Listen: The Brother Moves On release new album '$/He Who Feeds You…Owns You'
The Brother Moves On is the captivating South-African performance art ensemble from Johannesburg, famous for the way the artists masterfully draw from past, present and future within music. Now, the group releases an uplifting and inspirational new album entitled '$/He Who Feeds You…Owns You' via Shabaka Hutchings' Native Rebel Recordings.
Founded by artist Nkululeko Mthembu and his brother Siyabonga Mthembu, the collective (‘the most important band in the country’, says the Guardian) continues a lineage of South African protest music. Listen to '$/He Who Feeds You…Owns You', a thrilling and thought-provoking album, echoing the rhetoric of South Africa’s liberation struggle:
