Mango Groove release "Faces to the Sun"

4th March 19

A humbled Mango Groove are honoured to announce the release of the single and music video of “Faces to the Sun’’, the title track off their most recent album, and it’s perfect timing as the band ready for their 30th union celebration.
The visuals, beautifully captured during various concerts throughout the country emphasize what it has always been about for Mango Groove; the incredible support they have had from all South Africans through the years.

Says Claire Johnston: “Faces to the Sun” – one of my favourite Mango songs and all about positivity, not to mention just in time for our 30th Anniversary Celebration”

The legendary ensemble invite audiences to their celebration which will take place over 3 nights; 8th, 9th and 10th of March at Monte Casino. What is a celebration without a party after all?

This is a band whose sound transcends generations and will continue to do so for generations to come. Theirs is the sound of the nation – a sound that has been a part of South African history and will continue to be beyond the next 30 years.

About Mango Groove

Mango Groove is under any description a great and much loved South African institution: Having cut its teeth on the mid-80’s SA alternative music scene (difficult times indeed for non-racial South African acts), the group exploded into the national consciousness with the release of its 10 times Platinum debut album in 1989. Since then the group, with its uniquely eclectic, Big Band “Marabi-Pop’’ sound has truly captured the hearts of all South Africans both here and all around the world. Powered by Claire’s utterly distinctive, soaring vocals, and featuring the unique texturing of the penny whistle and big band Marabi horns, Mango Groove has racked up a host of achievements throughout the years, and has firmly established itself as one of South Africa’s most recognised and loved music icons.

The group’s highlights through the years have been numerous, and have included the following:
