Johannesburg - It was something old and something new on Coke Studio this week when the legendary traditional group, Mahotella Queens worked with Ray Phiri's daughter Nonku Phiri. Fans were also introduced to Indie band, Match.
"Our experience on Coke Studio was amazing! We worked with a young child, Nonku Phiri, and we were surprised when we learnt that she is Ray Phiri's daughter," The Mahotella Queens' Hilda Tloubatla tells us. "She is brilliant and we weren't surprised - she's as talented as her father. So gifted."
The fusion brought back some of our favourite Mbaqanga sounds in legendary group, The Mahotella Queens, while adding a modern twist, thanks to Nonku's powerful voice.
Indie outfit, Match, impressed the show's executive producers to earn themselves a spot on Coke Studio and it's not hard to see why. They bring a fresh sound to the studio that more than matched our expectations.
It's an amazing feeling when you hear a sound that simply takes your breath away. It's the kind of feeling we get when we hear Match and we can't wait to hear more from them.
