The ‘Hlanganani Project’ is an initiative started by UK based, South African duo Sahin Meyer. The project hopes to inspire and motivate the musical youth of South Africa whilst exposing the best of local South African music.
The initiative strives to showcase a new breed of artists and promoters pushing boundaries but still keeping in touch with their South African roots and not driven solely by profit – but by a burning desire to help grow the music scene.
Local South African promoters that are participating in the project are Private Life, Junta Movement, For The Record, Plastic People and a few others. It will provide a platform for musicians, promoters, marketers and record label owners to interact with one another before getting to party to their favourite international artists.
The project will launch with Andre Lodemann performing on the 29th Nov / 30th Nov and 1st Dec 2013 in Cape Town, Johannesburg & Durban respectively.
The entire project will spread over four weeks in three South African – Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban with XDB and Mario Basanov the confirmed (so far) international acts for the tour.
The local support contingent of artists will comprise of Julz Sanchez, Dario, Terrence Pearce, Sahin Meyer, Erefaan Pearce, House Knights, 2lani The Warrior, Kid Fonque and Chris Keys.
