Weheartbeat in partnership with Concerts SA is very excited to present ZUKO COLLECTIVE live at Lahliwe’s in Khutsong on Sunday the 22nd April 2018.
The aim of this initiative is to develop new audiences and appreciation for live music in areas located outside central Johannesburg as well as showcase young fresh South African talent on new platforms throughout Gauteng.
This edition sees the band coming back to Lahliwe’s for a second time to present their latest offering, a fusion of alternative sounds of Caribbean feel with an indigenous essence, the music can be described as a collection of cries and celebrations.
Supported by the Merafong Jazz Forum this event aims to attract a new audience young and old to the venue with the intention of drawing more interest in live music from the surrounding community.
Zuko Collective (ZUCO.) is a musical relationship between Nozuko Mapoma and a variety of creatives, who together form the collective, creating sound as pure and authentic as Africa. The music is a wonderful, imaginative African Eclectic sound of funk-jazz married with the husky, holistic and enchanting vocals of Zuko. The band is able to capture contrasting emotions into single songs that ultimately compiles a spiritually awakening, therapeutic and upbeat product. It is a collective of people who resemble something which is bigger than themselves – truth.
