Flying Bantu is an Afro-Fusion band from Victoria Falls Zimbabwe. After a lengthy creative process at the beginning of 2016 under the magical spray of the Victoria Falls, the band is eager to express its warm Jazzy sound, with a distinct traditional Zimbabwean signature. The band’s unique sound also embodies flavours of rock, reggae, funk and jazz. Comprised of five members that include a drummer (Sam), a guitarist (Amkela), a keyboardist (Phathisani), bass guitarist (Bongani), and lead vocalist (Nash), together the five exude energy and Southern African flavor as they sing about being human, being African, and everything in between; both beautifying and challenging humanity’s complex existence.
Together they have played with enough bands to make up an evening’s line up at a small festival, and it is this experience, ranging from big stage gigs to private corporate functions, that has led to this alchemic grouping which effortlessly gives “Flying Bantu” their unique, earthy sound.
“Our hope is that we are a product whose reach transcends the borders set by culture, race, religion and even genre in a grand quest for a togetherness amongst citizens of the world”.
Flying Bantu pride ourselves as an original ‘festival act’ with the flexibility that allows for a scaleable performance according the nature of the occasion.
