The desire of a group of musicians from different cultures and nationalities, including South Africa, Argentina and Mozambique, to unite and fuse different styles of music, resulted in the launch of the World Music, Afro-tropical band, Tucan Tucan.

Their music is kaleidoscope of sound; a vibrant melting pot of African rhythms such as Kwasa Kwasa, Marrabenta, Mbaqanga, Maskandi and High Life with South American elements from Samba, Salsa and Chacarera, as well as jazz influences and lyrics in African languages, Spanish, Portuguese and English. At present Tucan Tucan is taking a step further into their already innovative sound by blending a house/dance flavour into their brand new releases.

Their 2011 release, ‘We Are Growing’, is available online.
