Oswald Moses, Rudi Jacobs, Justin Jantjies, Abdul Baasit and Keagan Adams have been capturing the hearts of workers in Cape Town as they go around the city centre playing various songs during lunchtime.
The five men, aged between 20 and 26, say while they live in one of the most gang-infested streets in Manenberg they have no desire to be skollies and instead want to work and spread hope in their community.
The band, who call themselves the Street Kings, met five years ago when they joined a minstrel group known as the Bright Stars.
“It was at a klopse group where we all learnt to play. I play the trumpet and the rest of them play the trombone. Ons blaas ’n lank tydjie saam. Ons is baie lief vir musiek,” says Rudi, 26.
