Hot Traxxx / UDABA

Udaba Band Profile

Udaba (the matter/issue at hand) is a collective group of scholars/students, artists and
entrepreneurs who are commonly engaged in the production of a musical project. The
style of music that Udaba creates draws its influences from various music genres. It is a
fusion of jazz, vernacular lyricism and African indigenous music. The central theme of the
music is the use of African languages (isiXhosa) to inform especially illiterate rural youths
about the dynamic of culture within a transforming African society. The message it
carries deals with issues ranging from cultural and historical heritage to the present day
social and political challenges faced by the African continent.
Udaba draws their inspiration from Xhosa literature so as to translate it into musically
meaningful ways in the form of praise singing, lyrical essays and poetry. This is the
reason why they refer to their kind of music as Umculo Buciko (musical essays).
Since 2006 Udaba has performed in the Observatory Festival, Grahamstown Arts Festival,
in addition to the club performances from Imbizo Jazz Café (East London) to
Independent Armchair Theater (Cape Town).
