Malombo

Profile:
The group is based in Mamelodi, Pretoria and led by the multi-instrumentalists Philip Tabane and Duze Mahlobo.
Malombo is one of South Africa's longest standing groups, and has helped shape and inspire the musical careers of many.
Initially operating as The Malombo Jazz Men with Abbey Cindi (flute) and Julian Bahula (percussion) in the 1960's, the group evolved to Malombo, with Tabane enlisting (and training) a succession of musicians, including Mabi Thobejane.

The current Malombo consists of Philip Tabane on guitar and vocals, Oupa Mahapi Monareng on Malombo drums, Raymond Mphunye Motau on percussion and Thabang Tabane Malombo drums and percussion.
The instrumentation is unconventional - African drums and hand percussion, interplaying with Tabane’s unique guitar, vocal, and flute sounds.
