Something about traditional music that makes one feels the love, humanity and contentment. 

Sigiya Ngengoma is presented by the Zimiphi ‘Zimdollar’ Biyela and Khathide Ngobe. They both have a deep and rich understanding of this genre of Music uMaskandi,  uMaskandi’s content is derived from real life experiences, its daily joys and sorrows, both presenter understand that and gracefully interprets that to the listeners. The ambiguity in the rich isiZulu language, it’s enough to leave a simple joke turned into something else that will leave you as a listener making your own interpretation and longing for more.
