Hear Garde at The Raptor Room Cape Town

Durban-based R’nB musician Garde makes his first showing in Cape Town. Siphesihle Garde Siswana stages his Appreciation Tour, which is part of intimate live music events promoting his debut single.

The Appreciation Tour sees the artist performing at venues in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban.

The song Appreciation features singer Yanga Yaya, and is themed around the appreciation of a lover or significant other. The song is a fusion of Afrobeat, neo-soul, pop and R’nB. It gave birth to his neo-drum sound.

The Cape Town leg of the Garde Appreciation Tour at The Raptor Room also features Yanga Yaya and a Theron DJ set.
