Sereetsi and the Natives

Bio

Sereetsi & the Natives is a folk music band from Gaborane, Botswana.

The group's debut album 'Four String Confessions' was released in 2015. This was followed by 'Motoko' which came out in 2018. Their music is a fusion of traditional Botswana rhythms and Western influences.

Their debut album earned them four gongs at the Botswana Music Awards in 2016. The album also earned them fame and saw them performing in the US, Sweden, Namibia and South Africa.

The band has shared the stage with established artists such as Oliver Mtukudzi, Vusi Mahlasela, Caiphus Semenya, Letta Mbuli and Jonas Gwangwa. The act headlined the Gaborone International Music and Culture Week with US jazz musician Jonathan Butler in August 2016.

The ensemble has also played at the Mahika Mahikeng Jazz Festival (2015 & 2016), Kgalagadi Jazz Festival (2016 & 2017) and the Cultural Calabash Fest (2015). Other festivals where the group has played include Maitisong Arts Festival, Maun International Arts Festival, The Hamptons International Jazz Festival, Mascom Live Sessions and the President’s Concert.

In 2017, Sereetsi collaborated with Zambian star Mumba Yachi and South African bassist and singer AusTebza in a project called Kgalagadi Soul.
