The Goethe-Institut South Africa is proud to bring together the German techno-brass
sensation MEUTE and the unique South African style of BOMBSHELTER BEAST.
MEUTE is a ground-breaking brass ensemble that combines hypnotic driving techno and
expressive brass band music, freeing electronic music from the DJ desk and overhauling the
image of marching bands. After only two years on the scene, the eleven musicians in their
iconic red jackets are selling out their own club shows and have managed to spread their
love for hand-made electronic music all over Europe as one of the continent's most booked
festival bands. The videos of their impromptu street gigs regularly attract millions of views.
Joining them on stage will be local brass madness BOMBSHELTER BEAST, with their
unique fusion of genre-busting old school Kwaito & House, Drum ‘n Bass, Dancehall, Dub,
Ska, Balkan, Boeremusiek, Hip Hop, Ghoema, Rock, and the odd sneaky bit of Jazz – all
peppered with badass rapping & live improvisations. The Beasts have continuously brought
together lovers of music from different backgrounds across South Africa and every time they
get on stage, their energetic performances rock the crowds no matter where they perform.
Join us on the evening of 23 May at The Good Luck Bar, where you could be the first to
experience the “Band of Brasse” joining together for an explosive celebration of brass and
dance music, making sure no feet will be still.
Tickets for the show are available from howler.co.za for R100 and at the door for R150.
