Ottoman Slap Concert

Ottoman Slap will heal your wounds, allay your sorrows and increase your joy as
they administer weird and wonderful music, originating in the soul of folk
musicians and travellers to and from many countries, be it Eastern Europe,
Andalusian Spain, Algeria or, yes, the Cape… and made it their own… They haven’t

"With a range of eclectic sounds, exotic instruments and foreign genres fused into
one unique flavour, Ottoman Slap is a 6-man world-music collective unlike any
other band in South Africa and their debut album Idiomatic is testament to that."
