On Friday I was lucky enough to interview the lovely Zaki Ibrahim for Perdeby. She played at Arcade Empire alongside Reason with 37 & MPH as well as Tumi Molekane and Yesterday's Pupil. Tumi and Peach are, in my opinion, the most interesting collaboration around at the moment. At one point Peach was singing a piece from Bittereinder's 'Ware Verhaal' and Tumi was rapping. To see the two maestros sharing a stage was such a treat, especially when they performed 'The Beast' right at the end.
And then there was Zaki Ibrahim, whose voice is rich and soulful. I love that every song is different and that her music is not confined to a specific genre. It's exciting and refreshing and has left me the most interested follower of her work.
I really need to start taking my camera with me more often. I've gotten lazy because of my phone and the quality of my photos suffers. Apologies.
