The Goethe-Institut Johannesburg is proud to bring together the German techno-brass sensation MEUTE and the unique South African style of Bombshelter Beast.
MEUTE is a ground-breaking brass ensemble that combines hypnotic driving techno and expressive brass band music, freeing electronic music from the DJ desk and overhauling the image of marching bands. After only two years on the scene, the eleven musicians in their iconic red jackets are selling out their own club shows and have managed to spread their love for hand-made electronic music all over Europe as one of the continent's most booked festival bands. The videos of their impromptu street gigs regularly attract millions of views.
Joining them on stage will be local brass madness Bombshelter Beast, with their unique fusion of genre-busting old school Kwaito & House, Drum ‘n Bass, Dancehall, Dub, Ska, Balkan, Boeremusiek, Hip Hop, Ghoema, Rock, and the odd sneaky bit of Jazz – all peppered with badass rapping & live improvisations. The Beasts have continuously brought together lovers of music from different backgrounds across South Africa and every time they get on stage, their energetic performances rock the crowds no matter where they perform.
DJ Support by Stay True Sounds founder Kid Fonque and Jonny Mtsamay.
Join us on the evening of 23 May at The Good Luck Bar, where you could be the first to experience the “Bands of Brasse” joining together for an explosive celebration of brass and dance music, making sure no feet will be still.
