A blend of the African indigenous music genre, combined with tribal, ancestral vocal elements and drums, touch the soul. That is House and Maskandi– “Zulu Blues” a subgenre of Zulu Folk. Da Capo, who has become an internationally acclaimed producer and DJ, has been making waves since his youthful debut into the house music scene in 2008. His distinctive sound has caught the attention of Toronto DJ/ producer Nick Holder and South Africa’s internationally renowned DJ Black Coffee.As musicians often sing about real-life experiences, daily joys, sorrows, and observations of the world, Phuzekhemisi is one of the most charismatic and powerful forces of the Maskandi genre and is known to have been the first Maskandi artist to unapologetically incorporate political commentary into his sound. Joining these forces, Da Capo and Phuzekhemisi joined is sure to transcend South African music into the social stratosphere. Da Capo sets to take the “IMBIZO” remix and set the traditional Zulu blues/folk sound into the centre of the future and dances floors across the world.
