Back when I lived in Cape Town, people used to look forward to the weekly Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts as a chance to have a bit of picnic and chill in the sun under Table Mountain, which is why it’s always a big occasion when, South African musical legends Mango Groove is added to the bill.
While audiences can expect to hear the uber-familiar Mango hits catalogue in all its South African glory, the exciting news from the band is that they will be performing their brand new single ‘’Faces to the Sun’’, their first new release in over 6 years for the outdoor crowd! ‘’Faces to the Sun’’ is truly a big slice of Summer Power Pop, with that unmistakeably infectious Mango Groove sound, and is a true celebration of South African-ness!
The single is the first of several that will be released from the group’s forthcoming album ‘’Sing the Beloved Country’’ (due in March 2016). The album has been over 4 years in the making, and represents a celebration of great SA songs through the decades, featuring Mango Groove and key collaborations with some of South Africa’s most legendary and timeless artists.
