Serati

Bio

Serati is a singer-songwriter, stage performer, poet, writer, and cultural activist from Johannesburg South Africa. Her music is an ever-evolving brew of all of her influences ranging from the story-telling acoustic guitar based folk music, to the diverse styles of the African continent. Having lived on three continents (US, UK, and Africa) and through her travels across southern Africa, Serati has a wide pallet from which she draws inspiration and content for her music and writing.

Her first recorded song ''Hurt So Good'' was release in original and remix version, the former as part of the Castle Milkstout Unplugged Talent Search, and the latter features Gino Brown as a house remix. ''Why Do You Tempt Me'' is Serati's second remix and it was produced in Tanzania by B'Hitz, the song was released in 2018 in song and video, and debuted on radio stations in Italy, France, Cameroon, and Tanzania. In March 2018 Serati released her first EP album called ''Rapture'', which includes productions from Tanzanian studio masters C9 Kanjenje and Innocent Mujwahuki. The release was followed by an east Africa tour where Serati performed at popular venues such as Red Monkey's Crazy Monday, Coffee House Sessions, Slow Leopard and more in Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar, and Watamu in Kenya. In 2018 an EP of house remixes of her single ''Why Do You Tempt Me'' was released with works of producers from USA, Nigeria, Italy and Spain.

Serati has lived, performed in and collaborated with artists from Tanzania, Kenya, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Cuba, Brazil and South Africa; it is these travels that in-spired her interest in indigenous African instruments, and the desire to infuse them into her music while presenting them in a contemporary fashion.
