The city of Pretoria will play host to Ballantine’s True Music Series in South Africa, in partnership with radio host, DJ and producer, Kid Fonque, at the African Beer Emporium on Friday, 30 November.
Collaborating with famed Argentinian-Spanish visual and kinetic street artist Felipe Pantone, the Ballantine’s True Music Series is an annual project that gives uncompromising artists a unique platform to share and visualise music and different music scenes that inspire artists and fans worldwide.
The artists on the line-up, which include AtJazz & Jullian Gomes, FKA Mash and Kid Fonque, will all connect their music to the artwork created by Felipe Pantone. The artwork will act as its own equaliser, allowing musicians to experience a visual representation of the music they produce and play within the space, ensuring a performance experience like no other for music fans.
Felipe Pantone’s latest designs for the Ballantine’s True Music Series were inspired by underground club culture, the recording and production process, and music soundwaves.
“Pretoria is the home of house music in South Africa, it’s where some of the legends of house were born and raised, we’re happy to be bringing such as unique event to this city first. It’s going to be an exceptional experience to see house music come to life through the artwork that Felipe Pantone will be providing” says Kid Fonque.
The event takes place on Friday, 30 November from 7pm. Tickets are available at Quicket for R100 (link). For more information on the Ballantine’s True Music Series visit http://www.ballantines.com/truemusicseries.
