TKZEE TO REUNITE FOR EXCLUSIVE PERFORMANCES AT #DStvDELICIOUS FESTIVAL

In news that is expected to thrill Bongo Maffin and TKZee fans, the two bands will reunite for exclusive performances at the 2017 DStv Delicious International Food & Music Festival, brought to you by Liberty at Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit in Midrand. TKZee will perform on Saturday 7 October and Bongo Maffin on Sunday 8 October.

The two groups will join an already impressive line-up of artists at the festival such as international heavyweights Common, Imagination featuring Leee John, Alexander O’Neal, Omar and Femi Kuti as well as local talent Hugh Masekela, Thandiswa Mazwai and Black Coffee.

In addition to Bongo Maffin and TKZee selecting their own material to perform, audiences will be invited to choose four songs to be performed by each band at the festival.

 

Made up of three school friends, Tokollo Tshabalala, Kabelo Mabalane and Zwai Bala, TKZee ignited the South African music scene in 1996, fast becoming the top-selling kwaito group in the country. Their first breakthrough hit, Palafala, sampled Joni Mitchell’s 1970 hit, Big Yellow Taxi, and sold more than 100,000 copies.

 

The three musicians didn’t shoot to fame by chance. Classically trained, Bala, was the first black member of the Drakensburg Boys Choir as well as the first black member of the Royal Music Academy in Edinburgh, Scotland. Tshabalala started off his career in 1995, recording with kwaito artist, Mdu, while Mabalane was part of a music exchange programme in the United States.

 

Today, their sound is so much more than kwaito and incorporates hip-hop, classical, house and gospel beats that fuse into what is now known as “Guz” music.

Bongo Maffin is known for its heady mix of kwaito, house, techno, rap, hip-hop, and reggae sounds, a highly successful blend that saw them win a South African Music Award for Best Kwaito Band in 1999 and “Best African Group” at the KORA All-African Award ceremonies in 2001.

Made up of Jah Seed, Thandiswa Mazwai, Stoan Seate and Speedy, the bank was formed by Zimbabwe-born musician and DJ, Appleseed (born Oscar Appleseed), in 1996. The band built up a solid fan base in South Africa before exploring the international music arena and gaining appreciation in France, England and Denmark.

Don’t miss out on these legendary local artists and exclusive performances. Book your tickets for the DStv Delicious Festival and get to enjoy two days of wall to wall musical treats and food that will tantalise even the most refined taste buds.

The full line-up is as follows:

Saturday: Common, Thandiswa Mazwai, TKZee and Black Coffee Live
