Based in Cape Town, Black South Easter combine elements of Afro-pop, rocking reggae, funk, blues, jazz, soul and world dance, creating a unique progressive South African groove mixing the best of local flavours. Taking their name from the winds that blow across the Cape peninsula, the band’s live shows are known to generate a powerful energy, transporting their audience on a soulful journey, from the calm to the heart of the storm.
Black South Easter released their first full length album In Waves in 2012. Since then the band has received extensive airplay on SABC3 (television) with two music videos, Indoda and Waves, and on South African radio. The band has just released their follow up album “Breaking Walls” in September 2017. The album was recorded in Cape Town and Mozambique.
The band has four core members but play live shows with a Trombone player and a keyboardist.

Bassist Jimi Curve brings a pulsating groove to the outfit and has been a stalwart on the live music scene for the past 15 years, playing with a host of well-known artists including Steve Newman and Arno Carstens.
