Black Motion performs in Johannesburg.
“South Africa has 11 official languages, and each one has its own distinct sense of musicality.”Unsurprisingly, when Billboard catches up with South African dance duo Black Motion at their Johannesburg home studio, the group — comprised of Robert Mahosana and Thabo Mabogwane — tell us that they’re once again ready to bring the noise. In the middle of preparing for their Boiler Room set for Ballantine’s True Music platform — the first of three series that also includes dates in Moscow (Feb. 9) and Madrid (Mar. 9), they assured us it’s going to be another raucous affair, fueled by their trademark cocktail of live percussion, kwaito and house.
