Group Director, Siphiwe Sibiya, told The Zimbabwean that when they toured, they would be flying the country’s flag high.

“We are currently working on a European tour set to start at the end of November. It is a great honour to represent our continent. We have been working hard and we need the support of our countrymen to make this tour a success,” said Sibiya.

Founded at the beginning of 2010, the group is yet to release an album but it toured Germany in January 2012 and performed in an international festival in Rome in March 2012.

The group consists of five members: Pardon Charandurah, Farai Machingambi (both Zimbabweans), Richard Ngoveni (Botswana), Flabbour Halt and Nhlanhla (South African).

“We play home-brewed sounds and use indigenous instruments. You don’t need to play modern instruments to excel,” added Sibiya.
