Robin Levetan was the lead vocalist and founder of iconic SA band Bright Blue whose uniquely infectious blend of pop, rock and mbaqanga established them at the forefront of the progressive music scene in the 80’s and 90’s.
Robin’s writing extended to the theatre and his highly acclaimed counter-culture play, “Skyf” broke attendance records at The Baxter and Market Theatres. His second play “Mrs Kaplan and the Witchdoctor” was also performed at The Baxter and was later staged at various festivals in Eastern Europe by students at UCT.
After leaving Bright Blue, Robin continued to write songs and, in 2009, teamed up with producer / musician, Roger Bashew. The pair were joined by Willem Moller (guitar), Paul Tizzard (drums), Selwyn Schneider (keyboards, vocals), Tonia Selley (vocals, percussion), Shaggy Scheepers (keyboards), Buddy Wells (sax) and Jessica Levetan (vocals), together with Bright Blue band mates Ian Cohen (bass) Dan Heymann (piano) and Tom Fox (guitar).
The resulting 12 track album, “A Far Country”, was launched at the CTICC in 2011.

Music Exchange 2013 – getting down to the business of making music
Music Exchange, the two day independent conference that gets everyone in the music industry talking, is set to take place from 21-22 March 2013.
Started in 2009, the Music Exchange conference is the brainchild of industry professionals Martin Myers, a long standing music publicist through Sony Music and co-owner of Triple M Entertainment, Peter Lacey, Managing Director of Musketeer Records and SAMA Lifetime Achievement Award winner Sipho “Hotstix” Mabuse.
As a much-anticipated highlight on the Cape Town music calendar, Music Exchange brings the industry together to discuss, debate, collaborate and get down to the business of making music. Every year it offers artists, industry professionals and like-minded individuals the chance to network, exchange ideas and catch up on the latest industry trends.
Over the years Music Exchange has been able to boast a number of success stories. Collaboration between Evolver One with a Manager at the 2010 Music Exchange conference was key to the group successfully recording their third album which yielded four radio hits. For 7th Son the introduction to Stuart Rubin, former BMG Marketing Director, at the 2009 conference led them to re-record the Australian hit “The Boys Light Up”, which
went on to became their first hit.
The Music Exchange 2013 conference will present a full program of panel discussions and keynote addresses from various industry perspectives. Included in the lineup, amongst other topics, will be the profitable use of the growing number of mediums available to artists and the art of “getting your music out there”. Seasoned South African artists, producers and songwriters will head up a panel discussing “the song that made them famous”, while SA artists and composers who live abroad will talk about their careers on the international stage.
“I believe that this conference has contributed in significant ways to all of us – speakers and delegates alike – who had the privilege of attending. It left me with one of those strange feelings that I wished the entire industry was there.”
I look forward to next year’s conference with great anticipation,” said Nick Motsatse the CEO of SAMRO following last year’s conference. Since SAMRO attended the 2011 Music Exchange Conference, they have come on board to support the upcoming conference in 2013, and we would like to acknowledge them for it.
Yoel Kenan, the CEO of Africori described it as the best music conference, by far, that he has attended in Africa.
