Spoek Mathambo & Mshini Wam – Gwababa (Don’t be scared)

Posted on 29 March 2010 by Jelka

Wow, here is the first video for Spoek Mathambo’s upcoming debut album, Mshini Wam, performed together with his live band of the same name (Richard the Third, Jakob Snake, Yolanda & Avuyile). The clip is shot on location in the Cape Town club La Referance. For me Spoek is one of the most interesting and creative artists at the moment, I love his music projects (solo work, Sweat.X, Slush Puppy Kids, Mshini Wam), his blog, his style, everything ;).
Coined as post punk township tech that’s music to shake your booty but with a undeniable dark attitude. Watching the video my first thought was: ‘We are the Bork’. This reference to cyborgs is another interesting south african approach to question fixed identities after the recent hype around Die Antwoord and their construction of white trash alter egos.
