"Having successfully presented his sounds to a wide range of audiences all over the World, Elemotho aims to take his old and new sounds even further. With his powerful performance he assures that you embark on a journey: “that musically invokes the spirit of the Kalahari” (Uganda Daily Monitor, Uganda).
“A smile that never leaves your face and a dose of inspired and generous music” ( toutelaculture, France).
“There is one name that stands above the rest when it comes to African contemporary music in Namibia, and that name undoubtedly is Elemotho” (New Era, Namibia).
“An inspiring craftsman that makes you want to smile, cry and dance all at once – his songs stir your mind, charm your spirit and explore the intensity of the human spirit” (Confidente, Namibia).
“Elemotho…the roaming bushman with diverse yet deep songs that give food for thought, this winner of the 2012 RFI-France 24 Discoveries awards, has been building a reputation beyond the borders of his homeland Namibia for several years” ( RFI, France).
