Native Young Summer Tour 2023
Beginning in the townships of Cape Town as a recording experiment for South African songwriter and producer Yannick Wilde – Native Young has transformed into a supergroup of rotating talent from all walks of life. A true sonic chameleon, their ever changing sound is a fusionn of anthemic uplifting vocals, electronic folk and raw African rhythm.
Having garnered a SAMA (South African Music Award) for ‘Best Alternative Album’ with their debut LP ‘Kings’, along with playing stand out sets at international festivals – Fusion (Germany), Zermatt Unplugged (Switzerland) and Lake of Stars (Malawi) – the project has captivated the hearts of an international audience across Africa and Europe.
As for the future, Native Young will be promoting a collection of new singles in 2023 beginning with the infectious summer track ‚Pamela‘ followed by the release of a brand new EP ‚Kasi Girlz‘. The collective will then head out on tour in September playing exclusive showcase performances and headline shows in Europe to support these new releases. Thereafter the brotherhood plans to retreat into rural South Africa to finish recording their highly anticipated sophomore album – scheduled to drop in 2024.
Music is that ephemeral expression that seems to connect us all and It’s this sentiment that boldly shines in the raw and colourful tale of Native Young.
