Tucan Tucan


The desire of a group of musicians from different cultures and backgrounds to unite and fuse different styles of music, resulted in the launch of Tucan Tucan. Through its music, Tucan Tucan overcomes boundaries, breaks down barriers, brings people together and embraces diverse cultures.

Tucan Tucan uncovers and explores music in all its aspects: A wealth of ideas, rhythms, sound, instruments and songs. They believe their music to be a tool to promote cultural interaction. More vibrant than ever, Tucan Tucan strives to entertain audiences from all walks by bringing rhythms and melodies that are appealing to a wide audience and yet incorporating a taste of something new that will open a magical door to new musical experiences.

The show is an enchanting journey that captures the audience with soulful sounds to energetic up-tempo compositions, colourful exotic dancing and band-audience interaction. Besides the outstanding profile obtained by Tucan Tucan’s members in their music careers the status associated with the band can be seen through its participation in major festivals such as the North Sea Jazz Festival 2002.

The band is also known for its involvement in community-based educational projects around Cape Town's previously disadvantaged locations. The ”Music Mindset Outreach Project” (MMOP) is a Tucan Tucan initiative to promote an interest, respect and appreciation for music of diverse cultures through interactive workshops and performances conducted in schools
