Acclaimed South African singer, songwriter, actor, and novelist Nakhane is one such musician.

Celebrated for their incredible vocal tones and inimitable style, Nakhane is set to mesmerise the Melbourne Recital Hall’s Elisabeth Murdoch Hall with their polyrhythmic wall of sound and unique blend of South African Gqom and Kwaito.

The performance will be Nakhane’s first in four years, having recently returned to the scene with their new single Tell Me Your Politik, a track that features ferocious rap from fellow South African artist Moonchild Sanelly and guitar work from the legendary Nile Rodgers. Tell Me Your Politik is a powerful and erotic call to action, boldly declaring that sex is a political act.

It’s another insightful release from Nakhane, who has an extensive and culturally significant body of work in music, film and literature that challenges the status quo in conversations about gender and sexuality.

Tickets for Nakhane are available here.

Season One: Horizon is bringing some seriously cool music your way. Having already hosted performances from the likes of from award-winning Australian electric bassist and composer Claire Cross, Mindy Meng Wang & Paul Grabowsky, the series will soon play host to the likes of Cowboy Junkies (who are returning for the first time in 20 years), Laura Jean, Tim Rogers, Tex Perkins, New Zealand rockers The Chills, and the pop-indie, alternative-country sweetheart Angel Olsen.

Immerse yourself in the Australian landscape with Season One: Horizon and get lost in some seriously captivating and truly unique music.
