FAKA- AMAQHAWE

FAKA aka Fela Gucci and Desire Marea, has come to represent more than the “performance art duo”. The artists unveil their EP titled “AMAQHAWE“.

The artists explore a combination of mediums ranging from sound, live performance, literature, video and photography, to create an eclectic aesthetic with which they express their ideas about themes central to their experience as black queer bodies navigating the cis-hetero-topia of post-colonial Africa.

The EP explores the intricacies of love and romance within the black queer experience, with songs touching on everything from self-love, unrequited love, childhood love and transactional love. Nuances of the socio-political realities that (re) construct the expression of love are woven into the lyrical prowess that glides effortlessly over the drum-heavy soundscapes that define the genre of Gqom.
