Simphiwe Dana Celebrates Ten Years in Afro-Soul Music
Simphiwe Dana Celebrates Ten Years in Afro-Soul Music and will be performing live at The Bassline in Joburg on the 25th of April 2015.
If you’re going, you can look forward to one of her beautiful performances at one of the city’s most popular venues.
The event is being put together by Kaya FM and The Bassline. The radio station has been an influential part of her musical career ever since her debut album titled ‘Zandisile’. When she won her first SAMA award back in 2005, Kaya FM celebrated alongside her.
“The social activist within Simphiwe is what caught my attention many years ago when we first met. She epitomises the Afropolitan women we strive to celebrate on a daily basis at Kaya FM. Dana’s timeless music has a strong social awakening which will remain relevant and celebrated for many more years to come in South Africa” said Greg Maloka, Managing Director at Kaya FM.
Her return to The Bassline venue is a commemorative performance where she first launched her platinum selling debut album, ten years ago.
She will be performing music off of her latest album titled ‘Firebrand’ which is nominated for two SAMAs this year, including a few all-time favourites.
“Music has allowed to me voice my opinions about the world I live in, and I am just truly grateful that the continent has been so receptive to my sound and story. Kaya FM has always been a major supporter of my music. Our brands are very similar in that we speak to the progressive, socially conscious citizen.” says Simphiwe Dana
She is also no stranger to accolades and boasts six South African Music Awards (SAMA), two METRO FM Music Awards (Best Female Artist and Best Contemporary Jazz), an Avo Session Award in Europe, and a Metropolitan Eastern Cape Arts and Culture Award and a Pan South African Language Award.
