Orah & The Kites are a melancholic alternative folk 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/Ableton Live Percussions).
Orah & The Kites have played at local venues such as Cafe Roux CBD, The Raptor Room, The Gin Bar and many more. The band has also played at Muizenbergs Concert in the Park in 2017, Garden State Festival alongside Kyp Malone, Dave Depper and Laura Burhenn in 2018, and recently played at the Design Ndaba in 2019.
Each member of the group draws influence from a variety of sources but as a collective, the main influences of sound come from Bon Iver (as well as his project Big Red Machine), Moses Sumney and Florence & The Machine.
