Grammy nominated alternative R&B duo The Foreign Exchange are about to embark on their biggest tour to date.
The Foreign Exchange are promoting their fourth studio album, Love In Flying Colors, which was released in September 2013.
The four-continent tour marks the group’s début performances in South Africa and South America.
In South Africa, the duo will performa at Bassline in Johannesburg this Friday.
The Foreign Exchange started when Little Brother rapper Phonte heard a beat on Okayplayer.com by Dutch producer Nicolay and asked if he could lay some vocals over it.
Nicolay agreed, and the song Light It Up appeared shortly after as the B-side to Little Brother’s 2002 single Whatever You Say.
The Foreign Exchange’s first single off their second album Leave It All Behind, Daykeeper, was nominated for a 2010 Grammy award in the category of best urban/alternative performance.
Where: Bassline, Newtown
When: Friday May 30, 8pm to 2am
Info: Pre-sold tickets are R270, and R300 at the door.
