The group, which is flying high with the successful release of their latest album The Rising Tide, are in essence a rising tide and are expected to wow their growing fan base on the Telecel Main Stage on Sunday May 5 at 8:30pm.
Their show will see them making a prestigious collaboration with Senegalese Baaba Maal, who is this year’s headline act to bring an end to the programme at the Main Stage.
Formed just six years ago, the band has toured more than 30 countries and collaborated with international artistes that include Dutch DJ Gregor Salto and appeared at the Mosho Music Conference in Johannesburg and WOMEX 2012 in Thessalinik, Greece.
They have also performed live on BBC’s Later . . . with Jools Holland, making them one of the most followed groups in Southern
Africa if not the continent as a whole.
Mokoomba’s sound is unique, their choreography second to none and one of their major strengths is they exhibit
immense energy and passion for their trade.
Last year they performed live with Salto leaving numerous Hifa leaving revellers spellbound and it is certainly every Hifa follower’s hope that the reverberating sounds of the
Tonga conquers the Main Stage once more.
