Interview with La Vuvuzela

By Jordan Scott

I was lucky enough to get to chat to the girls of La Vuvuzela as well as Axene who had collaborated with them.
Of course the first thing I had to ask was why La Vuvuzela for a name? It was interesting to learn that the band began to form around the world cup and that vuvuzela was such a widely used word in South Africa that it just worked for them. Sam also said that if you type vuvuzela into Google they come up in the search too. (Bonus!) 

The band consists of Tarryn who is the lead singer, Sam who is one of the dancers and Tamsyn who is also a dancer. I had a good laugh when I found out that they all actually met on Gumtree. They also said that so much has been done revolving around the computer. (I’m taking technology far more seriously from now on.) The girls find that this is what differentiates themselves from every other emerging artist and group in South Africa. They spend a lot of time hanging out as friends, including Axene, a lot of time is spent rehearsing and working so it’ll normally be a braai or something small. They laughed and said they do, however, end up at Limnos bakery quite often. 

If you were at K-day you would’ve seen the outstanding costumes that the girls were wearing, believe it or not they are all hand made by the band themselves. A handy tip from Tarryn – “If you have a glue gun about, keep it because you can use it for everything.”  However, if you missed them at K-day, they will be performing at the Cape Town stadium this week and in Joburg on Wednesday. There were others to but they couldn’t tell me specifically, which is understandable considering their hectic schedules. It is due to all this work that what each one of the girls misses the most is home... and of course a home cooked meal. 

So on a final word from the girls, their new official CD is out its called La Vuvuzela.com. (Because they used the computer so much and it’s catchy.) Oh and they said Top Billing rocks!!!! And I’m not making that up.
