340ml – “Fairy Tales” [VIDEO]

Originally from Maputo, Mozambique, 340ml is a Johannesburg-based band that fuses Dub, Jazz, Reggae, Afro-Jazz and Latin beats into a unique blend that is often hard to pigeon-hole.  Featuring, Rui Soeiro on bass, Paulo Jorge Chibanga on drums Pedro Pinto on vocals/ sampler and Tiago Paulo on guitar, all four members met in Maputo. Having arrived in Joburg in the mid-nineties to primarily pursue academic and career interests, the band chose to maintain their musical ambitions. Then known as Panic Orange, they turned their focus from more traditional rock to a sound that incorporated Ska and Reggae in 2001.   They have performed at various venues throughout South Africa, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, England and France.
