DJ & Music Producer

Eswatini ➔ Cape Town


Uncle Waffles is one of South Africa’s most exciting young DJs. And, given how quickly she shot to stardom at home, don’t be surprised if you see her name creep its way up to the top of festival line-ups around the world.

Waffles — real name Lungelihle Zwane — was born in Eswatini. Eventually, she moved to Johannesburg and discovered amapiano: South Africa’s unique interpolation of jazz, lounge and deep house music. It’s a fun, vibey and deeply danceable genre, and Waffles has proven herself to be one of its most notable new masters.
