Bokani Dyer is heading to Cape Town late September for a trio of shows in support of his recently released album, Radio Sechaba and an outing with his acclaimed Bokani Dyer Trio. Radio Sechaba was released on May 12th by Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings.
The live dates get underway with a Radio Sechaba show on September 28th at the Olympia in Kalk Bay. On September 29th, Dyer will perform with his acclaimed Trio at The Wave in Long Street and his Mother City visit ends on September 30th with another Radio Sechaba launch show, this time at the Chimurenga Factory in Woodstock.
Bokani has also been busy with his recently released new YouTube series. As he revealed in his first conversation with The Brother Moves On’s Siya Mthembu, the prompt for Bokani to engage in these short but illuminating conversations was watching a Nina Simone documentary where she said, “An artist’s duty, as far as I’m concerned, is to reflect the times”.
The second in the Johannesburg-based conversations is with Thandi Ntuli whose trio of studio albums, including 2022’s Blk Elijah & The Children of Meroë, reveal an artist of depth and multiple gifts.
