YANDI DU PLESIS



WINDHOEK

The guys from South African group Rubber Duc have a passion for music that has come a long way.

"We all come from different backgrounds in terms of culture and the music we grew up with. However, it's amazing how our diverse backgrounds finally shaped the sound of Rubber Duc.”

Although the pandemic has drastically hampered their income capacity, it has also created an opportunity for them to hone their skills in other aspects of music, songwriting and production.

"It also breathed new life into our love for live performances," they add.

Too often one takes it for granted to play in front of a crowd, they say.

Their performance at next month’s Namibia Tourism Expo will be their first time in Namibia.

Arts and tourism

They said exploring new towns, cities and countries has always been an advantage of their profession. “We cannot wait to explore Namibia! We have heard so many wonderful things about the country and are very excited to experience its uniqueness first hand,” the group, who have worked with Namibian-born singer Hugo Ludik in the past, said.

Arts and tourism are close to the heart of this group, and they believe the two industries enrich each other.

“Look at the beauty in the culture and landscape, hear the beauty in our melodies and lyrics. We travel to share our sound with the world. The tourism industry allows us to spread our sound worldwide.”

Unique and energetic

Their fans can look forward to a unique and energetic set. If you have never seen Rubber Duc perform, a surprise awaits.

"Once these challenging times are over, people will be desperate to travel and explore again. For now, we will work much harder for much less, but there is light at the end of the tunnel and we can expect to be busier than ever before when it all blows over,” they said.
