Songwriter, musician, producer, arranger, performing artist, DJ, TV personality, the family’s multi-talented oldest brother, Zwai Bala, hardly needs an introduction, while his hugely popular younger brother, Loyiso Bala, has carved out an impressive solo recording career for himself. Now, with both Zwai and Loyiso’s own stars burning brightly, they’ve joined forces with their prodigiously gifted younger brother, Phelo Bala, to form a trio known simply as … Bala Brothers.
The Bala family siblings have all certainly travelled a long path from the tough streets of their birthplace in the Kwa-Nobuhle Township outside Uitenhage in the Eastern Cape. Thankfully their epic journey has always been paved with music and song, and now the Bala name is set to leave another proudly South African musical legacy that will shine for many decades to come.
2008 was a whirlwind year for the “Brothers” with a fair amount of international travel. The guys had the privilege of performing in countries like Norway, Germany, Australia and Zambia. In addition to that they also managed to put together their sophomore album which is representative of the modern day South Africa.
Now, their highly anticipated debut album entitled "B3" is released. The stunning album features a unique mix of songs ranging from popular ‘Popera’ standards such as ‘Circle of Life’, ‘Beauty and the Beast’ (which features the glorious voice of special guest Judith Sephuma), ‘You Raise Me Up’, and Queen’s ‘Somebody To Love’, through to operatic numbers such as ‘Nella Fantasia’, ‘Caro Mio Ben’ and ‘All I ask of You’, the latter featuring the soaring vocals of internationally acclaimed soprano Angela Kerrison.
A stunning music video for the ‘Khumbula’ track has been created, and will shortly be seen all over TV screens nationally. A full documentary charting the Bala Brothers’ story - and the making of the debut album - has also been shot, and will be a useful tool with which to tell the latest chapter in the truly amazing story of three truly gifted individuals.
