Da Capo brings new life to classic Phuzekhemisi hit ‘imbizo’. A powerful, and melodic re-imagining of one of Mzansi’s iconic Maskandi classics.

The internationally acclaimed producer/DJ continues to live-up to his name as he teams-up with Gallo Remixed to produce an African original remix of IMBIZO by legendary Maskandi artist – Phuzekhemisi. A blend of the African indigenous music genre, combined with tribal, ancestral vocal elements and drums, touch the soul.

The man is living up to his name as Da capo is an Italian musical term that means “from the beginning“. It is often abbreviated as D.C. The term is a directive to repeat the previous part of music, often used to save space, and thus is an easier way of saying to repeat the music from the beginning.

Da Capo, who has become an internationally acclaimed producer and DJ, has been making waves since his youthful debut into the house music scene in 2008. His distinctive sound has caught the attention of Toronto DJ producer like Nick Holder and South African internationally renowned DJ Black Coffee.  

As musicians often sing about real life experiences, daily joys, sorrows, and observations of the world, Phuzekhemisi is one of the most charismatic and powerful forces of the Maskandi genre and is known to have been the first Maskandi artist to unapologetically incorporate political commentary into his sound. Joining these forces, Da Capo and Phuzekhemisi joined is sure to transcend South African music into the social stratosphere. 

Da Capo sets to take the “IMBIZO” remix and set the traditional Zulu blues/folk sound into center of the future and dances floors across the world. The significance of this remix is a bridge builder between generations and reveals that through music people can learn more about one another’s taste for music and cultures.

In efforts to continue shaping the sound of South Africa while managing the largest catalogue of African music in the world, Gallo Remixed together with Da Capo have put a rhythmic touch on Phuzekhemisi’s “Imbizo”. This single alongside other singles, make up the Gallo Remixed – a music culture project, which intends to deliver new hits inspired by yesterday’s classics.
