Local rock legends Prime Circle team up with Rada Unearthed


Local rock legends, Prime Circle have teamed up with non-profit organisation Rada (an acronym for rape, alcohol, drug and abuse), and their music project, Rada Unearthed.

Prime Circle have attained multi-platinum-selling status in South Africa. They have performed all over the world and recently returned from a sold-out show in London.

The success has certainly been thrilling, but victory is not the only thing these natural-born music makers are chasing. Wanting to give back a little, they decided to work with the organisation.

Late last year, Rada Unearthed launched a compilation album featuring a bevvy of South African talent, including Prime Circle. The album’s main focus is to give up-and-coming musicians a platform to showcase their talent. Since the local rockers are not in need of additional exposure, their contribution served a different purpose – to create and boost awareness of the organisation and its music project.

The band was formed in 2000 in Witbank in Mpumalanga and since then Prime Circle has become a force to be reckoned with. They spend what little free time they have raising awareness for Rada Unearthed and, more predominantly, Rada itself.

Ross Learmoth, the lead singer of Prime Circle said, “The world is fraught with undeniable hurt and the work Rada does is invaluable. JP [Jean-Paul Nobrega, CEO and founder of Rada] and I have known each other for some time now and getting involved with his non-profit company was an easy choice. We wanted to give back to the community, not only the music community, but the community as a whole, creating a sense of hope and inspiration for future generations.

“Keep Marching On [track on compilation album] is a song about facing the obstacles that life throws our way. Finding light in the dark that surrounds us, especially in the current climate our country faces. It’s time to be brave, to give of our best and keep marching on.”
