12 March: Spoegwolf & Lisie Basson

Spoegwolf (which translates to Spitwolf) is an award-winning Afrikaans group based in Paarl, South Africa, which emerged in the early 2010s with a melody-driven blend of driving alternative rock and thoughtful folk-pop. It became the first Afrikaans band to top the digital streaming music charts in 2019 thanks to its critically acclaimed trauma-themed concept album “Koma”.

Spoegwolf was formed in 2012 by Moskou du Toit (drums, percussion, and vocals), Chris von Wielligh (guitar and piano), Albert van der Merwe (bass and vocals), and Danie du Toit (vocals and guitar).

Since the release of the first album, “Swaartekrag”, in 2012, which included two of its biggest hits, “Lenie Blou” and “Somerset-Wes,” the band has put out a number of well-received albums, such as “Somer” (2014), “Die Donker Toring” (2017), “Koma” (2019), and “See” (2020), which was performed on tour in Europe.
