Video: Ruffest 'Siyabenzela'


Ruffest are a two-man kwaito ensemble compromised of Cape Towners Max and Sello. The duo began their career as dancers in South Africa but, after gang crossfire left Max's legs paralyzed, turned to crafting their own tunes. In the clip for their latest single "Siyabenzela," a quiet Nyanga neighborhood turns full-fledged afro house street party with the aid of a solar-powered garbage bin/DJ booth (!). Stream and download Ruffest's 3-song Red Bull Studios CT EP below.
