Gang of InstrumentalsLocation: Based in Johannesburg
Gang of Instrumentals is a critically-acclaimed South African urban-pop group, founded in 2002, whose innovative musical style is a mixture of hip hop, street rap, pop, soul, R&B, ragga, reggae and rock, with elements of kwaito and house.
This fusion of different sounds has landed them the coveted Best Urban album at the 2009 South African Music Awards (SAMAs), and high profile performances such as the Presidential Inauguration, Cape Town Jazz Festival, Africa Day, Miss World, Indian Cricket League and numerous other premiere events.
The band members, Tumi ‘Lady Naturelle’ Masemola, Mandla N- Pimville spokesman, and ‘Bongo’ Riot Zungu, also write, produce and act in City Ses’la, which is the 2nd largest local show on TV (after Generations). With an average AR rating of 16.9, City Ses’la has had various seasons and picked up 7 out of the 8 awards they were nominated for at the SA Film and Television awards in 2009, making it by far the most successful comedy show in South Africa.

On behalf of Eventworx, I’d like to say a huge thank you, to you and to Gang of Instrumentals for your work at the Standard Bank PBB Indaba this year. It was such a pleasure working with the band, and we really appreciated their ability to jump in earlier than expected - when it came to changes in schedule and call time on Tuesday night. They really got the crowd going! We got great feedback about it and felt the event was a real success, thank you for your contribution.
