Thabo & The Real Deal are a bare-boned soul quartet fronted by Zimbabwean singer Thabo Mkwananzi who cheekily describe themselves as "X-Factor contestants when the judges were Bob Marley, Fela Kuti and Dolly Parton." The group's compositions tackle socio-political issues with gripping minimal arrangements handled by a Fender rhodes piano, percussion and acoustic guitar.
