Cape Town with Music Duo, Stiff PapStiff Pap
Cape Town is a majority black, multicultural space, brimming with culture. The compact city centre, hemmed in by the harbour and the curve of Table Mountain and pristine beaches, is almost entirely walkable.
Local electronic duo Stiff Pap, share their favourite spots across the city. The pair are stepping out with their own unique sound as they fuse kwaito, gqom and hip hop. Stiff Pap are at the forefront of African electronic music innovation, mixing a progressive global electronic sound with localised African lyrics and rhythms. Making a name for themselves locally, they have opened for international artists such as Slowthai and Vince Staples as well as headlining Boiler Room Johannesburg in 2019. Leading the way in an alternative music scene, they have managed to stay independent whilst staying true to their message of uncompromising self-expression.
From nightlife to places to hike, explore the mother city through their eyes.
