THE annual Duck Derby concert is taking place on July 26 on the Wembley top-fields.Desmond and the Tutus was a great choice for a 22-year celebration. The band name was somewhat inspired by the Archbishop Desmond Tutu and has now become synonymous with South African indie rock-pop music. The band formed in 2005, creating music which is infectious. “They are a blend of rock n’ roll, indie kwela pop and genius.”Desmond and the Tutus is the ideal vibe for a family school, a band made up of two brothers and a childhood friend. “Their musical influences are Snoop Dogg, Michael Jackson, Michael Bublé, Michael Jordan, Michael Steven, George Michael actually anybody with a ‘Michael’”. Some of their most popular songs are Tattoo, Lazy Bones, Pretoria Girls and Teenagers. They were also influenced by growing up in a church environment since the two brothers’ father was a minister. Their songs elude to suburban living and childhood memories of Pretoria. Although they are quick to point out that their songs aren’t necessarily autobiographical, they bring a perspective only they could have had to the lyrics.
