Antamerica started in 2011. Years active: 2013 – Present.
Political band from South Africa.
Current members: J. Hassim Guitar / Vocals, Dirk Cornelius Smit on Drums & Shakir G. Hoosen on Bass.
Different from other bands, namely use sonic abilities to convey a message; Not happy with the way the world is and desiring to express this disapproval with the global disorder through music.
The band name ‘Antamerica’ is a conjunction of the negation-prefix ‘ant’ as in ‘the opposite of’ and ‘America,’ the country that we most of us of the global community have identified as the bane of our very existence, i.e. the primary cause of all the woe man suffers. Make no mistake we have nothing against American culture or people, in fact most are as much victims of the oppressive system over them as the rest of the world is, especially the poor and middle classes, humanity is a brotherhood. To reiterate NOT “Anti-American” but rather against all forms of harm, mistreatment, exploitation and oppression. Be they against man, flora, fauna and possibly any other creatures.
