A multi-platinum selling and award winning acapella group, The Soil, whose music the trio best describes as ‘Kasi Soul’ strives to intensify their voices to deliver what can be described as a melodic and harmonious messages to uplift the listeners and healing the souls of those who relate all around the world. And today,they’re featuring as the South African artists that the world can’t get enough of and hopefully you too in our Music Monday blog post.
Consisting of brothers, Ntsika Ngxanga and Luphindo Ngxanga and joined by Soil Sister,Buhlebendalo Mda, The Soil’s musical style is manifested in its rhythmic vocal bass line, continuous beat boxing and the remaining voices which add to the harmonic and polyphonic enhancement.

Some of their hits that they’ve had the pleasure and honour of performing at world stages include New York’s Apollo Theatre at the at the Africa Now Festival, Scotland’s prestigious White Nights of St. Petersburg International Music Festival and in 2015 performed for the Queen of England herself at the Commonwealth Day celebrations.

For now, we’ll allow you to enjoy just three beautiful voices and some local jazz for inspiration.
