Art Mixtape! South Africa’s Spoek Mathambo Sounds Off May 27 2017

Art Mixtape is back with more art and music marriage magic. Today's installation is courtesy of uber-talented South African multihyphenate Spoek Mathambo. A musician, artist, producer, DJ, filmmaker, and all-around inimitable iconoclast, Mathambo also coined the terms Guzu (based on Zulu guitar music) and Township Tech (electronic club music), to describe the two styles of music he producers.

This Art Mixtape is served with a twist—Mathambo chose to mix it up and share his thoughts on his pairings, giving some fascinating context for his music + art matchmaking. Get a taste below, then head over to our blog for the main course.

P.S. Want framed art delivered for Father’s Day? Your last chance to order in time for guaranteed arrival is this Monday, 5/29/17.
