This fundraiser aims to raise funds for Aid4Aid (Aid4Animals in Distress) who operate in the Southern Suburbs – a group of animal lovers wanting to help & make a difference to local animals in need. They desperately need to raise funds to cover the monthly vets bills. What started as a Whatsapp group in 2015, is now a fully-fledged NPO, who continue to learn and grow from strength to strength and have successfully rescued, rehabilitated and re-homed over 1500 animals including wildlife animals since they began. Aid4Aid is totally reliant on all funds raised to keep their organisation afloat and every cent goes back into helping animals in need.
Gaëllou is a truly one-of-a-kind, South African singer/songwriter/multi instrumentalist/visual artist. Although (fittingly) small in stature Gaëllou’s songs are massive. They tell stories through the music, based on her own experiences and the content of her poetry. Crunchy and thought-provoking her lyrics paint a picture of her life-long struggles with abuse and addiction and deal with them head-on, through discovery, hope and the promise of new beginnings. Her aim is to give a voice and inspiration to others who have suffered similar battles.
The band has performed at some of the finest South African music venues. Gaëllou is also a regular on South African radio stations where the songs are played throughout the year.
Backing Gaëllou in her band are well known local musicians, Willem Moller on guitars, Kathleen Eggers on strings and Derek Craig on percussion and drums. Gaëllou perform powerful acoustic and electric arrangements of their unique ‘folk-rock’ musical sound.
