Lerato Mmutle is the woman behind the Lerammoux name and concept. A true artist and confessed tortured soul, Lerammoux has traversed a long journey, dedicated to her writing dream to become a published author.
Fueled by passion and plagued with a relentless sense of responsibility to write what she envisions, Lerammoux persevered and created the work, Palesa: The Incarnations, a short story anthology that follows Palesa through all her different life forms: from child to mother to seductress and even to a terrorized bunny.
She now collaborates with the Gurulogic Band to perform her stories on stage at the Joburg Theatre in a textured and sensory one-woman theatrical show in a genre called Musical Literature. Through storytelling, performance, traditional pen ad paper as well as carefully curated collaborations, Lerammoux is a literary artist with multiple dimensions.
Mpho Matlala is the leader of the Gurulogic Band. After countless torturous years in the Financial Industry, he finally relented to his first love, music. He formed the Gurulogic Band in 2012, once having over 12 members. He finally streamlined and found a core grouping of insanely talented musicians, from singers to bassists. He vows his undying adoration to his Rhodes piano and is also well-versed in the art of production.
Guru, as his band members know him, is an artist with a gifted ear for sound. Having met Lerammoux 8 years ago, this is the first collaboration together for her literary production. The alliance has stretched the boundaries of his musical horizon to a more interactive dance between literature and chords. The band has two jazz albums to their name Rainy Thursday and Time Traveller.
