The Hennessy Artistry Tour hits Cape Town this weekend with Slikour, Flash Republic, Crazy White Boy, ProVerb (MC) & guests in the blend…
This week MyCityByNight caught up with Flash Rebublic and this is what they had to say:
What attracted you to Hennessy Artistry?
We were attracted to this project because Hennessy is a respected brand and we have great respect for the relationship Hennessy has developed with Music and musicians around the world. We were also quite excited to participate in the project when we found out what other artists were on board.
As a South African Artist, how does it feel to be part of campaign which has worked with international artists such as Q-Tip and The Roots?
Well yes. Hennessy has worked with some amazing artists. Its exciting to bring our own unique african style to the Hennessy Artistry campaign.
There’s a unique blend of musical talents, genres and generations – how has it been working with all these artists?
All the local contributors hit it off immediately and we’ve all worked really well together. We all really wanted to deliver a Smasher track.
Have you worked with any of these artists before?
Tamara has shared the stage with Both Slikour and Zonke a couple of times.
How does your unique sound complement the other collaborating artists?
We all really compliment each other. All the different energies jelled beautifully.
What can we expect at your Hennessy Artistry build up event this weekend?
We wanna rock the party of course?! We are super excited to perform as Flash Republic, to share the stage with all Hennessy’s talented collaborators and of course to have a party ourselves
Have you played in this city before?
