Much loved Joburg-based folk musician, Steve Umculo, takes to the road this week as he announces his biggest tour to date with his ‘Tongues Out’ National Tour.
Riding off the back of his wildly successful main stage performance at Splashy Fen and the release of his latest single “Fire To My Soul”, Steve Umculo will be embarking on his biggest tour to date from June to August in 2022. The Tongues Out Tour will cover 5 provinces and 10 different venues, including an opening slot for Jeremy Loops at the prestigious Durban Botanical Gardens.
Steve’s new and improved loop set is a must-see spectacle. Developed for Splashy Fen’s acoustic stage in 2019, Steve has continued to build his set up and improve his skills to the point where this one-man-band show is a prime candidate for festival main stage slots. Looping has become very popular amongst live musicians recently, but the addition of the stand-up drum kit brings so much energy and excitement to the show. It is blatantly clear when watching his solo set that Steve’s first love is rhythm. He often appears to be doing ten different things simultaneously on stage, and yet the rhythm never breaks.
Steve’s positivity and energy are absolutely contagious and so very refreshing. His slogan, “Sing. Dance. Smile” perfectly captures what the show is all about. Steve views music as a beautiful form of communication and wants to give his audience a few minutes to just escape into a realm of happiness, fun and excitement. He claims that if he can put a smile on the face of just one audience member, his job is done.
