Over the last two years, the Bantwanas Kollektiv have been performing at some of the tops festivals in the country, bringing its unique blend of live instruments, percussion world-class production to heaving dancefloors.
Alongside Blanka Mazimela, the brainchild of Crazy White Boy’s Ryan Murgatroyd has become a spectacle to behold. And after the immense success of 2018’s “Ngithanda” with Samthing Soweto, the band returns with its second release titled “Ngoma”.
Bantwanas return with their sonic tone; the coupling of traditional African notes and vocals with dance music beats and basslines. “Ngoma” delivers rolling African drums that blend fluidly with the harmonic chorus while the driving hypnotic beat and buoyant melodic bassline demonstrate the signature of Ryan Murgatroyd.
The release is rounded out with magnificent support by the local force of nature Aero Manyelo and production genius Kostakis.
“Ngoma” is available now on Beatport.
