Skinny Pelembe is a multi-talented Johannesburg-born, Doncaster-raised artist who defies categorization with his unique musical blend. Championed by Gilles Peterson’s Future Bubblers program, his self-released EP ‘Seven Year Curse’ and signing to Gilles’ Brownswood Recordings established his presence. His debut album garnered acclaim from The Guardian, Line of Best Fit, ID, and Brooklyn Vegan. BBC 6 Music’s A-List featured his singles, while BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens endorsed his music. With collaborations including Massive Attack, James Lavelle, and Madlib, Skinny Pelembe’s eclectic journey from Mozambique to Northern England shapes his transparent lyrics and harmonies, evoking the essence of musical legends. With all that support and endorsment, we cannot wait to welcome him to Sŵn this year.
