In the April edition of the Lowdown, Carla Fonseca of Batuk talks to writer Siyabonga-Andre Dennis about the rise of the band, pan-Africanism and more.
Person: Carla Fonseca
With a fresh album out that sonically reps South Africa, writer Siyabonga Andre Dennis and photographer Justice Mukheli capture the new Batuk.
Batuk go on a musical journey through the African continent to collect material for their debut album, out May 27th.
The beautiful visuals for Batuk’s track ‘Daniel’ ebb between the ochre hues of outdoor Mozambican splendour and luminous night scenes.
Newly formed collective Batuk aims to unify seemingly disparate cultures through their music, utilising rhythmic sound as a universal language.
This week’s art openings and events include solo shows by visiting artists, a CreativeMornings talk and a #CreativeHustles event, plus an inaugural multi-media group show. Go get your art on!
