Leonard de Muralt and Simon Acevedo

South Africa | Music

February 2017 — Music

February 2017
Leonard de Muralt and Acevedo are ChâteauGhetto and will be in SA in February to work towards their second album.

They will be collaborating with Johannesburg based artists such as Gilles Furtwangler (CH) and Robert Machiri (Zim), among others.

Simon is currently doing a master’s and his thesis is about appropriation, diaspora and globalisation in the postcolonial Caribbean vernacular music contexts, and musically his work is characterised by collaboration and shocks. Léonard ‘s artistic practice, on the other hand questions the artisanal and vernacular products of the Helvetic landscape and folklore.

The duo aims to explore the multiplicity of music in Johannesburg, test the possible frictions, particularly through music and writing and to develop an artistic project somewhere between music and documentary.
