«This is extraordinary music» Gilles Peterson (BBC 6Music)
An explosive collaboration of two trailblazers from South Africa’s avant-garde, Sibusile Xaba and Thabang Tabane sit firmly at the helm of a new wave of cutting edge South African roots music.
Their collaboration coalesces both geographic and spiritual influences, ranging from Maskandi (a music style dominant in Xaba’s native KwaZulu-Natal), the improvisational culture of South Africa's jazz avant garde and the malombo music Thabang’s father – the legendary Dr Philip Tabane – originated in the early 1960s. Collectively, they remold these influences, situating them within rhythms that span the African continent.
