Sunday Edition returns this weekend, a few months after its first offering of the majestic combination of Petite Noir and Bongeziwe Mabandla at the end of May. With the aim of celebrating South African creative culture, in collaboration with Cape Town music agency Black Major and Neighbourgoods Market, Sunday Edition offers a diverse and liberated line-up of local musicians, independent artists and designers, street food chefs and sidewalk industrialists.
Following the release of their 2016 album Our Truth and right off the back of yet another tour to Europe, this will be BCUC’s first performance in Cape Town in 2017. They are rapidly evolving into one of the country’s most successful musical exports and Sunday Edition is giving Cape Town fans an opportunity to witness the group’s increasingly explosive live show for themselves.
Thus far, KAJAMA’s hometown fans in Joburg have been privy to the lion’s share of the future-soul sister-duo’s performances, with Cape Town fans undoubtedly excited to see how their live performance has developed since their visit to the mother city in May. Since the release of their debut EP Polarity Prism at the beginning of the year, the duo have been writing new material and working on their live performance, but also released a spectacular video in July for the track ‘Lunar Moonlight’ ft. Tribal Rebel Ludi. It’s going to be great to see how much Nandi and Nongoma have progressed in matching their live performance with the dreamy, futuristic quality of their recordings.
The day will also play host to DJ Fred Spider, DJ Mighty and the Endless Daze DJs, as well as an exhibition of Mr Fuzzy Slipper’s surreal landscapes which urge you to explore different modes of being. The market aspect of the day will also be alive and well with some of Cape Town’s most exciting local streetwear labels, vintage stores and food trucks.
In the meantime get in the mood with one of BCUC’s most recent performances from their European tour at Festival Détours du monde 2017 below:
