A firm favourite with Michell’s Plain music lovers, multi-culural band TUCAN TUCAN delighted once again and performed a number of new compositions including 'Make A difference'.

Mowbray town hall will reverbarate with Latin rhythms and salsa beats when TUCAN TUCAN and Salsa Candela take to the stage on Satruday...

An upbeat, crossover communique jam-packed with a wealth of influences ranging from Latin-jazz to chacarera, marrabenta and hi-life, Make a difference is the result a brilliant cross-cultural exchange.
Cape Times

This band rocks. Actually, it’s more like they sing, dance, jive, groove, and jump for joy, just because they can. And although they handle some serious themes in their lyrics, you albsolutely cannot feel blue listening to their songs.
