Texx and the City is run by journalist and editor Tecla Ciolfi. Tecla has been apart of the music industry in South Africa for the last 10 years in various capacities, namely journalism, radio presenting, event curation and artist management.
After building a portfolio writing for various SA publications, Tecla spent two years editing local music magazine Your LMG and hosting two successful events over the course of three years (Tuesdays On Fire in Cape Town and Jozi On Fire in Johannesburg), before taking up the position of editor and marketing manager at Deezer in South Africa which she held for four years.
