Nakhane Toure is an openly gay, Xhosa musician from a remote corner of the Eastern Cape. His new video ‘In The Dark Room’, directed by Mark Middlewick, was filmed in a former prison cell in Constitutional Hill. The video is dramatic, deeply homo-erotic and visually claustrophobic. The vocals are haunting and soulful and the instrumental has strong African roots.
“I might be free in Jozi, but I am not free in my hometown of Alice,” commented Toure in a recent interview. His debut album, Brave Confusion, is out now.
