With a deep melodic focus, Melodiesinfonie’s influences range from Hip Hop and Funk to Jazz. He is also one part of the Boyoom Connective a record label, collective and movement of free spirited beat music makers based in Switzerland.
Performing in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town, this tour is curated by Johannesburg based collective, Weheartbeat, and forms part of Pro Helvetia Johannesburg’s annual music programme.
Taking place within the broader Fak’ugesi 2017 Festival, the Fak’ugesi Beats Lab seeks to connect and cogitate young creatives in this week-long journey. Beginning on the 7th of September, music, technology and filmmaking are the focus; collaboration, co-creation and courage are key.
“The Fak’ugesi Beat Lab is a week long journey into the world of music, tech and film, housing a selection of specially curated artists ready to polish and publish their original works through a collaborative process that will culminate at the festival finale in a showcase of mass proportions. We are very excited about this part of the program and look forward to the outcomes,” says Dominique Soma of Weheartbeat.
Following the Johannesburg engagement, Melodiesinfonie moves on to Durban for performance at the Winston Pub, and in a Cape Town venue to be confirmed.
