Blending kwaito and samba, their single “Warrior” announces the release of a first and unique album, as a tribute to the talent of a South African singer named Khusi Seremane.
Soundway presents the first and unique album of the South African-American duo Thaba, Eyes Rest Their Feet, with a first single combining elements of kwaito and samba.
Thaba was a collaboration between South African singer/songwriter Khusi Seremane and American producer/musician Gabriel Cyr. In July 2020, while the two were working with Soundway to prepare the release, Seremane tragically died a few days before his 41st birthday, after fighting health issues for several years.
Thaba’s distinctive sound reflects a duality between pop heritage of artists from Mbaqanga (Zulu music) and Bubblegum, all wrapped in an electronic, introspective and sometimes jazz-tinged production style.
Gathered by a common love for kwaito, Seremane and Cyr collaborated for a decade after meeting online at the time of Myspace Music.
Eyes Rest Their Feet will be released on November 6th on a vinyl LP and in digital on Soundway Records.
