Victoria Falls based afro-fusion outfit Flying Bantu which is set to release its debut album has vowed to conquer the world with the unique sound and message of peace, co-existence and togetherness.
Famed for being the adventure capital of the continent, Victoria Falls is not just home to the legendary waterfall but a town with a booming arts industry.
The resort town’s oldest suburb Chinotimba has in the recent past ushered to the global stage one of the celebrated afro-fusion group, Mokoomba.
In 2016, the same township saw the birth of another afro-fusion outfit, the Flying Bantu which is promising to conquer the world with their unique sound that embodies flavours of rock, reggae, funk and jazz.
The four-member band recorded its debut album towards the end of 2017 in Western Cape South Africa and is targeting to release the 10-track album soon.
Produced by celebrated South African sound engineer Keith Farquharson, the debut album has the message of togetherness, peace, love and breaking societal boundaries.
Among some of the tracks include, Cease Fire, Hezvo, Red Dress Lady, Conversation and Sunshine City.
As part of the medium term plans, the group is eyeing to take its music to the world and to also have local shows to popularise the album.
Song writer and lead singer Tinashe Maoneni says growing up in the resort destination has enabled the team to interact with visitors from different backgrounds and in the process helped them appreciate diversity and the need to preach the gospel of peace.
The afro-fusion outfit is convinced that it has all it takes to conquer the world and has resolved to make use of their music to unite the world and break boundaries set by different cultures.
