LABANTU JAZZ BAND
WITHOUT any doubt, our country is really blessed when it comes to musical talent.
Labantu is another jazz band that has a variety of brilliant songs in its new album, Ngobani Na Labantu.
The band, made up of four members, is definitely going places. These talented artists double as instrument players and vocalists, and the arrangement of their indigenous songs is superb.
The top song, Nkutswetse, has been keeping jazz music lovers at the popular East Comes Alive Jazz Session on the dance floor – taking it nice and slow.
Another hit, Sonqoba, poses a question to South Africans regarding unity and peace.
Saxophone player Moses displays his creativity in Ntshware. His melodies connect well with the vocals of the other band members throughout the song.
Other hot tunes to listen to are Some Days, Babazala, Lesola Nkaile and the bonus track, Ya Tshwanang Le Jesu. – BONGANI MDAKANE
