The Brother Moves On is a multi-discipline, artistic and collaborative concept in the form of a band that evokes the spirit of the artist as a mediator between the real, the surreal
and the “keeping-it-real” worlds that make life worthy of its own breath. Formed in 2004 it consists of a trio: of cousins, whose umbilical chords tie them to the East Rand in Johannesburg, South Africa. The music is an eclectic fusion of sounds that could be loosely classied as World Music, is distinctly South African, with its soul etched in the crevice of traditional, shamanic sounds that resurrect and resuscitate the ancestral
spirit of the artist, long-gone and yet-to-be-born, while it also steps up to the soundtrack that is today. In Zulu the music can
be summed up in one word: UBUNGOMA.
