After producing eight albums and selling over 10 million records, British trip hop and alternative rock act Morcheeba set off on a world tour ahead of their forthcoming album.
Along with performances in Europe, Australia and the U.S.A., they have announced their first performance at “the most beautiful garden in Africa”, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, in Cape Town on April 6th.
Originally made up of singer Skye Edwards, and brothers, Ross and Paul Godfrey, the band came together in 1995 and released their first album Who Can You Trust? the following year, reaching silver status in the U.K.
But it was their second album, The Big Calm, that sent the trio to superstardom, reaching platinum certification in France and the U.K., and gold in Canada, beginning an illustrious music career for Morcheeba.
They went on to release two more albums, Fragments of Freedom and Charango, before spiltting in 2003 due to creative differences. The brothers eventually reunited two years later, producing two more albums before Edwards returned in 2010.
Paul Godfrey then resigned from the band in 2014, but Skye and Ross continued to perform as Morcheeba, and as their own project, Skye & Ross Trio.
