JUST 6 is a six member Vocal Band from South Africa, Johannesburg established in 2011.
Over the years, the Band has been greatly appreciated for their clean crisp vocals, distinct harmonies and unforgettable melodies.
By fusing Contemporary Jazz, Pop, RnB, Gospel and Soul music they have always been able to leave a lasting impression to all their audiences both Locally and Internationally, with a fresh style they call AFRO-VOCAL PLAY.
When asked about their new style, they highlighted how, for the longest time, acappella music has always been viewed as just voices without instruments;
Nkosie Hospas, primary Arranger and Composer of Just 6 asked passionately.
“What if the voice became the instrument?
What if all the elements of a band, all came from the human voice?
What if, from these African Voices, we heard African instruments?
What if we took all this, and called it AFRO-VOCAL PLAY!”
And from this, an exciting, new, bold, vocal identity was born.
Created to leave you wanting more, and designed to make you part of the experience.
“It seems impossible, until it’s done.” These are the words of Nelson Mandela, a man who was set on changing the world one day at a time.
“The impossible is being done.” Are the words Just 6,The Band With No Instruments, lives by, as they change the world one note at a time!
More on Just 6
Just6 was formed in 2011 by Rashaka Mbevhana at a church camp conference as a four part harmony group sing traditional doo-wop gospel music. Later on that year Nkosie Hospas and Fezile Mavuso joined the group to make it the dynamic sextet we know today as Just6. A unique combination of voices that come from diverse walks of life, they have come together to give birth to what they call “Afro-vocal-play”, a distinct mixture of African indigenous sounds as well as smooth harmonies. As a multi-award winning group, Just 6 has left a footprint in both national and international platforms, having toured Southern Africa and parts of Europe the group has won national and international awards. The group’s inspirational heartfelt music had been shared through two EP’s (“Stimela” and “Take Me Back”) and two award winning albums (“Kuzolunga” and “Afro-Vocal Play Volume 1”).
