Jaak featured on the BBC’s Africa Beats

Jaak on Africa Beat on the BBC

In September 2012 Jaak shot an episode of Africa Beats, a series of short films shot by the BBC that exposes up and coming talent from the African continent. The episode featuring Jaak recently aired on BBC World and is placed permanently on the BBC website.

In this episode, Jaak talks about reclaiming the Afrikaans language for black and brown people, so they can take pride in it, rather than being ashamed of its association with the former oppressors. He also performs an acoustic version of ‘63,000’, a track from his forthcoming album, ‘Galant’, which vividly describes how his slave ancestors were brought to the Cape. Jaak is joined by Tebz (violin), Jonette (vocals) and Nossie (drums).

Jaak’s second album, ‘Galant’, will be out later this year. Stay tuned for more information.

In a nationwide consumer participation campaign – a first for South Africa – the SAB beer brand mobilised its loyal followers in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban to create their own concert in their city. Beer drinkers were asked to pick their favourite acts from a list of 25 leading artists.

In Cape Town, some of the hottest names in the music industry, including F.eU (DJ Fresh and Euphonik), AKA, Professor, Teargas, DJ Ready D and Driemanskap, are on the bill. The multi-genre show is set to take over Buiten Street – a connecting road between Long and Loop streets – and surrounding businesses and restaurants.

Party-goers can create their own experience by chilling at various venues: VIPs get access to Fiction Bar and Lola’s Café, while media and representatives have access to Maremoto. Buiten Street serves as the all-round dance floor and party area, and Chez Ntemba club is also open to all.

This 8-hour street bash – it starts at 4pm – also features a range of activities and mini-events before the main attractions take to the stage, including market stalls, as well as break dancers, BMX bikers, MC battles, skaters, and graffiti artists.
