AFRICA IN YOUR EARBUDS #28: THE BROTHER MOVES ON

For Africa In Your Earbuds #28 The Brother Moves On mix Tumi and The Volume, Animal Collective, Just A Band, Gil Scott-Heron, Kay Ara + more.


Jo'burg based The Brother Moves On aren't easy to condense. The self-described "collaborative piece of performance art in the form of a band," often labeled by SA writers as 'afro space folk funk,' live in a highly-hybrid realm, compounding a vast number of genres and ideas in search of a sound with which to describe post-apartheid South Africa.

For this installment Africa In Your Earbuds The Brother Moves On offer a dense mix featuring tracks/reworkings from an ecletic cast: Tumi and The Volume, Animal Collective, Just A Band, Gil Scott-Heron and Kay Ara and an introduction that pairs audio from Neil Armstrong's moon landing with H.F. Verwoed speaking on apartheid.
