Mi Casa are known for their smooth jams and doing the jika, but they’re now expanding their repertoire with a new movie about their journey.

Whose brainchild was it to make a Mi Casa movie?

It was all of ours; we work as a team. #TeamMiCasa

Tell us a bit more about the movie. Do you play characters or yourselves? Is there a storyline or is it about the band’s experiences?

Essentially it’s five music videos put together, but the music videos are not shot in the conventional way.

There is a strong narrative throughout the short film and the visuals are tackling a specific message.

I read that this movie is about racial segregation and economic inequality. Are these issues close to your heart?

It’s showcasing the beautiful story of us as South Africans and the unity we have seen over the past

20-odd years. It’s really about the fact that there are these two black dudes and a white dude going around the globe representing this country of ours and making music that speaks volumes.

Do you see yourselves doing more acting in the future?

Hahaha?...?we are musicians. But only God knows where we go. I mean, look at our lead singer J’Something, he is now a “chef”. So maybe yes, Dr Duda might become a famous actor. Haha?...

Will there be any other famous people in your movie?

Yes :)

Lastly, where will fans be able to see the movie. In cinemas or on TV?

Both. We will be releasing it in parts over the next five months?...?so part one should be out in a couple of weeks. After five months you will be able to put all the puzzles together and hopefully we can have a launch at cinemas once all five have been released.

»Mi Casa Su Casa will be released in the middle of next month. Follow the band on Twitter @MiCasaMusic for updates
