devonecia + wilken

Vocalist Devonecia Swartz and multi-instrumentalist Wilken Calitz, is a Cape Town based duo with an afro-acoustic pop sound.

Devonecia Swartz is a choir singer at heart, but there is nothing she can’t do. If she’s not in front of the microphone she is still on stage, but as an actress. Most recently she won the 2019 KKNK Kanna Award for Best Upcoming Artist. She’s a fan of jazz music, choral singing and the colour yellow.

Wilken Calitz specializes in acoustic guitar and violin. 

He is known for his versatile styles; from founding member of the satirical Afrikaans duo Die Skynmaagde, to Fleur du Cap Theatre Award nomination for Best Original Soundtrack for his  African-Avantgarde music for the production Kristalvlakte. 

His participation as soloist on internationally released feature films include: Die Wonderwerker, Skoonheid and Dis ek, Anna. His début solo, all original instrumental album Chromatique was launched in October 2017 and most recently he composed the soundtrack for Honger, currently showing on VIA TV.
