Splashy Fen: King of the Zulu guitar to play at festival

2011-04-12 00:00

THOUSANDS of music lovers from all over the country will descend on the Southern Drakens­berg on the Easter weekend to take in some of the best music that South Africa has to offer – and the South Coast has not been left behind.

Amanzimtoti’s accomplished reggae fusion act, Manuvah To Land, have secured a slot at what will be their third consecutive Splashy Fen appearance.

The four-piece band are due to play on the Saturday night, which has historically been the festival’s main night of entertainment, at 8 pm.

“We are very happy and excited to play because we have a really good slot this time,” said the band’s guitarist Durran Trevisan.

Trevisan is joined by drummer Grant van der Linde, bassist Michael Roscoe and vocalist ­Jason Graham. All four of the members are from Warner Beach and representing the South Coast, says Trevisan, is something that the lads are very proud of.

“The music scene on the South Coast is probably stronger than it has ever been,” he said.

“We now have bands coming out of Toti that are starting to play gigs in Durban, something which hasn’t really happened before.”

For Trevisan, this will be his 11th consecutive Splashy Fen.

“I remember the first time I performed and how nervous I was,” he said.

“So it is nice to finally feel like you have paid your dues by being rewarded with a good slot.”
