About Koedoe:

Rock as hard as the baked African soil, melodies as raw as JZ’s pride, beats as strong as Arno Carsten’s jaw. Born in the shade of the Tamboti tree in January 2018, while working as test subjects for an anti-tokolosh repellent (it didn’t work he has moved into their garage with his whole family), they decided that while this gig was pretty sweet, there must be more to life. So they sold their Ford Cortina, bought some instruments and started figuring out where all their picks had disappeared to. Thus came Koedoe.

Elegant, graceful and majestic are not words they would use to describe themselves but it sure looks good on paper. Hailing from the Woesrand, GP, they identify as Bushveld Rock. Influenced by Beer, Brandy, Whisky, and Amarula coffee, Koedoe provide an energetic and visually unique live performance. Most certainly aimed at those who like it hard, heavy and noisy.

Having released their demo EP: “Damn, No – EP” in May 2019, Koedoe have recently released their new Singles “Alive With You” and “Rise” on all major platforms including Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer and many more. Give them a shout. They are eager and ready to jam your venue or event. They also do Weddings and Bar Mitzvahs.
