A post-modern collision of white-collar indie rock riffs, retro disco flamboyance, infectious kwela twists and a mischievous tongue-in-cheek pop art aesthetic vision, the Tutus bridge the gap between alternative and popular culture. Their influences include shades of classic South African post-punk acts, such as the Radio Rats’ rub, Boo!’s camp “monkey punk” and Dorp’s propulsive genre-blending energy. Hell, even the ghost of Johnny Clegg makes an unlikely appearance. Do not miss the launch of their brand-new album, MNUSIC.
