Formed in December 2005, Desmond & The Tutus plays an infectiously awesome blend of Rock ‘n Roll and Indie Kwela Pop. Energetic, tongue in cheek songs and a frantic live show make Desmond & The Tutus an unforgettable act.

The Tutus have played sold-out shows all over the globe, including Japan, France, Sweden and the UK. In 2012 the band worked with Los Angeles-based producer, Eric Broucek, and their 2nd full-length album entitled ‘MNUSIC’ was released in July of 2012. The first three singles from the album all charted on the 5FM Top 40. Most notably, the 2nd single ‘Zim Zala Bim’ reached No. 1 on the 5FM Top 40. That same year, Desmond and the Tutus were selected as the opening act for large international bands like The Drums, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Two Door Cinema Club.

The band recently completed successful tours of Japan, the UK and Europe, and continues to play packed venues and headline festivals all around South Africa.
