SHANGAAN ELECTRO

Nozinja, Tshetsha Boys, Tiyiselani & Nkata Mawewe

Tickets: 8EUR

180+ bpm Soweto style new dance music. Sold out! Show starts at 9.30 pm!

Shangaan Electro is the street level dance phenomenon from South Africa that went global in 2010 on the back of a series of viral youtube clips (2 million hits and counting) and an acclaimed compilation on Honest Jon’s that introduced the movers and shakers in this fast emerging micro-genre. Shangaan Electro replaces Shangaan music’s traditional instrumentation with midi-keyboard sounds, re-pitched vocal samples and jacking four to the floor beats, then amps things up to breakneck speeds of over 180BPM. This is hyper-kinetic digital dance music custom made for weekly dance offs in Soweto, and it’s getting ever faster…

This summer Shangaan Electro is hitting European festivals/clubs for the first time ever. Based on a Soweto street party, the live show will feature the stars of the Honest Jon’s compilation - producer/mastermind and vocalist Nozinja aka ‘Dog’, the clown-masked Tshetsha Boys, alongside Tiyiselani, Nkata Mawewe and the fastest Shangaan dancers around.

Sold out!
Show starts at 9.30 pm!
