The Soil is a South African award winning Band. It consists of four members namely Buhlebendalo “Soil Sister” Mda, Ntsika “Fana-tastic” Ngxanga, Luphindo “Master P” Ngxanga and Theo “Songstress” Matshoba.

Where the group started
The Soil was formed in 2003 when the members met in high school during jam sessions. At the time the group was known as ‘Particles of the Soil’ and consisted of more than 4 members. As years went by, some members left the group due to other engagements. In 2010, the group was down to four members: Buhlebendalo Mda (vocalist), Ntsika Ngxanga (main composer and vocalist), Luphindo (beatboxer and vocalist) & Samkelo Lelethu Mdolomba, known by his stage name, Samthing Soweto. Mdolomba was involved during the recording process of the group’s first album, however, due to contractual disputes and creative differences, Samkelo decided to leave and form the contemporary jazz group The Fridge where he served as the lead vocalist.
In 2011, The Soil released their self-titled debut EP ‘ The Soil ‘ which reached platinum status, selling over 50,000 copies. Their second album Nostalgic Moments was released digitally on iTunes on 15 September 2014. It was made available for hard copy purchase on 22 September 2014. The album includes guest appearances by the Grammy award-winning Ladysmith Black Mambazo and multiple award-winning hip hop artist Khuli Chana. Their third studio album titled Echoes of Kofifi was released in 2016.
