Kwaito legends, Trompies, to join Afropunk Line Up

by: Terry Simelane-Mathabathe - 13 December 2018

Trompies joins The Internet, Kaytranada and more

Kwaito legends, Trompies, is set to perform at this year’s Afropunk Joburg. Formed in Soweto in the ‘90s, Trompies are central to creating the music and movement known as kwaito.

The Sweety Lavo hitmakers will be joining this year’s Battle of the Bands winners Red Robyn, a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Durban and Port Elizabeth’s soulful acoustic duo Ikati Esengxoweni.

The theme at AFROPUNK Joburg this year is THE PEOPLE RESIST, a call to action against racism, patriarchy and any form of hate. Trompies, Red Robyn and Ikati Esengxoweni now join the AFROPUNK Joburg line up that features Kwesta, DJ Maphorisa, Thandiswa, The Internet, Kaytranada, FAKA, BBZ, Big Freedia. Anais B, K-$, and Phatstoki will be on the decks.

Tickets are available here
