Tracka de Day: Gazelle ft. Teba "Chic Afrique"

[embed width="560"][/embed]


This is our first official post on the Cape Town based electro-roots act Gazelle, but the group  are by no means newbies, breaking onto the scene in 2008 with "She Did Me." Headed by artistic visionary Xander Ferreira, and DJ  Nick Matthews, Gazelle produces funky- electro-disco with crooner vocals topped with a rich sense of style and strong political stance.  Xander uses the same repetition of imagery and over exposure that African dictators use to iconify themselves - but he uses it to poke fun. Today's Tracka de Day is his latest cinematic effort, which includes Kings, Queens, a Sangoma and the Tokolosh (look it up).
