Nakhane - New Brighton feat. ANOHNI (Official Vide...
South African singer, songwriter, author and actor Nakhane Toure (now known simply as Nakhane) is one of the country's most exciting new alternative acts of recent years. Just 31 years old, Nakhane's remarkable and meteoric rise to global stardom is a testament to the mesmerising star's multiple talents and hypnotic stage presence. In 2013 he released his debut album, followed two years later by his first novel and then in 2017 Nakhane starred in the critically acclaimed Xhosa-language film Inxeba (The Wound) which was short-listed for a best foreign-language film Oscar.

Since 2018 Nakhane has been living in the UK and unfortunately live performances on home turf by the star are becoming increasingly rare, although his move to Europe has undoubtedly helped propel him further into the global spotlight. Through the last year Nakhane has being touring the world courting the praise of the likes of  the New York Times (who said of his new album You Will Not Die "Nakhane’s music has an orchestral grandeur and a quicksilver soul"), Elton John, who interviewed him on the radio, and even Madonna, who has described him on Instagram as "one of her favourite artists".

Not only is this concert (one of only three that Nakhane is performing in South Africa this year) a rare opportunity to catch one of SA's most exciting young musicians performing live, it is also taking place at an awesome downtown venue - Arts on Main in Maboneng - that is packed with the kind of atmosphere that befits a leading alternative global star.
