Malombo (South Africa)  
Malombo

LED by multi-instrumentalist Philip Tabane, Malombo is one of South Africa's longest standing groups, and has helped shape and inspire the musical careers of many.

Instrumentation:
guitar (acoustic / semi-acoustic), percussion, penny whistle
Genre: traditional / indigenous, African Jazz










Initially operating as The Malombo Jazzmen with 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.




Tabane blends traditional compositions and cultural themes with his acoustic sounds.

Internationally acclaimed, Tabane has toured extensively in Europe and the United States, performing at the Apollo Theatre (New York) and the Montreaux Jazz Festival, amongst others. The group is based in Mamelodi, Pretoria.
