2014-09-27 19:00

Tumi Molekane, of Tumi and The Volume fame,has just got back from a 3 week tour across Europe and the man is already planning his next international gig- at the world famous Apollo Theatre in New York.

The theater, which is known for show casing some of the best African-American performers in the world, pulls in an estimated 1.3 million people every year. It will welcome our boy Tumi on the 11th of October.

It will be Tumi's first ever performance in the USA - what a way to make a debut!

"To be performing at The Apollo Theater as my first show in America is crazy. This has been the cultural hub of the black diaspora for decades. I am honored and excited." Says Tumi

He's promised to play some tracks from his upcoming album Return Of The King, which should drop around the same time as his Apollo performance, and will be joined on stage by other local musical legends The Soil and Simphiwe Dana.

The show will be hosted by Bra Hugh Masekela.

It's like a SA take over of New York!
