Urban Village have become a live favourite in South Africa, with their blend of mbaqanga, maskandi, Zulu rock, Xhosa funk and folk music taking them stages all across the country.
Join the Urban Village Lounge experience this Sunday 24 May from 3pm with host Rude Boy Paul, the band will jam and talk through their journey as a band from Soweto to signing an album deal with a French record label and a European Booking Agent. Plug in your sound system and join the Village online from 3pm for a 2 hour sound experience.
“Feet steeped in tradition and head bowed toward the future, the Soweto based group Urban Village creates a unique melding of Zulu guitars, indie-folk, South African choirs and jazz and dazzled with an insane energy and charisma. Urban Village crafts songs with a wide range of colours – sometimes powerful, sometimes gentle, always airborne.”
