Heritage Month with Klipdrift Brandy

The month of September in South Africa marks the celebration of our different heritages. It is a time for the country to celebrate through music, art, our historical inheritance, our different languages and delicious food.

Gwijo Squad partnered with Klipdrift Brandy to express themselves through igwijo. It has been a harmonious collaboration.

Behind-the-scenes

Our studio was booked and we had a few willing members who had put up their hands and had a few hours to spare into putting together the project with Klipdrift Brandy.
Happy faces arrived at the studio in time to get a summary of how the afternoon would roll-out.
Voices were warmed up and it was time to take to the microphones in the soundproofed room, with the sound engineer taking full control.
Our camera operator was able to take some great shots of the team in action.
It was a wrap once all the vocals were laid down and the team was happy with the work done over the hours.

The final production
