This year’s annual DRUMBEAT concert will see the addition of South African new talent, Pilani Bubu, perform on 17 August 2013 at the Soweto Theatre. Pilani Bubu is a refreshing addition to the South African music industry.
Her powerful voice is captivating and her music tells a story of a ‘journey of a heart’ as her debut EP is aptly named. Pilani is a contemporary soul singer and songwriter. Her sound has infusions of soul, folk, jazz, rhythm & blues making for a uniquely refined and cohesive global sound with great cross over appeal.
As a new comer in the industry, Pilani enters the market with the aim of sharing her journey with listeners. Pilani has performed in Nigeria, Mozambique, New Orleans, and explored her music and sound in London and Dublin. With qualifications in Law, Marketing, and Interior Decorating; and having studied at the New York Film Academy focusing on Musical Theatre, this all makes her musical journey one worth experiencing with her.
Pilani will share the DRUMBEAT stage with the likes of Judith Sephuma, Thandiswa Mazwai, The Muffinz, Donald and Mafikizolo just to mention a few. Tickets are available from Computicket at a cost of R250.
