Shangaan Electro pioneer to tour

A fusion of local folk tradition, Tsonga disco, kwaito and South African house, Shangaan Electro is much more than some novelty sound.

Bursting out of Africa, it's a representation that electronic dance music exists far beyond the usual poles of Detroit, Cologne and London.

Arriving in the UK last year for a series of special events, Shangaan Electro pioneer Nozinja has now penned a deal with Warp.

There's no word as yet on any releases, but Nozinja has confirmed a number of live dates. Playing Bristol on April 29th, the performer will then head to Brighton for a one off show.

Hitting Liverpool Sound City, Nozinja will play London on May 4th before finishing his short UK trip in Sheffield.

Check out a documentary on Shangaan Electro below.
