This Capetonian quartet fuses elements of rocking reggae, with 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 uplifting and revitalizing 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, to the tune of original Afro-fusion sounds.
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 recently released a new single recorded at Cosher Studios in Cape Town, called ‘Running’ and featuring King Gibbs.
Vocalist Nhoza Sitsholwana comes from a family of vocalists in the rural Eastern Cape, launching her career at the age of 17 as a backing vocalist for Simphiwe Dana. Her powerful voice incorporates rich blues tones with elements of traditional African soul music.
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, respected artists including Steve Newman and Arno Carstens.
Mozambican drummer Jerry Mbowa delivers a seasoned palette of Pan-African beats to the music and has toured extensively with the likes of The Sons of Selassie, amongst others.
Guitarist Dan Boshoff uses unusual tunings and progressions to bring an original colour to the Music.
