Dezeen is at Design Indaba in Cape Town all this week, for the first stop on our Dezeen and MINI World Tour. For the first year at Design Indaba, there is a music festival running alongside the main conference, which is showcasing a range of exciting South African musical talents, and we'll be choosing some of our favourites to feature on Dezeen Music Project.
