Fertile ground for a not-to-be-missed Summer Sunset Concert

Talking about The Soil at the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden you can be forgiven for thinking that the conversation is about gardening – but in this instance, it’s about rich Kasi-soul music being performed at the Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts.

The Summer Sunset Concerts have become a much anticipated annual event for Capetonians, who flock in their droves to soak up world-class live music in a unique and awe-inspiring open-air setting.

Sunday 3 February – the start of The Soil’s KOROBELA TOUR in celebration of love 

The Soil is a South African 3-member acapella group whose music is defined as Kasi-soul and features an eclectic mix of musical genres such as jazz, hip hop, Afro-pop and Afro-soul – all accompanied with beatboxing – a distinct feature in the group’s musical style. Each member of The Soil takes turns in solo vocal performances, with their songs delivering an uplifting, positive and happy message to listeners.

The Soil have recently completed a highly successful East African tour and will be performing their latest single titled #KOROBELA (The Love Spell) for the first time in Cape Town – a fitting start to the month of love.

In addition to well-known songs such as Susan, Thambolan and Joy, concert-goers can look forward to a sneak preview of other brand new releases from The Soil’s upcoming new album. This will be the band’s fourth performance at Kirstenbosch which also marks the beginning of The Soil’s KOROBELA TOUR in celebration of love.

“We love the Cape Town audience and the relaxing vibe and atmosphere at that the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens,” says The Soil members Buhlebendalo Mda, Luphindo Ngxanga, and Ntsika Fana Ngxanga.
