Phelimuncasi (Nyege Nyege Tapes) are a trio of Gqom vocalists comprised of Malathon and twin siblings Makan Nana and Khera. The group was formed in 2012 in the Mlaszi township of Durban South Africa. Their music is enchanting and potent, richly imbued with an immense storytelling tradition that harks back to southern African toyi-toyi: a powerful dance of protest and struggle accompanied by rhythmic singing that was used during anti-apartheid demonstration to intimidate police and security forces.
