more than just music
Mi Casa is a live soulful dance trio out of the African continent. Their live horns, vocals and keys combined with deep soulful grooves are translating to an act that is making some noise, and it sounds good. Mi Casa has created an energy on stage like no other. Since 2010 Mi Casa have dominated charts in South Africa with a total of 8 number one singles which included their smash hit Jika and Don’t Wanna Be Your Friend both of which went multi-platinum and were the most played songs on national and continental radio platforms. The trio has hosted countless sold out shows in 31 African countries as well as in Portugal, the UK, the Netherlands, Italy, and Canada. What makes this band unique, besides the music, is their persona and values that are deeply rooted in making music that carries positive vibes and a good uplifting energy. Judging by their mind-blowing collaborations with the likes of C4 Pedro, Eddy Kenzo, Yemi Alade and Kenyan favourites, Sauti Sol, it is evident that the band is in tune with the musical pulse of Africa. 2017 saw the band going further afield to play some impressive venues in Canada, America, Portugal and The UK. During Mi Casa’s international career the guys have amassed a truly diverse fan base overseas and saw an impactful growth in their following. They are as excited to bring it all back to their roots, firmly anchored in Africa, and continue to grow and share their creative output with their adoring fans the world over. 2020 sees Mi Casa turn 10 years old and will be a massive year for the band, including the launch of a new album and a tour to celebrate their birthday..
