Taxijam – Laurie Levine & Lisa V [VIDEO]

taxijam

Taxijam is an Internet mixed tape.  Filmed here in the Mother City – it is a collection of unedited live performances in the back of a taxicab with local talent. They provide a selection of some of South Africa’s finest creative talent performing in an intimate 5-minute taxi ride.  All clips are recorded and shot in exactly the same style, in one take and uploaded to their website.  Each and every performance is entirely democratic; there are no expensive stages or creative lighting, which makes it possible for viewers watch multiple musicians in exactly the same context.  Check out their website to view a variety of different artists.  It’s the smallest gig around!
