About:  Hot Water | Corporate Band


Hot Water and Donovan Copley is the madman of the South African music scene for sure! His genre-bending creation, Hot Water, is a fusion of everything we love and know about being South African.

From ‘kwasa-kwasa’ to ‘sakkie-sakkie’, from folk and blues to maskanda, you know you are in the presence of the crazy and the profound – it has grown and organically evolved through a musical exploration of what it truly means to be home.

Cape Town’s Hot Water launched onto the scene in 2006, and they have since cut three critically acclaimed studio albums and played at every major music festival in the country, including Kirstenbosch Gardens Summer Concerts, Rocking the Daisies and Oppikoppi (to name a few!)

They have also performed with musical legends such as Hugh Masekela, Johnny Clegg, Mango Groove and FreshlyGround, as well as spontaneously hitting the stage with artists including Karen Zoid, David Kramer and Dizu Plaatjies.
