It's been a while since I shared a South African musical gem. The irony been that along worth 'real world' work pressures, much of my free time has been taken up with experiencing various of our country's crop of talented musicians live. No regrets there.
Unfortunately I have not experienced this week's featured artist live ... yet. I have been following Black Porcelain's journey on her blog Music, Life and Music
for a long while, and it was with great excitement that, after not visiting for too long, I read that she has posted a few singles from her EP "Green" @ Myspace
for us all to hear.
I have been struggling to categorise her music style, especially as her musical inspirations seem rather diverse, and really don't want to compare to Lira as this may be a little unfair. The sound is a little afro-jazzy, but with a hint of hip-hop here and there and there is just a small bit of pop infused in there as well... ok, if you enjoyed Lira
(and I know many readers did!
) then you will appreciate Black Porcelain's compositions. I capitulate!
