Born a Zulu, Shibambo translates into English as “Guardian of the Skins”. The Shibambos were esteemed for their position as caretaker of the tribe’s animal skins for clothing and most importantly for their drums. Under his mother’s tutelage, he started playing drums at an early age. In South Africa he formed the band AZUMAH which performed for Nelson Mandela and subsequently toured with the stage production, Ipitombe, performing worldwide for over 10 years.
