NOMANDLA presents YoungstaCPT from South Africa on his first Australian Tour!

Come and enjoy an early Sunday SILY Session located in the heart of the Sydney CBD in a heritage-listed storehouse, SILY pairs a welcoming relaxed feel with old-school decadence and charm. The sweeping carriageway, airy industrial courtyard, reclaimed wooden bar and candlelit milieu conveys the essence of the speakeasies of yesteryear. This sexy 1920's feel is offset by a thoroughly modern approach, upbeat service and funk/soul soundtrack, which allows the bar to maintain a level of nostalgia without feeling uptight.

With 27 mixtapes and numerous EPs and accolades under his belt, YoungstaCPT is regarded as one of the most important South African emcees of his generation. Describing his sound as "Kaapstad" you don't want to miss his first Australian Tour.
"If you have ever been to Cape Town you can listen to any one of my CDs and you will understand me and the place I grew up in...I am like your unofficial tour guide.

I am not going to take you to Table Mountain with a cable car, but I will take you via another angle... a side that you have never been to before. I'll give you the other view and perspective of where I am from.

To have so much content around you all the time while growing up in Cape Town, as a result my style is different, my tone is different because the slang that we use is different... I don't sound like any other rapper.

There is a distinct sound that separates me from the rest and I use that to my advantage...that fact that I am a coloured guy from Cape Town.

I use the knowledge that I have acquired over the years, whether it's from the streets or from my family and friends, I incorporate it in my music. I have songs about takkies, how we dress and how we speak.

I am not here to sound like everybody else of to make normal songs... that is not what I am here for."

"For us as the Y?GEN to be traveling to Australia and making my 1st appearance there as a artist is a dream come true. I'm excited to share my music and my culture with the locals and learn as much from the trip as I can. It's a opportunity for me to spread the Cape Town stories and make crowds aware of my people."

Capacity is VERY limited and your ticket gets you access to the famous SILY antipasti table, and drink specials.

Joining YoungstaCPT will be Jannah Beth and Vincent Segami
