Get free, as Thandiswa Mazwai presents Fetish.
It’s all taking place at Newtown Music Factory on Friday the 26th of April. She will be joined throughout the night on stage by her famed rockstar friends, the BLK JKS. In between there will be a sizzling line up of DJs who will make it the hottest party in Jozi.
The theme for this party is FETISH, so I am looking forward to seeing what the legendary children will be wearing as we dance the night away
said the singer also known as KING THA.
Why FETISH as the theme?
Because it denotes an obsession and it evokes another part of our psyche, a part that is, in fact, very creative
But really, it’s about my obsession with music and experimenting. I will be playing with BLK JKS in a soundclash called KING THA vs. BLKJKS
So throw away your inhibitions and expectations and be prepared for many sexy musical surprises.
For over 20 years, Thandiswa Mazwai has been one of the most influential South African Musicians of this generation.
She began her career in 1998 with Bongo Maffin, one of the pioneering bands of Kwaito. After 6 award−winning albums with Bongo Maffin, she ventured onto a solo career. Zabalaza (2004), her debut project, reached double platinum status and won numerous awards and her critically acclaimed second album ‘Ibokwe’ (2009), reached gold status in the first few weeks of its release.
Her third solo studio album, Belede (2016), is a collection of reinterpretations of legendary South African Jazz and protest anthems from the 1950s and 1960s.
Thandiswa’s selection is inspired by the music she listened to whilst growing up, and her reframing of these classics serves as commentary on South Africa’s contemporary political landscape.
