Blackroots Marimbas

Bio

Born and raised in Gugulethu Cape Town, all of Blackroots' members were exposed to Marimbas in their early teens, through various music programs in church and school. In 2012, Sibahle Sky Dladla brought this dynamic group of talented people together and they began to play as band, which fueled their love and passion for performance.

The band persevered through two years of jamming, busking and petitioning. They were simultaneously juggling early years of university, skepticism from their parents and ridicule from the more experienced young men that were also in the industry. Their hard work paid off when, in 2012, Arm In Arm In Africa (through) J.L. Zwane Church, sponsored the band with a set of marimbas and Blackroots Marimbas was officially formed.

The band consists of Ntombekhaya Halam, Duduzile Nlovu, Lutho Mzongwana and the founder, Sibahle Sky Dladla.

The band has over the years created its own style of music called Neo-Traditional Indie, which is a fusion of old traditional style and instruments with their new youthful style.
