HOT WATER

18 April 2017

It’s impossible to listen to Hot Water. To just listen. Because when Donovan Copley, the band’s founder, frontman, and creative heart, starts singing, playing (often his iconic Afri-can guitar), jiving and jumping around stage, backed up by a mix of stellar South African musicians as diverse as the country itself, you can’t sit still… No one does. The music – ‘South African Folk-Rock,’ Copley calls it – layers the sounds of traditional mbaqanga, kwela and maskanda with a more contemporary folk-rock vibe and utterly danceable rhythms, woven through with Copley’s raw, sweet voice and inspiring, almost dreamlike lyrics…Songs about ‘going home’ – whether to a place, a person, a community, or to yourself.Hot Water’s deeply rooted in South Africa, but its appeal is universal. As are Copley’s musical intentions… ‘My aim is to create awesome entertainment that – rather than playing into and feeding off people’s fears and pain – instead creates upliftment, magic and miracles.’
