Grammy nominated and double South African Music Award winner, Zakes Bantwini Bantwini will be at Rands in Khayelitsha, on Saturday 10 December 10, as part of The Glenmorangie Experience.
Still on a high from his Grammy nomination in the Best Global Performance category for the single Bayethe, Bantwini will be performing with a full band as part of a series of musical experiences that kicked off in November at Propaganda in Tshwane.
Says Josh Piketh, Brand Manager for Glenmorangie in South Africa: “The Glenmorangie Experience in Tshwane exceeded our expectations – the crowd was energized, singing and dancing along to all Zakes’s songs, and the overall vibe was incredible. We definitely painted Propaganda ‘orangie’.”
Judging by patrons’ rapturous response at that event, Cape Town audiences are in for a sensory treat – complete with dazzling sound, sparkling lighting, Instagrammable moments and Bantwini’s bespoke ‘orangie’ piano, which brought down the house!
In Cape Town, the Osama and Asanda hitmaker is once again poised to emerge from behind the decks to set the venue alight with a show-stopping performance.
Bantwini will be joined on stage by the sublime singer-songwriter Skye Wanda, whose irresistible Afro-house beats promise to get the crowd on its feet and grooving.
For one night only, there will also be a line-up of top performers; Ta Ntswempu, Lunar, Ms Shelly, Seavhe, Mabooty, Yeye and Dodge the Beloved, who will transform the club into a music wonderland.
Says Bantwini, “The Glenmorangie Experience at Propaganda was one of the best nights of my career as it felt like a 360 for me. I used to play with a live band, and lately with electronic music I haven’t played instruments – it would only be my DJ deck and vocals. At Propaganda, I had a bass, tuba, keys and a live vocalist. It was an amazing musical experience. Taking this to Cape Town, the crowd will be able to experience Zakes Bantwini differently because of the sound, the stage set up, the visuals and an-out of-this-world performance with a touch of what the SA music landscape is. We’ll usher you into the festive season through a very well curated musical journey.”
Bantwini is known as much for his Amapiano and house grooves as he is for his love of vibrant hues and fashion, and for his artistic creativity.
Doors open at 11am.
