Streams from Africa: The Brother Moves On

Streams from Africa: The Brother Moves On

Wed 26 May 2021

Stream time / 9:00pm





The experimental collective mixes rock, Xhosa funk, jazz, folk, electronic, dance and spoken word for the post-apartheid age


Taking a cue from that other “Brother From Another Planet”, Sun Ra, they embrace a multi-genre, multimedia aesthetic, re-challenging hip-hop’s pillars (MCing, DJing, B-boying, and graffiti writing) into a performance art project that incorporates historical, political, and sociological perspectives.

A thoughtful examination of the several routes along which modern South African jazz has arrived and a thought-provoking pointer towards where it may be going. It is, also, a lot of fun.
