About the artist
Qkumba Zoo straddle as many contradictions as their native South Africa. They have one foot planted in the fertile delta of their continent’s ancient tribal rhythms and the other in the western world’s most progressive, cutting-edge yet melodically shimmering alterna-pop. They are attuned to the mysticism and magic of their homeland as the birthplace of civilazation, yet have their sights firmly set on a multi-media future in post-punk, post-apartheid South Africa, just as the old and new toil away side-by-side in present-day Johannesburg.
