The Survivals

Above:  The Survivals are a South African band made up mostly of the Mentoor Family. The Mentoors are Khoisans who were the original indigenous inhabitants of South Africa. Today the Khoisan population is very low.  They've been campaigning for many years to halt the total erasure of their cultural identity and heritage to the eroding effects of Westernization and cultural appropriation. The Mentoors are of the survivals who are still fighting to maintain the Khoisan name and language.  

The Survivals' band performs a blend of Reggae and American RnB putting their Khoisan twist on it. They also play a lot of traditional Khoisan tunes. The are scheduled to perform at the World Beat in 2020 at the NY State Fair; barring there is no forced cancellation due to the Corona Virus.
