In August 2013 my wife and I went to Oppikoppi Festival 2013 – South Africa’s biggest, dustiest and most iconic music festival, now in its 19th year. Because I co-host the Wrong Rock Show on Bush Radio 89.5FM, I usually make contact with a few artists to buy their new releases and have a quick chat. One artist who amazed me three weeks prior to Oppikoppi with his debut album was Nakhane Touré and I managed to meet up with Nakhane after his performance to record an episode showcasing his album and his myriad musical influences.
You can listen to the episode below (press the green play button), or find it here. Since then Nakhane has been on the cover of Rolling Stone South Africa and will support Suzanne Vega on her South African tour in November. If you have not yet purchased a copy of the album Brave Confusion, you sure will after listening to his amazing music.
