Anelli Kamfer and Flash Ikumkani will take on the main stage from 4:30 pm to 6 pm.

Anneli Kamfer

Anneli Kamfer, born in the beautiful town of Swellendam, started singing at the age of 13 and never looked back since. With a fiery stage personality coupled with incredible musicianship, this spellbinding vocalist leaves audiences sitting on the edge of their seats.

After the parting of popular Cape Town-based gypsy jazz Manouche, lead vocalist Anneli Kamfer stepped into the world as a solo artist. With guitar virtuoso Philip Vermeulen by her side, Anneli found her voice and quickly grew to an elaborate 5-piece band that is propelled forward by the energy of her powerful vocal performances.

Anneli is a music industry veteran who captivates audiences from the first notes of her music. Whether as a duo or a bigger ensemble, Anneli brings an air of soulful sophistication to any event. Her latest single, “EVE OF DESTRUCTION” in collaboration with the media publication THE DAILY MAVERICK was just released. The song is an attempt to bring awareness to climate change and you can find it here.

Flash Ikumkani

Flash Ikumkani is at the forefront of the new wave of Xhosa rappers coming out of the Eastern and Western Cape. His 2020 breakout single “Umhluzi’‘ and its subsequent remix with peers Soul T iDyan and Bravo Le Roux, is arguably one of the strongest hip-hop songs to drop in 2020, a year that was heavily clouded by Amapiano.

Flash prides himself in being “intwana yasenkeva” (loosely translated to “a guy from the rural areas”), and his lyrics often detail stories about his upbringing and everything he has been through while pursuing his dream. Flash was featured on the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher. Check out his latest project Umbono Wam (Reloaded) here.
