Native Young

South Africa

Described by the band’s creator, writer, producer and frontman Yannick, “It’s a constantly evolving tapestry of culture, emotion and melody”. Beginning as a home recording experiment for Yannick in 2015 – the live Native Young band hosts a menagerie of rotating talent across the world from Barcelona to Cape Town. Yannick’s music itself is focused on melodic emotional storytelling, raw African rhythm and the fusion of electronic and acoustic instruments – a combination which has carved out a space that’s completely his own in the musical landscape both locally and abroad for this young independent artist.
