THE FIRE acapella group consists of five members, including Nomvelo Mhlongo, Ntuli Nokutha, Sbiya Khanyisile, Mncwabe Thabile and group leader Nzuza Mbali.

When asked what inspired them to form the group, Nzuza, a Grade 9 pupil, said she used to watch people performing this kind of music on YouTube. She developed an interest and decided to practise beatboxing, a form of vocal percussion primarily involving the art of mimicking drum machines. It may also involve vocal imitation of turntablism and other musical instruments.

The group performed recently at Kranskop Hall during a South African Democratic Teachers Union (Sadtu) Women’s Day celebration. They sang two songs, Honey and akanamali.

Thuthukile Ninela, who call herself “imbongi engadumile” also recited two of her best poems at the function. — Supplied.
