TheCITY

TheCITY is a Future Afro Band formed in Cape Town, South Africa. Guided by a strong belief in paying tribute to their musical heritage, they blend African rhythms and grooves with electronic sounds and soulful melodies. In 2015 They launched their self-titled, debut EP, which received airplay and outstanding reviews. In 2016 they were awarded the SAMRO / Concerts SA mobility grant which allowed them to complete their first international tour, a highly successful 11 gig tour of Tanzania and Zanzibar. 2017 sees the anticipated release of their 2nd EP "Citizenship"

The band consists of: Bonj Mpanza on lead vocals & percussions; Clement Carr on production, keys; saxophone and backing vox; and Ryan McArthur on bass guitar, synth bass and backing vox. They also frequently collaborate with drummer/producer Reuben Crowie. As well as studying music at a university level, all three members have earned their stripes playing in top South African and International acts like: Petite Noir, Tresor, Jeremy Loops, Crazy White Boy, Goodluck, The Kiffness, Jimmy Nevis, Card on Spokes and The Rudimentals before joining forces to create TheCITY.
