WHAT WE'VE DONE
Setting the standard high, Urban Strings made their debut on the stage of South African Idols Season 11 & 12, performing on seven LIVE episodes since then alongside winners Noma Khumalo, Karabo Mogane and SA favourites such as Somizi Mhlongo, Judith Sephuma, J’Something (MiCasa), Donald Moatshe, DJ Tiro and the Top 10 contestants. With a staggering total of 100 million votes cast for season 13, the show has reached new heights and is entering it’s 14th Season.
Urban Strings have taken a refreshing approach by pushing boundaries musically as evident in past collaborations with the likes of some South African artists namely: ProVerb, RJ Benjamin, Swing City, Loyiso Bala, The Graeme Watkins Project and Donald Moatshe. The collective has also become a favourite at corporate events for clients like BMW, Patek Philippe, Mont Blanc Nedbank, Naspers, Standardbank, Growthpoint Properties, Tsogo Sun, Mzansi Magic, SPAR, Baker and McKenzie, Glad Africa, Transport Africa, Kyknet and Webber Wentzel.
