Just 6 – Conference Band are an Afro-Pop/Soul, Jazz and Gospel Contemporary Acapella male ensemble from South Africa which was founded in 2011.
A unique combination of voices that comes from a diverse walk of life, they have come together to birth to what they call ‘Afrocal-play’ (African Vocal Play), a distinct mixture of African indigenous sounds as well as smooth harmonies.
As a multi-award winning group, Just 6 has left a footprint in both national and international platforms.
They have toured Southern Africa, Swaziland and Zimbabwe as well as parts of Europe such as Germany and Switzerland.
The group has won two national and two international awards. The group’s inspirational heartfelt music has been shared through two EP’s (‘Stimela’ and ‘Take Me Back’) and one award-winning album (‘Kuzolunga’).
Afrocalplay (Afro Vocal Play): a mixture of great vocal techniques first heard from Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Take 6, Naturally 7, Pentatonix and The Real Group in emulating instrumental sounds and resonances to produce music. Book through Speakers Inc
