Considered one of the hottest duos in the electronic music scene right now, Mateo and Karm, aka TALE OF US, perform for the first time in South Africa and Africa as part of a fundraiser tour, in partnership with Bridges for Music who will join forces with

TALE OF US will perform for free at two fundraising shows one in partnership with TOY TOY (Johannesburg – AND club- 27th Feb) and KINKY DISCO (Cape Town- Venue TBA – 28TH Feb). The aim is to support Bridges for Music’s educational projects in townships like Langa (Cape Town), where the NPO is raising funds to build a creative school for underprivileged talent to flourish. Every ticket purchased goes towards making this dream a reality.

 

The duo has played at the top festivals around the world during the last year, making them currently one of the most in-demand. Proof of this is their recent Essential Mix on the world’s most respected radio program, BBC RADIO 1, hosted by Pete Tong. Their last remix of Caribou´s “Can´t do without you” took the internet by storm reaching over 1million plays very quickly.

TALE OF US will be supported by a stellar line-up of local artists including, Trancemicsoul, Jazzuelle, Deep Aztec, AudioJerk Cabin Crew, Dogstar, Fabio, Killer Robot, Thibo Tazz and Black Book, all performing at both events.

Beyond the fundraising tour, a new free workshop will be announced in the townships of Langa in an attempt to bring people from different communities together through the universal language of music. TALE OF US wants to engage in the local scene and inspire others through these conversations about music and life.

Following this past weekend’s tour with Loco Dice, Bridges for Music tours some of the hottest international artists in a pioneering way with the goal to positively impact underprivileged communities in South Africa. After Resident Advisor secured the core funding to build this school, the aim of these tours is to secure the funds to sustain the Langa school during its first years and offer sponsored studies to young upcoming artists.
