‘So love me in the dark
And it won't tear us apart.’
You may recognise these lyrics as part of the catchy chorus of Love in the Dark by Kaien Cruz and Sketchy Bongo. The song's rhythmic beats get your hips moving and the music video is so aesthetically pleasing. But what really makes the song a hit is the talented vocals of Kaien.
Born and bred in Pietermaritzburg, Kaien Cruz played a lot of sports growing up - mainly soccer and hockey. She decided that she wanted to sing professionally at age seventeen. I was lucky enough to ask her a few questions about her booming singing career and background.
Luke van Ster was mostly interested in drawing as a child and watching drawings come to life in cartoons. Now residing in Bellville, Cape Town - Luke, who goes by the stage name Denimadic, aspires to turn his hobbies of art and music into a full-time career. I caught up with this musician-in-the-making to learn a little more about him.
