Whilst Kaya FM & Bassline Live have been striving to bring the best in African acts to the ‘Live at the Lyric’ series over the past year, we are proud to announce a slightly different twist to the end of 2017, in the form of international house and soul sensation Tortured Soul.
100% live modern, deep, soulful house music that prides itself on being freed from the dj booth, Tortured Soul is one of the worlds most groove-centred acts. With a sound reminiscent of neo-soul groups like Jamiroquai or Brand New Heavies, it is also deeply saturated in the contemporary freshness of house purveyors like Joe Negro, Kenny Dope, Soul Clap and Disclosure. Loved and revered by South African audiences through word-of-mouth and strong radio play, this is one show that Afropolitans will not want to miss.
Led by frontman John-Christian Urich, Tortured Soul was quickly picked up by New York-based deep house label Central Park Recordings and the group was officially launched to the world. Since then it has become a staple amongst DJ’s across the globe and received major airplay, including a number 1 on Kaya FM.
