7Seven Sounds took place in Maboneng Precinct this past weekend, following Project Maboneng, which took place earlier this year. True to its name, it brought 7 different sounds by bringing 7 acts from different genres and styles of music, which included Arno Carstens, Go Barefoot, Toya Delazy, Moonchild, Dave Bandains, Yo Grapes and the Urban Village.
It was really refreshing to attend a concert that didn’t focus on 1 or 2 commercially popular genres of music at the moment but a concert that was about true music exploration. There was great emphasis on making sure the sound came out perfect, whether it was vocals, mixers and CDJs or live instruments, the sound didn’t disappoint at all and was always on point. I would give credit to George Avakian, for making sure of this, having being an artist himself but now more involved in the background.
You could have attended with a partner or gone as a family, as the scenery was perfect for both occasions. There were slides, the seating was cosy and relaxed for couples to enjoy, the weather was good, the music wasn’t too loud, you could purchase some goodies and the food stalls were open, so you could grab a bite anytime,
I would definitely recommend this place (as a venue on its own) to visit but also, if you really love music (like I think you do) and enjoy new sounds – definitely check out 7Seven Sounds. I look forward to their next event, its promises to bring growth in music industry and expose us to new sounds.
Have to say thank you to Melanie Ramjee aka Hypress for the invite, I had a good time.
