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.
In addition to Organic Lounge Jazz groove, Organic Lounge Summer Chic is becoming a firm favorite in South Africa. Started by experimental violinist, Naomi Tagg in the UK in 2008 she has now brought it to SA in 2017. By weaving the sounds of the electric violin through lounge and tropical house genres this duo create the ultimate summer vibe. Think cocktails on a summer’s afternoon with two lovely ladies...
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. The sounds of Organic Lounge Summer Chic have been heard on the beaches of Bahrain, the parties of Monaco and Mozambique and across South Africa.
