Malombo

NTS default image

Malombo

Malombo has been played on NTS in shows including Dark & Lovely Global Roots w/ Thristian, featured first on 22 November 2014. Songs played include Mashaba, Bird Meets Elephant and Maskanta.

Initially operating as The Malombo Jazzmen with multi-instrumentalist Philip Tabane, Abe 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 Mabe Thobejane, and more recently, Raymond Motau and Oupa Monareng. The instrumentation is unconventional - African drums and hand percussion, interplaying with Tabane’s unique guitar, vocal, and flute sounds.
