South African pianist, singer and composer Bokani Dyer, an established multi award-winning artist with a growing global reputation shares “Move On”, the third single taken from his forthcoming album Radio Sechaba via Brownswood Recordings. Over soulful grooves, Afrobeat percussion and punchy horns, Dyer delivers an ode to calmness in the face of life’s difficulties: “Please, grant me wisdom to accept / The things I cannot change, and just move on”.
Bokani says Move On is: “a song about keeping it moving and letting go. Life has twists and turns but best to keep moving forward and not get stuck and fixed on the issues we face.”
“Move On” follows on from recent singles “Resonance Of Truth” and “Tiya Mowa”.
Out on 12 May 2023, Radio Sechaba addresses themes of nation-building and unity, giving an intimate view into South Africa’s multifaceted people and an opportunity for global connection through music.
The album continues Dyer’s creative journey of making rich and immersive music. It places him amongst the new wave of South African jazz artists, including the likes of Siya Makuzeni and Nduduzo Makhathini. Known to many for his standout contribution to Brownswood’s Indaba Is compilation, Dyer’s multi-faceted influences permeate the set of 15 original songs, resulting in a rewarding listening experience.
Bokani has just completed a successful 6 city US tour. Make sure to follow him online for his tour highlights and road to his Radio Sechaba album release out on 12 May 2023.
