After taking a short break whilst on tour, Driemanskap have re-launched their massively successful monthly live event, Jukebox Sessions.
The event became so popular at the previous venue, Raggazzi, that hundreds of people were left disappointed outside, unable to get in because it was so overcrowded – you could feel the floorboards creaking under the weight. Jukebox Sessions has now moved to Platinum Lounge on Shortmarket Street, which is just around the corner from the original venue.
Driemanskap started the Jukebox Sessions as a platform to showcase the best in Cape Town hip hop. It is one of the few events in Cape Town to feature Spaza (vernacular) hip hop so heavily. The event has an intimate, ‘family’ atmosphere which is partly due to Kritsi’s hosting and unscripted comedy routines, where he regularly makes fun of the performers. The event is also a platform for up and coming artists to demonstrate their skills.
The latest instalment of Jukebox Sessions, on Saturday 3rd December, will feature iFani, who has become popular for his hilarious isiXhosa lyrics and infectious beats. His breakthrough hit, Ewe, has been on heavy rotation on TV and radio stations across South Africa. This will be his first performance in Cape Town.
Alongside iFani, expect performances by Ill Skills, Uzwi Kantu, Ma-B and Driemanskap. DJ Zwai and Beatology will be providing beats. Platinum Lounge is at 88 Shortmarket Street. R30 entrance.
If you want to experience Cape Town hip hop at its most raw, exciting and fun, make sure you don’t miss the next Jukebox Session. Check out the Facebook event page for more information.
