The Brother Moves On

Here’s an album that already feels like a classic.

A classic of South African music as a whole, as it weaves its incredible sound from jazz, Afrobeat, pop and rock, roots music and South African chants – everyone in this band seems to love the mike even more than their instruments.

Talking about singing, Siyabonga Mthembu – the leader of The Brother Moves On – sings in many different languages, but it’s always about daily struggles – some even call it protest music – but also about that inner fire that keeps you going and doing such beautiful things as “$/he Who Feeds You…Owns You”. (Junior Naidoo)

Stream “$/he Who Feeds You…Owns You” LP on Bandcamp.
