Slaves to the Rhythm: Analogue to Digital
Presenting Company: Slaves to the Rhythm
Presenters: Barry van Zyl & Josh Hawkes
Renowned drummer Barry van Zyl (Johnny Clegg’s long-time drummer) and bassist Josh Hawkes (Freshlyground, Streaks, Zap Dragons) present up close and personal workshops, illustrated by live performance – creativity and innovation through the lens of globally experienced South African musicians and ambassadors of Southern African culture.
Barry and Josh will take you through the seismic disruptions that have impacted the music industry, and the way creative output is produced and distributed. Technology has always been fast tracked to benefit the business imperative, from early wax recorders to CD technology, to file downloads, and the new reality of streaming platforms. The core product however is unchanged: a great song is still a great song.
