Flying Bantu

Bio

Flying Bantu is a five-piece music group from Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.

The group's sound is a fusion of Afro-rock, reggae, funk and jazz. Flying Bantu recorded its five-track EP titled 'Cruising Attitude' follwed by the ten-track Ceasefire album in 2017 and 2019 respectively.

The ensemble has performed at such South African events as Rocking the Daisies and Artscape Theatre as well as Zimbabwe's Miombo Magic Music Festival. They have shared the stage with MiCasa, Black Coffee, Sulumani Chimbetu, Ammara Brown and Hope Masike.

The group gained mileage at the 2018 edition of Harare International Festival of The Arts where they shared the stage with South African artists Lira and Freshly Ground. In 2019, the band made its debut appearance at the Splashy Fen Festival in Durban. Shortly afterwards, Flying Bantu stepped off the African continent for the first time when they performed at the 2019 edition of Canadian Music Week in Toronto.

In the press:

“Our hope is that we become a product whose reach transcends the borders. We are expressing something born in the 21st century Africa which is culturally vulnerable, yet more assertive than the world can realise,” Flying Bantu.
