JAZZ ROCK INSPIRED CAPE TOWN BAND ‘BOKETTO’ RELEASE THE FIRST SINGLE ‘ ALL I WANT’ OFF THEIR DEBUT ALBUM ‘ABOUT YOU’
New on the South African musical scene, Boketto is a 5-piece band formed by singer-songwriter Callum Kuhl and guitarist David Arnot who met in high school in Johannesburg. In December 2015, after moving to Cape Town they recorded an album titled ‘About You’, a hybrid jazz, blues rock, folk, improvisation and groove-based album.
‘ABOUT YOU INCLUDES THE DEBUT SINGLE ‘ALL I WANT’
‘All I Want’ impacts Nationwide radio June 2016. It’s a song about love as a vice and an addiction. It’s a positive and negative look on a universal subject, bound together by a moody Jazz sonic landscape.
Lead Singer / Songwriter Callum’s vocals and acoustic guitar form the foundation for many of the songs alongside Dave’s melodic and improvisational approach to lead guitar. Featuring the effortless but ferocious rhythmical drive of legendary South African jazz/rock drummer Kevin Gibson and the percussive prowess of Ronan Skillen on Tabla, Udu and percussion, Boketto lends from and combines sounds and genres across the spectrum, from esoteric to pop, from traditional to modern.
The album is available through iTunes and other digital retail outlets.
