They draw musical influence from rich traditional African elements with a base drawn from Western advanced harmonies. A vibrant outfit full of rhythmic complexities and melodies with a program that includes mainly original music composed by the band. Other material includes renditions of African standards celebrating some of the great musicians of South Africa as well as arrangements of popular covers from around the world. The goal is to educate both musicians from South Africa as well as those from abroad about our diverse culture through music yet keeping.
