Orah & The Kites are a melancholic alternative/indie band based in Cape Town, South Africa. The band formed in 2016 by Ntokozo Mzimela (Keys/Vocals/Guitar) with best friends Teagyn Gracey (Vocals/Saxophone) and Jaimie De Klerk (Synth/Vocals).
The trio soon expanded to include Tristan De Beer (Lead Guitar/Vocals) and Kieron Brown (Bass/Vocals) in 2018 and they now welcome Giovanni Serci on drums.
The Orah & The Kites soundscape is forever evolving but is rooted in an appreciation for vocal harmony and the meditative cathartics of melody repetition.
Orah & The Kites have played at local venues such as The Raptor Room, The Gin Bar, Cafe Roux and more. The band has also graced the stages of local festivals such as Muizenbergs Concert in the Park in 2017, Garden State Festival alongside Kyp Malone, Dave Depper and Laura Burhenn, Design Ndaba, Endless Daze 2019 and Up The Creek 2020.
Each individual band member draws influence from a variety of artists and genres and bring that into the Orah & The Kites sound. The over arching sonic influencers are Bon Iver, Ry X, Florence & The Machine and Moses Sumney. Lyrically the band is inspired by the wide spectrum of human emotions and our ability to feel so much and sometimes nothing at all.
