KHULI CHANA & SHO MADJOZI SET TO TAKE THE AFRICAN CREATIVE REVOLUTION ACROSS THE COUNTRY WITH TWO LEAD UP EVENTS AHEAD OF THE ONE SOURCE LIVE FESTIVAL

#BeAbsolut #OneSourceLIVE

Khuli Chana and Sho Madjozi are set to go on a two city tour of South Africa to invite everyone to join the Creative Revolution and change how the world sees Africa ahead of the One Source Live Festival this March. Sho Madjozi will perform at the first Lead-up event in Durban, and will be joined by Khuli Chana a week later when she hits Jo’Burg.

The two events will be the first milestones in the creative revolution that is taking over the continent. Music lovers will get a first taste of what to expect at One Source Live when emerging creatives across music, fashion and art all come together to celebrate African creativity when the continent converges in Jo’burg for a unique experience. Chana and  Madjozi will not stand alone as they spread the flames of the African creative movement. They will ascend the stage alongside a league of star DJs churning out electrifying grooves to ignite the revolution as it spreads across the country and the world.

DJ Voodoo will light up the night in both Durban and Jo’Burg with a host of local resident DJs who will hold up the musical flame when Madjozi arrives for the lead-up events.

This is also an opportunity for revellers to be the first to enjoy the newly crafted five ABSOLUT signature cocktails which will be served to honour the five revolutionaires – Khuli Chana, Sho Madjozi, Trevor Stuurman, Fabrice Monteiro and Osborne Macharia who carry the blue flame of African creativity across the continent and the world.

Lucky music and art lovers will stand a chance to win tickets to One Source Live which takes place on Saturday 24 March 2018.

About One Source Live

One Source Live is an event that celebrates African Creativity by bringing together a host of African artists, musicians, fashion designers and photographers to collaborate. Led by Absolut Ambassador and Creative revolutionary Khuli Chana, these artists are coming together to tell a new, uplifting, and positive story about Africa as the creative engine of the world. One source Live is inspired by ABSOLUT Vodka‚Äôs one source philosophy. Unlike most other vodkas, Absolut is entirely produced from one source in Ahus, Sweden. Hence, OSL aims to remind people that we all come from one source, Africa; the one source of humanity and the source of creativity.

Along with an exciting line-up of Artists, the ONE SOURCE LIVE creative revolutionaries Khuli Chana, Sho Madjozi, Trevor Stuurman and Osborne Macharia will return to the festival in November 2018 with new installations and musical collaborations.The African Creative Revolution continues, join and celebrate the power of African creativity at ONE SOURCE LIVE
