When asked how he would describe Native Young - creator of the project Yannick Wilde says, “It’s a constantly evolving tapestry of culture, emotion and melody”.
Beginning in Cape Town as a home recording experiment for Yannick - Native Young has transformed into a live collective of rotating talent across Africa and Europe. A fusion of anthemic uplifting vocals, indie electronica and raw African rhythm - their live show is nothing short of spectacular. Recent accolades include over 1M streams on Spotify for 2018, A SAMA (South African Music Award) for 'Best Alternative Album' with 'Kings', smash single 'Erase' coming in at #1 on the 5fm dance charts and playing stand out sets at international festivals Fusion (Germany) and Lake of Stars (Malawi).
Music is that ephemeral expression that seems to connect us all and It’s this sentiment that boldly shines in the raw and colourful tale of Native Young.
