November Gypsyy is an alternative creative who believes in creating art that moves the mind, body and soul. This prevously London based artist is ready to bring a fresh alternative take on R&B into the South Aftican Industry, here’s what you need to know about this creative on the move.
“I define myself as an alternative female creative. I was inspired to become an artist by an encounter I had with another artist Tyler, The Creator. It was my inspiring conversation with him where he told me to find my wings that led me to want to become a musician.
I make music that is timeless, that moves the body as well as the soul. I’d like to think that I’m quite unique in the way I express myself and my travelling experiences through my music. I take the listener on a journey with me.
I recently started an all female youtube show with another artist, which will ne a series where we discuss topics that pertain to the black woman. The show aims to empower black women to discuss topics that they may be otherwise scared to talk about.
I’m also working on shooting a music video for a song I recorded called “Proud”. The video will be out before the end of the year. New music is also something I’m actively working on creating, alongside my new website which will feature my entire catalogue as well as a blog where I will aim to review other indie artists (performances) and exclusive content.
I think the entertainment industry needs to be more bold and support independent artists who are on the rise within the South African music scene. Corporations like the SABC need to do more to discover and expose upcoming alternative independent artists.
I would encourage upcoming artists tob keep creating. We’re not in competition with each other, we’re here to compliment each other and to express ourselves in ways that different people can appreciate. We need to keep creating new and unique content that South Africans can relate to and keep inspiring the kids.” -November Gypsyy
