Closet Snare Album Launch


Closet Snare is launching their debut album, ”Live At The Armchair Theatre” next Wednesday at the most potent live venue in Cape Town - The Assembly, with other African Dope chums, Mix n Blend and 7ft Soundsystem on the bill. We’ve put their album up in our Online Dope Store as of today for Pre-Order. (Physical CD’s only, and we’ll send you a copy of the full album on MP3 while you wait… cause we’re the good guys.

The talent in this group is so abundant, I’m going to stop writing right now, and start an elaborate cut, paste and edit mission:

Closet Snare is a project involving a select group of talented and experienced musicians along with Visual Artist The Grrrl.
Between the lot of them, they’ve recorded and worked with the likes of: Johnny Clegg, Melanie Scholtz, Plush, Godessa and Max Normal, Paul Hamner, Marcus Wyatt, Just Jinger, Zim Ngqwana, Miriam Makeba, Faya Faku and Jimmy Dludlu.

Listen to Closet Snare On Soundcloud

The project was conceptualized 5 years ago, and it is only now that these much talked about ideas are able to become a musical reality. The group is a platform where the musicians performing may produce music without any boundaries, genres or trends.

Members include: Mr.Sakitumi - Machines and Keyboard, Kesivan Naidoo - Drums, Lee Thomson - Trumpet, Mark Buchanan - Electric Guitar/Sampler/Fretless bass-9-String, Shane Cooper - A.K.A. Card on Spokes - Electric Bass, and The Grrrl - Visuals.

They’ve all been to Europe and back many times over, and they’ve played at tippity top festivals like: ‘North Sea Holland’, ‘MontrĂ©al Jazz Festival’ and ‘The Chilemontana Jazz Fest’ to name but a few.

Beat that! Enjoy the jazz,
African Dope
