As a group, Die Antwoord challenge both visually and sonically accepted perceptions of what is considered beautiful music. Yolandi Vissir, Ninja, and their DJ, DJ Hi-Tek all hail from South Africa, and incorporate much of the South African hip-hop scene into their very singular rap-rave sound and vibe. Driven heavily by shock value, Die Antwoord will undoubtedly put on a show that is reminiscent of their overall vibe, and their live performance will quite literally vibrate with all their one-of-a-kind passion and amazement.
