MI CASA

TIME: 15:00 — 18:00

De Waal Park

 

Dance music never sounded so unique, so fresh, so original. Mi Casa is a live soulful dance trio out of the African continent. Live horns, vocals, keys, combined with deep soulful grooves this act is making some noise, and it sounds good. An energy on stage like no other. Since 2010 Mi Casa have dominated charts in South Africa with a total of 8 number 1 singles which included their smash hit Jika and Don’t Wanna Be Your Friend which both went multi-platinum and were the most played songs on national and continental radio platforms. The trio has hosted countless sold out shows in 31 African countries as well as in Portugal, UK, Netherlands, Italy, and Canada. What makes this band unique besides the music is their persona and values that are deeply rooted in making music that carries positive vibes and a good uplifting energy.

Other recent achievements of theirs include: 

– Sold out concerts in London, Rome, Portugal, Glasgow, Canada, Johannesburg, Durban, Cape Town and 23 other African countries.

– Performed at US President Barack Obama’s Inauguration.

– Nominated for MTV EMA for ‘Best African Act’ & ‘Best Group’ in 2016.

– Performed at the opening of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014.

– iTunes debut at #1 on the Musica local charts and the Musica overall charts.

– No.1 in the UK on BBC Radio 1Extra.

– Nominated for 3 MTV Africa Music Awards namely; ‘Artist of the Year’, ‘Best Group’ and the coveted ‘Song of the Year.’

– 2016 MAMA Nomination for ‘Best Group’.

Judging by their mind-blowing collaborations with the likes of C4 Pedro, Eddy Kenzo, Yemi Alade and Kenyan favorites Sauti Sol, it is evident that the band are in tune with the musical pulse of Africa, and 2018 will see the group embarking on the long anticipated ‘Legacy Tour’ which spans the African continent. This tour aims to invigorate our continent with as much positivity and philanthropy as Mi Casa can muster, all with the power of their glorious music!

While the band are most definitely looking forward to their ‘Legacy Tour’ next year, the rest of 2017 sees the band going further afield to play some impressive venues in Canada, Texas, Portugal and The UK. During Mi Casa’s international career, the guys have amassed a truly diverse fan base overseas and aim to grow this by the time the year is out. They will then bring it all back to their roots, firmly anchored in Africa, and continue to grow and share their creative output with their adoring fans the world over. This is a refreshing act. A must see. “We are nothing without people. All we wanna do is spread that good energy and make people dance. Looking forward to growing the familia across the globe.” J’Something, lead singer of the band.

GUGULETHU TENORS

Afro-operatic pop sensations The Gugulethu Tenors have become a household name in South Africa since the release of their self-titled debut album in 2011.  They have performed at some of SA’s top events and festivals, shared stages with local and international headliners, and been featured extensively in local and international media, whilst their fan base continues to expand, covering a wide and diverse audience.
Their journey to success, which started more than 10 years ago as four high school learners’ respective dreams of being on stage, has been widely publicised and serves as an inspiration to many. Performance highlights include representing SA during the 2010 FIFA World Cup, captivating thousands at Cape Town’s FanFests with their soothing harmonies and remarkable voices, boasting standing-ovations at festivals like Aardklop Arts Festival, Cultivaria and Klein Karoo Klassique to name a few, wowing corporate audiences across the country, and performing to politicians, dignitaries and superstars including Oprah Winfrey, Chris Rock and Mariah Carey.  The Gugulethu Tenors’ ambition goes beyond success as performers – collectively they aim to be role models for South Africa’s youth and, through their singing, to showcase the richness and diversity of South Africa’s cultural heritage.
