The Rainbow, in proud association with Concerts SA, present Blvck Crystals at The Rainbow on the 27th of January.
The Blvck Crystals are a five piece instrumental band influenced by experimental Jazz and Hip Hop sounds. The band comprises of Dalisu Ndlazi (Bass), Jaedon Daniel (Keys), Jude Kenrick (Drums), Nick Pitman (Guitar) and Nokwanda Nkala (Saxophone). The band also features two rappers, Karabo Moklate and Seth Banda, as well as vocalists Red Robyn and Victoria Raw. Each member plays a vital role in the evolution of the band’s dynamic sound.
The band formed in early February 2016 and has already managed to attain a uniquely dense presence in the Local live music scene. After planning, funding and headlining their own tour to Cape Town in July 2016 (where the band played at renowned gig venues such as ‘The Waiting Room’, ‘Straight no Chaser’, ‘Moholo Livehouse’ and ‘Piano Bar’) the band returned to drench Durban in its progressive, untamed sound.
The Blvck Crystals provide the South African music scene with colour, vision and a deep consciousness for music that takes the listener on a journey. A Blvck Crystals gig is a new and exciting experience for both the audience and the band as they allow for the energy of the time, and each other, to direct the music freely.
‘This is what most of the Show feels like, a fellowship of like-minded, creative souls who explore their music to greater depths and seek answers to their own questions.’ – A review by Gareth Harvey
