South African Tour 2017 - SAX MACHINE feat. DAVU

2017-SaxMachine-AF-980x340

South African Tour 2017 of SAX MACHINE feat. DAVU

 

SAX MACHINE feat. DAVU will be touring South Africa from 9 June to 17 June 2017.

Hip Hop Jazz trio, SAX MACHINE is a return back to the future of "Great Black Music" : hard bop, afro beat, funk or hip hop collide into a new and unstoppable alloy. SAX MACHINE is an alchemical formula imagined by saxophonist & beatmaker Guillaume Sené (Like Jam, Leon Newars) and trombonist Pierre Dandin (Sergent Garcia, Malted Milk) that transforms the art of improvisation into a mesmerizing horns colored groove mixed and merged with loopers and machines.
From murals to music, from poetry to theater and film, from beats to rhymes; emcee, poet, keyboardist, video artist, and producer DAVU is a multidisciplinary artist constantly searching for new ways of expression. Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to a musical family, DAVU was first introduced to music by his grandfather, who was a guitarist with the Isley Brothers for many years. His old school hip-hop flow and his poetic rhymes prove that mind can revive hip-hop.

    Concert Charles X - From biting rap to sensual soul music

    Charles X is as old as the era he worships. 26 years old, Dales Anthony Doss, A.K.A Charles X, seems straight out of the dawn of the 90s, in the middle of hip hop's golden age (A Tribe Called Quest, Digable Planets) and of nu soul (D'Angelo, Maxwell). Except that the Californian does not settle… Read more
