Last May, I was approached by Nakhane and their team to document the musician's return home after being away for several years. The South African musician, who is based in London, had returned to perform at the Bassline Fest in Johannesburg, held at the historic Constitutional Hill venue.
During my time with Nakhane, I had the opportunity to document their radio interviews and rehearsals over the course of a few days. The footage made during this time forms a part of my archive. It was an exciting experience to see Nakhane perform live after such a long time away.
