Black Water is an exciting new addition to the South African Blues scene. Formed in 2015, this talented trio features established musicians/music veterans Martin Botha (vocals and lead guitar), Hannes van Wyk (bass guitar) and Bennie Pretorius (drums).

Playing their own passionate and recognizable style makes their music stands out as fresh, thrilling and relevant in today’s music arena.
