Regarded as one of the top music groups in the Kavango, Tight Kasi Brothers (TKB) is a nationally recognised trio with four albums, five Namibia Annual Music Awards (NAMAs) nominations and their own record label, Chobe Entertainment, to their name.

tjil caught up with the Kavango crocodiles, Sai, Abby and Bones, to discuss their forthcoming album Vangandu, the sonic direction of this piece as well as their roll-out plan.

Like many other musicians who have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent national state of emergency regulations, TKB had to go back to the drawing board and reschedule the release date for this album.

“As promised, the album will definitely drop this year once the situation has eased.

“In the meantime, we have three singles off the album to give people a glimpse of what's coming,” Abby said.



Uniquely Namibian

On what fans can expect, the trio shared that they're introducing a new sound on Vangandu, emphasising that they want to be uniquely Namibian.

“We are singing in our vernacular language, but we are putting out this album with the intention to grasp the attention of the world.”

The trio listed Top Cheri, Zhondi, Swart Baster and Maszanga as some of the artists they collaborated with on the offering. With the country practising social distancing, Abby mentioned that their focus now is to complement their singles with visuals.

“We would like to have a big launch with hundreds in attendance but we can't, hence we have extended the release date because we want to do it big this time around.

“Once the situation is contained, we will announce the exact release date,” the musician promised.



Longevity

As they gear up to add another body of work to their catalogue, the trio attribute their longevity in the music industry to focus, patience and vision.

They maintain that they make music for a greater cause and use their platforms to speak up for their people.

They're also passionate about making music that changes lives, they said.

“Our goal is to make great music and have fun while doing it,” Abby said.
