"CODA is just so hot right now... You simply cannot think about having a party without at least trying to sign them up for the evening''s entertainment... CODA is the city''s most in-demand band," Bianca Coleman, Cape Argus
Widely loved for their vibrant live performances, CODA is ranks as one of the hottest bands in South Africa at the moment. Their Afro-fusion sound is classy, refreshing and uplifting and is a rich blend of warm vocals, electric strings, saxophone, hypnotizing beats and a few other surprises, all brought together with a distinctly South African flavour.
CODA has entertained some of the country''s most eminent celebrities, business people and politicians, and their music has been known to get some of South Africa''s leading figures on the dance floor. CODA performed at FW de Klerk''s 70th birthday and was personally requested by Desmond Tutu to perform at his 75th birthday event.
CODA''s diversity has resulted in a new style of South African music that appeals to audiences from Soweto to Paarl, from Gugulethu to Bloemfontein and from Dubai to the Seychelles.
The African Renaissance CD:
CODA’s latest offering the skill and talent of the performers and draws on influences of several dance-orientated styles and elements of music including Electro, House and Kwaito, combined with elements of Classical and Afro-Jazz. The latest CD is a very worthy - perhaps vital - addition to any CD collection of South African music.
African Renaissance is a feel-good urban-pop offering that cements CODA''s signature fusion sound and takes the band to a new level. African Renaissance is an immaculately produced and presented album, colourful in both appearance and in spirit - the perfect showcase of the philosophy and character that CODA has been building since their inception.
With song names like Reach Out, Stand Together, Take Care and To Be African, and as the album name implies, CODA is all about positive newness in Africa - it''s about being reawakened to the spirit of Africa, and about adopting an attitude that is as upbeat and full of energy as CODA’s sound.
The first offering from this groundbreaking new album - the single entitled It''s Still The Music was an instant success around South Africa. Since October 2008, CODA’s new single ‘It’s Still the Music’ is rocking the airwaves across the nation on stations such as KFM, Good Hope FM, Heart 104.9, 5 FM, Highveld, ECR etc .
The CODA performance:
CODA is the one band that simply ‘has it all’ when it comes to their live performance – with a stylish combination of instruments (electrifying strings, cool jazz sax and hot house DJ), a sensational lead vocalist and some seriously ‘party igniting’ songs, there’s something for everyone. One CODA client sums it up:
‘CODA are "SA''s hottest Fusion Band" - they really went down superbly - my clients are still raving about them. The band is made up of 4 beautiful girls (violin, vocalist, cello and sax) and a gorgeous male DJ. The instruments are electric so it has a classical feel but super vibed up. They have an incredible stage presence and know how to work the crowd! They play all originals and it is so different to anything I have heard before- which makes them even more "out of the ordinary". Great for a background vibe or to get the party started’ Candice Nethercott, Investec
