Tumi is lyrical genius. Conscious rap. The time is now.
Tumi is Tumi Molekane, one of South Africa’s brightest up and coming wordsmiths. The Volume is Tiago, a lead guitar-monster whose pitching melodies create an unmistakable beauty that softens the edges of the band’s sound, Paulo Chibanga, the beat-master, and Dave Bergman, an intense and broody bass player with a laidback sense of smooth. They met in a dusty basement jazz club in Johannesburg and have become one of the most popular South African musical exports, performing across Africa, Europe, and Canada.
