I Don't Sleep Anymore (feat. Rāms, Laliboi, MANGALISO ASI, SOMESAYFEDI & Muhammad Dawjee)
In South Africa, June marks Youth Month, honouring the young people who led a 1976 movement and sacrificed everything to stand up against a system that aimed to strip them of their identity and break their spirit. Their passion profoundly changed the country’s socio-political landscape—and 45 years later, the voice of South Africa’s young people is as strong as ever. Today, young people tap into a multitude of creative disciplines to find radical, new ways to stand up for the under-represented and to tell their own intersectional stories. YVNG & FREE celebrates the artists at the vanguard of a new South African sonic identity—one that’s expressive, fearless and boundary-free. Here, we shine a light on the most dynamic young musicians on the scene–from Zoë Modiga, Blxckie, YoungstaCPT, to Elaine, Filah Lah Lah, Muzi and more. Hear something that moves you?
