Dala Botha aka Datsolalee is a South African designer, at this stage working at an advertising & design agency. Growing up in a small town, she was interested in music and art – yet music always was her first priority. After finishing highschool she started studying marketing and business communication, majoring in graphic design.
“This is my 5th year working in the typical agency environment – though I’ve freelanced and taken off time for the music as well but these days I enjoy expressing myself more in my design than my music”.

As you can see, Datsolalee loves to design for Coca-Cola. “At a former agency Coke was one of our clients and we always could go wild with our designs”.

6 Pack of Coca-Cola + 12 Top Hits = 50’s Fun

Great 33rpm record sleeve from the roaring fifties, the era that gave birth to rock and roll.

The fifties saw a great change in popular tunes. From the Easy Listening and Big Band era, the musical taste moved to Doo Wop. With hits like “Hound Dog”, “Don’t be Cruel” and “Love Me Tender”, Elvis lit up the scene. Rock and roll was more than just music, it quickly became a way of life.
Teenagers came forth with new ways of “dirty dancing” – the Jitterbug, Limbo & Twist. The popular fashion for girls was poodle skirts & cardigans and jeans, checked/striped shirts or T-shirts for the boys. Guys greased their hair, girls wore ponytails and bangs. Hula Hoops and Yo-Yo’s were the craze of the day.
Unmissable ingredients to get the party started were a portable turntable with a bunch of the lastest hit records, and some sixpacks of Coca-Cola bottles to share with your friends.

12 Top Hits (1958) featuring Volare (Domenico Modugno), Little Star (The Elegants), Poor Little Fool (Ricky Nelson), Bird Dog (The Everly Brothers), …

On different stages, you can see the stars from now & tomorrow: rock, pop, dance – contemporary, progressive or alternative.
