” (2014), has reached gold status. Expect melodic, percussion driven electronic music and excellent showmanship as Black Motion take us through the world Afro-House.
