Jo’burg based outfit The Brother Moves On aren’t easy to sum up. Self-described as a “collaborative piece of performance art in the form of a band,” the group is often labeled by SA writers as ‘afro space folk funk,’ live in their own hybrid realm, compounding their formula from a vast number of genres and ideas in search of a sound with which to describe post-apartheid South Africa.

For this installment of Africa In Your Earbuds, The Brother Moves On offer a dense mix featuring tracks/reworkings from an ecletic cast: Tumi and The Volume, Animal Collective, Just A Band, Gil Scott-Heron and Kay Ara and an introduction that pairs audio from Neil Armstrong‘s moon landing with H.F. Verwoed speaking on apartheid.
