Tape Gang is a the latest Music collective to pop out of the rich soil of South Africa. An of Afro soul, house, R&B and hip hop musicians based in the south of Johannesburg and this is their first release as a group. Inspired by Stimela, the song Ushukela speaks of their brotherhood and the need to celebrate life with the people around you the group stated the work of Stimela is a time capsule of South African music and history, so the words “sweeter than candy” really resonated while they recorded their debut single.
A celebration of life paying homage to the late great Ray Phiri of the Afro-fusion band Stimela. The hook is derived from the lyrics of the song ‘Come to Me’(Zwakala) by Stimela.
