Amathongo is an evolving world music project which mixes traditional African styles with Jazz and a great variety of other music genres. It features particularly sounds of traditional southern African musical bows and other traditional African Instruments.

We aim to take you on a journey of some kind, and hopefully uplift you in that process. “Amathongo" means "Ancestral spirits" and within our playing in this group we all,  in some way reveal our own ancestral roots.

At present Amathongo features Madosini, Hilton Schilder, Pedro Espi- Sanchis, Lungiswa Plaatjies and Jonny Blundell.
