FAKA is the Zulu term for “penetration” and “occupation”. With that self-evident innuendo in mind, the South African artist duo of Desire Marea and Fela Gucci pioneer a highly innovative branch of gqom, modern hip hop, gospel and traditional African rhythms. In their home country, FAKA hosts its own club night, Cunty Power, a safe haven in which queer culture and modern spirituality are further explored. Meanwhile, FAKA continue to infiltrate mainstream culture and major festivals with their explosive and passionate live shows.
