Kabaal Klankbaan has the ability to stay fresh and interesting and keep the crowd engaged throughout his live sets.” – Lize Scheepers, TheFuss.co.za
Kabaal klankbaan is Gauteng-based musician Floris Groenewald’s folk-rock music project. “It’s not a stage name,” says Floris, “but a band, of which I’m the only permanent member.” They play acoustic, alternative folk-rock, which varies from indie-pop songs, folky dystopian love songs, bluesy rock & roll, to songs about robots and video games.
Most live performances consist of one guy with an acoustic guitar, harmonica, and stompbox, rocking and rolling and folking in an attempt to ignore genre limitations. His next show might be Afrikaans, English, bilingual, folky, rocky, accompanied or solo. In 2015 Kabaal klankbaan performed several times as a duo, joined by saxophinist Andre van Coller.
Kabaal klankbaan has released a debut album, Dit wat oorgebly het, in October 2012, closely followed by a standalone, free download single, This town is for lovers, in November 2012. They launched a new single, Player Two (featuring Gad de Combes from Adventure Man and Shortstraw), in October 2013, and a second full-length album, Baptism, in June 2015. new electro/indie-pop single, Robot Girlfriend, was released in 2016, and playlisted on MixFM, KovsieFM, MFM, PUK FM, Radio Active Rock, Red Cap Radio, IFM, and The Grind Radio.
Proe soos jou ouma se melktert. Klink soos ‘n vriendelike giggel. Ruik soos kleuter-gees.
