The Springbok Nude Girls Documentary Now Available on DVD30 Nov 2016
Through a series of serendipitous events in the early 90’s in the small wine making town of Stellenbosch, Arno Carstens, Theo Crous, Adriaan Brand, Arno Blumer and Francois Kruger became The Springbok Nude Girls.
Little did they know that they would go on to become one of the most loved rock bands South Africa has ever seen, known for their high energy stage antics and unique musical sound which combines Punk, Reggae, Scat, Metal, Funk and Jazz.
They played their first gig in September 1994 in a small bar in Stellenbosch. Since then, the platinum selling, award winning band have gone on to record albums that contain some of our countries most beloved anthems. They have headlined every major South African music festival, and performed at some of the most auspicious international festivals in Europe.
In 2015, Thinking Owl Films, in association with Sony Music Entertainment Africa, released an exciting documentary film which tells the story of the band’s early beginnings, touching on the crippling censorship of that time, and then the liberation of 1994 and how, for these kids, there was finally freedom in music.
The Springbok Nude Girls continue to perform live shows annually, both locally and internationally and are set to record and tour a new album in 2017
