Teno Afrika

DJ – Johannesburg, ZA

Teno Afrika’s 2020 debut Amapiano Selections drew an international wave of support sparked by the producer’s deftly minimal take on the emergent style. Amapiano combines the South African predilection for deep house alongside a melange of endemic influences like kwaito, jazz and gqom. The 22-year-old’s new crop of songs Where You Are expands on his rhythmic subtlety hooded in warm bass adorned by amapiano’s telltale shakers, hi-hats and mid-tempo shuffle. 

Lutendo Raduvha hails from Pretoria, South Africa, where he produces music incessantly and DJ’s parties around Gauteng province. He hangs with a crowd of musical friends, many of whom join him on Where You Are. For his second album Teno Afrika brings more vocalists into the sonic picture, unlocking an emotive and timbral escalation to his rapidly mushrooming catalog of work.

He recently began DJing outside South Africa, with his first overseas performance in Tokyo last fall drawing rave reviews. Teno Afrika plans to visit Europe and the UK for his first shows in Spring and Summer 2022. His sets focus on the range of amapiano-oriented sounds coming from Pretoria and Joburg at the moment. He’s currently exploring what he calls tech-amapiano and will soon unveil mixes featuring his new works along those lines.
