Luukhanyo and The Hii Rollers will be one of our headlining acts at Up Close and Personal.
Luukhanyo is a 25-year-old R&B singer and rapper from Cape Town, South Africa, who has been making waves in the music industry with his unique style of songwriting. He is a multi-talented artist who expresses himself in a refreshingly honest manner, while maintaining a sense of familiarity that resonates with his listeners.
His most recent releases showcase his versatility as an artist with a captivating sound that effortlessly draws in his audience. His debut single, ‘FLOAT,’ which he produced, recorded and released himself (highlighting his impressive range of talents), features smooth, melodic choruses over warm yet groovy instrumentals. Luukhanyo’s laid-back flows and crooning voice add the perfect finishing touch to his beautiful songs.
Luukhanyo’s latest single, ‘Hii ROLLER,’ finds him taking on some darker subject matter whilst keeping a light tone. The funk-infused track is sure to get listeners grooving from the first note. The song reflects his current mindset of enjoying the process of experimenting with sound and making music that he loves.
With his captivating style and impressive talent, Luukhanyo is undoubtedly an artist worth keeping an eye on. His ability to effortlessly swap between between fast, rhythmical Hip-Hop and a silky vocal range leaves him in the same caliber as Anderson Paak and Bruno Mars rolled together in a one person knockout package.
At Up Close and Personal Luukhanyo will be performing with usual accomplices, the 4-piece Jazz/Soul band The Hii Rollers. The Hii Rollers are frequent collaborators with Luukhanyo, regularly supporting him at his live performances.
The group consists of Bassist Charlton Abrahams, Drummer Elton Abrahams, Guitarist Keanon Maccury, and Pianist Trulybles. The Hii Rollers blend a range of genres from Jazz, Soul, Hip-Hop, and even Rock to create a distinctive and fresh sound.
