Tutu Puoane – iLanga


We are very proud to announce the release of Tutu’s brand new album iLanga.  ‘iLanga’ means ‘sun’ in Zulu, one of the official languages of Tutu’s home country South Africa.  It is our biggest production so far, with cooperation of a lot of different people, including some good friends in South Africa.  The album will be presented with a release tour, starting at De Roma in Borgerhout on October 2 2014.  Check the events-section for all the dates!  Info on where to get yourself, your husband, your wife, your girlfriend, boyfriend, son, daughter, mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, auntie, uncle, friend, collegue(s) … a copy will follow soon!  The best is of course a signed copy, after one of the gigs… 🙂
