One of South Africa’s most exciting talents, award-winning singer, songwriter and instrumentalist Nakhane plays in the UK for the first time. Since his acclaimed 2013 debut album Brave Confusion, Nakhane has collaborated with South African record producer Black Coffee on the hit single We Dance Again, showing an aptitude for moving effortlessly between genres. His latest EP, Clairvoyant, is an exciting glimpse of what is to come when Nakhane’s album You Will Not Die, is released produced by Ben Christophers (Bat For Lashes, Hot Chip, Imogen Heap, Françoise Hardy), next March. Citing Malian singer and multi-instrumentalist Ali Farka Touré as an influence, Nakhane’s music also shows traces of Radiohead and David Bowie in the melancholic, languid guitars and his beautiful soaring vocal harmonies. Performing for the first time in the UK, this is not to be missed.
Nakhane is also one of the stars in the Film Africa 2017 Opening Gala film The Wound on Friday 27 October and will take part in a Q&A after the screening.
