AKKEDIS RELEASE "ONDER OU TAFELBERG"



After 20 years as one of the most iconic bands in South African rock ‘n roll, Akkedis are releasing their 6th album, Onder Ou Tafelberg.

This album has been 7 years in the making and encompasses an array of styles and subject matters to represent the wide variety of fans the band have gathered through the years. SAMA-award winning producer, Peter Pearlson, skilfully captures their complex sound; from African inspired rhythms to gritty rock ‘n roll and back to acoustic melodies. Akkedis did not hold back, and let their ingenuity run wild.

“We took our time with this album and made sure that creatively it represented everything we have been crafting in the past 20 years.”

-Arthur Dennis

The title , Onder ou Tafelberg, pays homage to those who forged their lives in the streets of District 6 and can be heard in the first single from the album, Musiek van Hanover Straat.

The album artwork was hand drawn by drummer, Rudolph Dennis.
