Afrocoustic was recorded at Digital Forest studios over a period of a few days. The tracks were recorded with live takes filled with the type of energy you can only find on stage.
If you missed Gerald Clark's fantastic show at the Mieliepop Festival over the weekend, be sure to catch him either in Benoni or Norwood.
Gerald Clark is unmistakably one of the best musicians I have ever seen and soon he will delight crowds in the UK. Before we lose him to the international circuit, get your ass down to one of these shows.
You most probably know who Johnny Clegg is, South Africa's white Zulu. If not, you surely recognised the following names: Annie Lennox, Carlos Santana, Peter Gabriel, Robert Plant, Sipho Hotstix Mabuse, Ernest Ranglin, Brian May, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, The London Chamber Orchestra, The Soweto Gospel Choir and Oliver Mtukudzi. He has record and performed with all of them.
I'm speaking about the legendary drummer and percussionist, Barry van Zyl.
Gerald Clark and Barry van Zyl are joining forces for Gerald's next solo and 5th studio album. This is going to be a collaboration to remember and they are giving you a sneak peek into the new album over the weekend. Gerald will be joined by Barry on the 2nd of March at Cafe Roux in Noordhoek and on the 3rd at Bootlegger in Kalk Bay.
With Gerald on the acoustic guitar and vocals, and Barry with his masterful touch on the drums and percussion, it promises top class music and great show.
