Reunionese DJ Labelle in South Africa
30 September from 5pm, Bannister Hotel, Braamfontein, Joburg, with WeHeartBeat 
1 October at 5pm, French Day, Durban University of Technology

Labelle’s electronic maloya, Reunionese traditional music, is first of all an experiment: a kind of “imaginary accelerator”. Either sung or recited, in the tradition of Reunionese fonnkèrs, this rhythmic, electro and experimental music creates unique atmospheres. Labelle’s universe unites maloya and electronics, with some Indian and African touches. On stage, Labelle lives his music and invites the public to dance, and even to trance.

    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
