The Soil


Like this track

 For Buhle, The Soil completes her life puzzle: it’s her second home. Her life long dream has always been to work with the likes of the Late and Great Gogo Mirriam Makeba, Mama Busi Mhlongo. Thandiswa Mazwai, Simphiwe Dana, Ringo Madlingozi, Gloria Bosman, and Hlengiwe Mhlaba, just to name a few. Buhle describe herself or her music as soulful or “Jazzy fizzle”, which is considered to be a mixture of all sorts of genres from which she has created her own soulful or “Jazzy fizzle”. To Buhle all genres do it for her, as they tend to match her every mood. Ntsika Fana Ngxanga aka Da FanArtistc: Also dreamt of being on stage as early as primary schooling years and used school desks as drums and turned every song into dance music, and transforming the classical jazz songs that he grew up being exposed to into his own musical world. Ntsika got introduced to clap and tap music, “apostolic gospel music”, and learnt to sing from the heart, add emotion to the very voice one was blessed with, and how to connect with music in its totality and the art of backing. The defining moment for Ntsika was when he started dreaming and receiving songs in his sleep which he coins “something very heavenly and humbling”, which he embraced as a Gift and God’s medium through which he was to pass messages of love, hope, courage, faith, joy, peace and happiness amongst many. Luphindo Ngxanga aka Master P: considers himself the friendliest and warmest member of the group. Contrary to his masculine beatbox prowess with which he meticulously kicks the bass drum and snare, accompanied by his harmonic basslines, Luphindo is a humanitarian in the group and loves to see the members happy all the time. Luphindo uses his fine arts academic training to think differently and seeing things in perspective which he then applies in the construction of ideas in the songs The Soil finally puts together. Luphindo is the ‘artist for shizy’
