It’s impossible to listen to Hot Water without having to fight an uncontrollable urge to jump up and start dancing to their infectious rhythms. When frontman Donovan Copley, the band’s founder and creative heart, gets up on stage to perform, along with his backup band of seriously talented SA musos, as diverse as the country itself, you simply can’t sit still…
Their music – ‘South African Folk-Rock’, as Copley calls it – layers the sounds of traditional mbaqanga, kwela and maskanda with a more contemporary folk-rock vibe. Throw in a few danceable rhythms, woven through with Copley’s raw, sweet voice and inspiring dreamlike lyrics and… well, come and see for yourself – it’s guaranteed to be unforgettable.
