Tale Of Us Make Their African Debut with Bridges For Music NPO
Considered one of the hottest duos in the electronic music scene right now, Mateo and Karm, aka Tale Of Us, perform for the first time in South Africa and Africa as part of a fundraiser tour, in partnership with Bridges for Music.
Tale Of Us will perform for free at two fundraising shows one in partnership with TOY TOY (Johannesburg – AND club – 27th Feb) and Kinky Disco (Cape Town – Venue TBA – 28th Feb). The aim is to support Bridges for Music’s educational projects in townships like Langa (Cape Town), where the NPO is raising funds to build a creative school for underprivileged talent to flourish. Every ticket purchased goes towards making this dream a reality.
The duo has played at the top festivals around the world during the last year, making them currently one of the most in-demand. Proof of this is their recent Essential Mix on the world’s most respected radio program, BBC RADIO 1, hosted by Pete Tong.
Tale Of Us will be supported by a stellar line-up of local artists including Trancemicsoul, Jazzuelle, Deep Aztec, AudioJerk, Cabin Crew, Dogstar, Fabio, Killer Robot, Thibo Tazz and Black Book, all performing at both events.
Beyond the fundraising tour, a new free workshop will be announced in the townships of Langa in an attempt to bring people from different communities together through the universal language of music. Tale Of Us wants to engage in the local scene and inspire others through these conversations about music and life.
Following this past weekend’s tour with Loco Dice, Bridges for Music tours some of the hottest international artists in a pioneering way with the goal to positively impact underprivileged communities in South Africa. After Resident Advisor secured the core funding to build this school, the aim of these tours is to secure the funds to sustain the Langa School during its first years and offer sponsored studies to young upcoming artists.

About Bridges for Music.org
Bridges for Music is a non-profit organization gathering key players of the music industry to support its responsible development in developing countries, leaving a positive impact in disadvantaged communities and helping to raise global awareness about local issues through music.
We believe electronic music is a universal language that can be used to break down socio-economic boundaries. Music and artists can help bridge the extensive gap that exists between the rich and the poor as well as between different races in developing countries.
Artists today have a strong engagement with their fans and through this more are becoming opinion leaders, giving them a responsibility to raise awareness and take action on issues that need attention. Globalisation is affecting the music industry and electronic music is expanding to developing countries where we have a great opportunity and responsibility to leave a legacy.
We believe the music industry has a great power to “give back” but the result will be exponentially bigger if we all pull together in the same direction. Electronic music has become the fastest growing music genre and the most accessible, now anyone can develop their talent from any random corner in the World.
The organisation is also committed to providing life-changing experiences for disadvantaged artists by giving them the opportunity to develop their careers in the music industry. To date it has sent artists to Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), Tomorrowland (Belgium) and Glastonbury (UK) and has global Ambassadors including Richie Hawtin, Skrillex and Luciano, and a growing list of international festival partnerships.
