The Soil - The Soil
The Soil's self-titled debut takes listeners back to a time when the Creator sculpted the skies and the land, covering it with... the soil.
Defined as Kasi Soul, the group's music features (in a contemporary township style), an eclectic mix of musical genres such as jazz, hip hop, Afro-pop and Afro-soul.
Equal and up to the challenge, each of the group members take turns in solo vocal performance to display their most beautiful rendition of the melodic verses embedded in each song.
'The Soil' is a reflection of the group's aspiration for a world full of joy, hope, faith, goodwill and love - a message carried out with each performance and each song.
The album is also a culmination of years of dedication, hard work and a passion for the art.
Having paid their dues as a performing group in and around the country, The Soil is as comfortable at big music festivals and concerts as it is on theatre stages.
Over the past seven years The Soil has graced stages of the most renowned events such as the Standard Bank Joy of Jazz, Grahamstown Arts Festival, Jazz by the River, as well as theatre stages such as the Nelson Mandela Theatre and the Catalyst Theatre in Cape Town.
It is through this journey that The Soil strives to be a household name and a global brand imprinted in the hearts and minds of those who aspire for a better world.
