Multi awarded and Grammy nominated artist Bonobo landed in South Africa a few days before his sold out show at Kirstenbosch to share his career insights at the Bridges Academy in Langa (Cape Town). We are honoured and thankful to him and his team for sharing the secrets of his consistent growth in the world stage through a sound that could have considered letfield at some point but got him to sell out venues world wide.

We had a quick chat with one of our 2018 SAE Institute South Africa scholarship recipients - Thina Sonya!

1. What has been a highlight of the course?

Meeting other foreign individuals who were as aspirant as I, but how we all used each of our individual’s strengths to further mould each other’s ideas throughout the course.

2. How has the course furthered your career as a creative?

Considering that I am more of a creative than anything else, the course has made me much more business orientated. Which is amazing because it has provoked an entrepreneurial spirit within my creative process which may prove lucrative to my future.

3. What was the most important lesson you learnt from the course?

I've learnt that every idea can be turned into an opportunity and be monetised. This might have been the most important lesson or experience learnt for me personally.

Some music industry friends and partners cycled from Berlin to Amsterdam arriving at ADE ( Amsterdam Dance Event) to raise funds for the Bridges Academy in Langa (South Africa). This ride was powered by Pioneer DJ and with the great support of Awakenings festival among many other friends in the industry. Thanks to all the brave riders who rode 650km !
