Thursday 6 August 6PM - Select Sessions with Boskasie
Boskasie is a Cape Town born and raised singer/songwriter currently residing in Johannesburg. Having grown up in a family full of Jazz music lovers, she is inspired by the nostalgic sounds of Cape Jazz with her mother being a trumpeter and her dad a vocalist in the boys brigade.
Her music has been described as following an authentic urban contemporary sound, while others experience it as neo-soul. This unique cross-genre appeal is what makes Boskasie so special - you can’t quite box her. Her music follows an easy, hypnotic feel which takes the listener on a journey of discovery through her lens, which she herself categorises as "eclectic soul". Eclectic melodies coupled with deep soulful lyrics.
