ARTISTS | ORGANIC LOUNGE
Organic Lounge has been pushing musical boundaries since 2009 with their innovative approach to live music. The concept is simple: a DJ combined with a musician performing predominantly lounge music, but as the musician is led by the DJ they can perform any style of music to suit the crowd. This calls for an extremely talented musician that can improvise and sound amazing. Enter Organic Lounge.
Organic Lounge Jazz Groove combines any number of jazz musicians performing alongside a DJ playing jazzy lounge and acid jazz. Instruments to choose from include sax, trumpet, double bass, bongos and vocals.
Organic Lounge now also offers Organic Lounge Summer Chic: a female DJ and electric violin duo weaving the sounds of summer
through lounge and tropical / deep house genres. Think cocktails on a summer’s afternoon…
Organic Lounge has been a popular choice for hundreds of cocktail functions, parties, dinners, corporate and wedding receptions where a classy and contemporary background atmosphere is required without intruding on the function.
Organic Lounge performed 5 shows for the opening of the Habtoor Grand Resort and Spa in Dubai and have shared the stage with top South African DJ’s and bands (most recently Mi Casa and Euphonik). They have performed across South Africa for some of the world’s largest brands. Notable highlights include the MTN Radio awards, Telemundo International Channel launch at Movida, Africa Polo cup, Datsun GO Launch, iPhoneographySA Exhibition to name a few.
These award-winning musicians in their individual capacities have also performed and held residencies in popular venues worldwide from London to Dubai, Monaco, Bahrain, Mozambique, Mauritius, Australia, Germany and more. They have represented South Africa at a number of cultural awards and have performed at festivals including North Sea Jazz Festival, (Netherlands), New Orleans (USA), Standard Bank Joy of Jazz (South Africa), Cape Town International Jazz Festival, National Arts Festival Grahamstown and The Cape Town Jazzathon. They have also collaborated with many of South Africa’s most respected artists - Themba Mkhize, Sibongile Khumalo, Hugh Masekhela, Arno Carstens, Vusi Khumalo, Judith Siphuma, to name a few.
