'The Status of Greatness'







CHIC AFRIQUE ALBUM LAUNCH

FRIDAY 30 JANUARY 2009

THE ASSEMBLY, 61 HARRINGTON STREET


Gazelle is a small but colorful part of the African Renaissance promoting the growth and world view of any African born art. The group was born in 2006 when founding member and acclaimed photographer Xander Ferreira started experimenting with producing electronic bedroom music. Mixing an element of Reggae Dub and Electro something fresh was found. Most recently Nick Matthews from bands such as Coda and the Iridium project has joined forces to create an international standard of production.

With a completely unique take and The Urban African chic scene, Gazelle is crossing the divides between Electro, disco, funk and pop, a colorful fashion palette and a sense of pride in what African contemporary music, art and fashion can become. Gazelle is scene definition in action. Dancers, live Band and astonishing outfits makes up this theatrical showcase.

For the past 2 years Gazelle has toured the European Summer across various destinations as a solo project. His appearances have seen him gig in Cities like Milan, Stockholm, London, Berlin, Rome, Copenhagen…and many more.

Not confining his talents to music alone, Gazelle is an acclaimed photographer and is currently publishing his first book 'The Status of Greatness' as part of his exhibition carrying the same name, exploiting the strategic process that figures of power use, to manipulate and control the minds and hearts of the people, Analyzing the lack of Greatness in modern day Status and the acknowledgement of the true African historical figures of Greatness.

The Exhibition is opening 28 January at What if The World Gallery

208 Albert Rd. Cape Town www.whatiftheworld.com
