Product Notes

If you like Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Miriam Makeba, Johnny Clegg, PJ Powers, Malaika, Mafikizolo, Freshlyground, or Mahlatini and the Mahotella Queens, you'll love Platoon. PASSION!!!! It's the one word that BEST describes the way Platoon feels about music and how the group makes music. With total dedication to the craft of making new sounds, Platoon is a truly South African music group. Each of the members gives new meaning to the term "late bloomer," since they have been making music all their lives, but the best is yet to come... Platoon is crossover in the truest sense of the word: with a mixture of ethnic African, modern African and Western sounds, the music transcends the boundaries of colour and culture. It's SO New South Africa that this theme is carried through to every aspect of the group, even it's members (Namwaaka and Rob), who have stuck it out all these years and are still going strong. Exciting and amazing things lie ahead, with the group's debut album now available on CD Baby! Entitled 'Room for One More,' the CD contains 10 tracks ranging from old-style African-infused house to melodic African lullabyes and a few surpirses in between. The group's sound has been best described as "world music," since the fusion of different instruments, cultures, genres and styles has created something fresh and new, yet still relevant and familiar. Platoon strives to be unique and yet ubiquitous, not quite avant garde, definitely not run-of-the-mill. In the genre of "world music," Platoon probably best fits somewhere along the musical continuum between the Afro-Jazz sounds of Freshlyground and the Urban African style of Malaika, with a shot of neo-classical thrown in for good measure, just to add a dash of spice and a touch of colour. Enjoy!
