Sónar by Night - SonarLab - Resident Advisor
Hailing from Limpopo province in South Africa, Sho Madjozi adds a technicolour swirl of flavour into the McFlurry of African urban music with her vibrant polyglottal dance rap. Switching effortlessly between Tsonga and English, her debut full length “Limpopo Champions League”, released through her own Flourish and Multiply label is a joyous, syncopated romp through the sounds and trends of African dance music.
In a short time, Sho Madjozi has made serious waves in the world of African dance music Championed by everyone from producers Okmalumkoolkat and Dj Maphorisa through to Nigerian artist Ycee, who collaborated on the anthemic Wakanda Forever, she also performed at the last edition of Uganda’s influential Nyege Nyege festival. Live her embrace of styles as varied as gqom, singeli, shangaan electro or EDM-Pop pays off dividends, helped even further by a troupe of male dancers decked out in costumes she designs and makes herself. An unmissable addition to this year's Resident Advisor SonarLab.
