Get ready to rock your socks off with SAARKIE, the coolest cats on the Afrikaans Rock scene! For the past 18 years, this powerhouse of a band, led by the dynamic Adèle Fouché (aka the Queen of all things musical - Lead Singer, Lead Guitar, Ukulele and Harmonica), has been turning the local rock ’n roll scene upside down in both Afrikaans and English.
SAARKIE doesn't just play music; they create sonic adventures that will have you dancing on air. As an independent band they're the architects of their own musical universe, and they have the passion and stage presence to take audiences of all ages on a wild ride.
Though the dynamic of the band has changed somewhat over the years, SAARKIE loves to make use of South Africa’s best session musicians, who give the band a regular new flavour and creative ideas. Intimate, solo shows are also part of their offering.
This rock sensation has not only earned street cred but also racked up nominations at the South African Music Awards and the Ghoema Music Awards. In 2018, they clinched the Ghoema for Best Rock Album with the killer record "Queen van die Toorbos".
Fuelling their international ambitions, SAARKIE released this, their fourth album, in 2018, followed by a globe-trotting seven-week tour in 2019 that left fans in awe.
Fast forward to 2022, and SAARKIE is still claiming victories, taking home Best Live Rock Band, Best Alternative Album, Best Alternative Single, and Best Rock Single at the South African Independent Artist Music Awards.
Their album "Waar lê jou hart?" is now rocking out on all platforms, so there's no excuse not to join the SAARKIE party. Don't miss the chance to experience the magic live – catch them at one of their shows, and trust us, you won't regret it!
