Nibs & Guy Live in Riebeek
Having shared the stage for more than 15 years Nibs van der Spuy and Guy Buttery capture the spirit of South Africa, with its vast melting pot of influences and colour. The real magic of a Buttery/van der Spuy performance is in the moment, with a constant and spontaneous exchange of energy which transcends their individualities as two separate parts, shaping up something entirely new.
Live in Lisbon was recorded on 7 September 2019 next to the Tagus River in Belém on the outskirts of Lisbon. Speaking about the evening, Nibs commented: It had been a good while since we had played live together, but all the essential ingredients were still very much present. Neither of us were aware that everything was perfectly in place and that we were being recorded. From this intimate setting in Portugal, with a bunch of beautiful people who came from all corners to be a part of this wonderful evening, we are incredibly happy to share this recorded moment with the rest of the world.”
