The Healers: Last Chapter follows the duo’s first release which they likened to taking the path of initiation as traditional healers. This begins with Talking to the Drums where they heed the call to music. The debut album was followed by the underwater ritual with Aquarian Drums that led to them becoming Fortune Tellers that make an offering.
And to give thanks to the Ancestors they released Ya Badimo while being guided by the spirit of the bones in Moya Wa Taola. The duo has finally matured and reached the final chapter where they are now The Healers.
At 41 tracks the album comprises features from some of the most notable names including Sun-El Musician, King Monada, Ihashi Elimhlophe, Ami Faku, Samthing Soweto, Kabza De Small and DJ Maphorisa.
“The title of the album ‘The Healers’ actually partially came from our fans. We were thinking long and hard about the title of the album because it had to be in line with the rest of the albums that we released. With all the travelling that we have done, the one thing that we always heard from our fans was that our music and/or performances healed them. The journey that we have been through has also healed us, so we felt this title would be fitting.”
The Healers: Last Chapter will be accompanied by a documentary produced by Red Bull & Spirit Motion
This celebration will be amplified through an exclusive documentary filmed in partnership with Red Bull. The project will be followed by a unique live performance and a new album to be released on Heritage Day.
