Cutting Cake with Moonchild Sanelly

Cutting Cake with Moonchild Sanelly

The moon is an intriguing body. Its shape evolves throughout the month, its gravity pulls on our waters, and it shines the light that stirs love and romance. It’s captivating, and on some nights, has a slightly spooky edge. The same, and more, could be said about Moonchild Sanelly.   Despite being told by Idols judges Randall Abrahams and Mara Louw that she wasn’t anything special, Moonchild Sanelly has waxed into a ghetto funk artist bristling with life and authenticity.   Her enigmatic sound is the result of a lifelong self-education in Hip Hop, Kwaito, Jazz, Funk and Dance music. A graduate of the ‘University of Authenticity’, as many call the Durban music scene, her music possesses a soulful individuality that speaks of the drumming circles and spoken poetry performances that marked her time there.   Moonchild is uninterested in packaging herself into a ‘marketable’ product, as prescribed by any number of industry experts. And her current success as an independent, unsigned artist has shown that this is in fact not necessary. “I don’t want anyone to put a weave on me, and I don’t need to make an English track to gain acceptance from my audience,” she says.   For now, both Moonchild and her current PR representatives are very excited about her prospects for collaboration as an independent artist.   “There are so many people that I would love to work with and I now have the choice to reach out to them. Record labels often gag creative collaboration based on the argument that the collaboration ‘doesn’t make sense’ or ‘isn’t right’,” she explains. “How can that be true if I am inspired by someone and I believe that we could create something cool together?” The choice to remain true to herself as an artist, and to not as a brand, has resulted in a diverse body of work that resonates with a wide audience.   The truly remarkable quality of Moonchild Sanelly is the fact that she proudly and authentically lives the new, vibrant and relevant African aesthetic. This new aesthetic recognises what has come before, and is an afropunk movement rich in cultural innovation.   She’s therefore part of the Renaissance that’s redefining what African looks, sounds and feels like.   “When I was studying fashion design, I refused to use traditional prints. I don’t have to do that, or any other obvious thing to be African. Anything that stems from me is naturally African. I don’t need to return to the past to claim my identity. I’d rather evolve from it into an original direction,” says Moonchild.   “This is something that respected musicians...

SoulProviders Takes A Sho’t Left with Mi Casa to The North West

SA’s most euphoric musical trio Mi Casa has been touring across the country with SA Tourism to discover and celebrate the exciting destinations and activities that their home sweet home has to offer. Accompanied by media and celebrities, they have already visited eight provinces and will conclude their travels this week with a sho’t left to Sun City and the Pilanesberg in the North West Province. “Through this project we hope to inspire South African to have their own #My1stShotLeft”, says J Something from Mi Casa. “We also have to realise that tourism puts food on people’s tables’, adds Mo-T. “When people travel, job opportunities are created, from the local tourist guide that takes you to the local chesa nyama to the guy that straps you in before you jump off the Soweto Towers. These experiences are not reserved for the rich and famous – they’re accessible to every South African’, Dr Duda concludes. Mi Casa is famously known for fusing elements fo jazz, house and pop to produce music that sends a groove through people of all ages. The band recently released their double disc album Home Sweet Home. The album features somes of SA’s hottest acts, such as Big Nuz and DJ Tira, and includes the hit collaboration with Euphonik Don’t Wanna Be Your Friend. The trip promises to be an entertaining one of car solitaire, chilling on the ‘beach’ at the Valley of the Waves, games drives, cable car trips, elephants, monkeys, luxury and a cocktail performance by the band. Follow the SoulProviders social media spaces on Facebook and Twitter to join in on the fun. Stuart Hendricks (managing editor & sneakily talented photographer) and I (writer & professionally excited fan) will join the band on the last leg of their tour to document the holiday vibes and get you amped about travelling in SA.  ...

PUMA & Trapstar Bring The Noise to SA

PUMA & Trapstar Bring The Noise to SA

by Stuart Hendricks Streetwear aficionados will be familiar with London-based label, Trapstar, and its edgy, urban aesthetic. Trapstar was created from underground, inner-city subculture, with design influences ranging from cinema, photography and music to contemporary art and military references. Their bold, graphic t-shirts and hoodies, tough leather biker jackets, and LDN-repping caps have become a firm favourite amongst the likes of Rihanna, Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea, A$AP Rocky and Cara Delevingne. The brand has truly become an ambassador for a new era of forward-thinking creative minds. To add an athletic edge to their non-conformist streetstyle character, Trapstar have partnered with PUMA to reinterpret Trapstar’s gritty silhouette and add a fresh, injection of athleisure that wouldn’t be out of place in London’s white-wall quarters. The Trapstar X Puma Autumn/Winter ‘16 teaser features the classic PUMA Disc amplified with the iconic ‘white noise’ graphic design of Trapstar. In turn, PUMA’s style has slinked its way into the Trapstar Leadcat. This football-inspired slide is set to become the elevated streetwear item of the year. Completing the teaser trio is the PUMA X Trapstar football jersey.  Produced from the same soft, engineered jacquard, with dry-cell technology, as other football gear, the jersey is a tense clash of inspiration merging functional sportswear with underground attitude. Where you would expect a club emblem you’ll find the Trapstar shield  The white noise print is incorporated as patch inserts, tying the jersey and the other items into a strong capsule range.        The PUMA X Trapstar teaser collection will be available from 17 June 2016 at PUMA SELECT stores in Bree Street, Cape Town and Braamfontein, Johannesburg, as well as selected retailers....
