Tshepang Ramoba

RMBO (born Tshepang Ramoba) is a drummer, vocalist, producer and film music supervisor, known as a member of the alternative band BLK JKS. He embarked upon a solo career in 2019 with the release of his EP Sešate, a reimagined take on loved African folk stories told over alternative rock instrumentals. For the artist music is about learning languages and he makes music to explore his mother tongue, Sepedi. For this offering, RMBO performed with Sibusile Xaba on guitar, Tebogo Seitei on trumpet and Xola on Bass, with Danial Jockob bringing synths and sounds in from Switzerland and Machume Zango brining percussion from Mozambique. “With my band music has taught me my language and culture. To know my culture and language inspires me to make more music which also guarantees more knowledge due to research of the Bapedi people and culture (We are Africans),” he says. These songs explore the ordinary day to day living in one’s home or castle (mošate).
