DJ producer Sona will take his position on the Savaya stage for the first time this weekend. He’s not just the next big thing in Afro sounds coming out of South Africa, but he is also bringing some hefty lineage with him, being the son of one of the men that helped make afro-house music what it is today, Black Coffee.
Prepare to immerse yourself in afro-infused music as SONA plays his distinctive set at Savaya this Sunday.
SONA has achieved explosive success in a remarkably short time, captivating audiences with his unique sound and undeniable talent.
Asked in an interview recently if having his famous father in the background had helped his fast moving career in electronic music, the 23 year old stated that, “Yes, of course, my father has been there with me from the beginning helping and teaching me all along the way.”
He kept his musical journey private for a long time because of the pressures involved with having a world-famous DJ father, but that didn’t stopped the young Esona Tyolo, or SONA, from making music – something he’s been passionate about for years.
With a rapidly growing fan base and a string of festival appearances and performances at renowned venues worldwide this year, including Tomorrowland, Voodoo Village, Hii Ibiza, Blu Marlin, London, Paris, and so many other places, SONA’s presence in the music industry has become impossible to ignore.
Releasing a track with Drake to great acclaim last year surely didn’t hurt his progress, too. Yes indeed, if you have the connections why wouldn’t you use them?
So, this Sunday is your chance to catch a bit of history in the making as Sona takes to the Savaya decks for the first time, just like his father many times before him, ready to take on the electronic music world in his own right.
