Music that speaks to the soul

Bloemfontein-based band, Colourful Souls, is a group of musicians who mix fun and creativity with music which brings joy to the soul. The band was founded in 2014 by Oluwakayode Abimbola, also known as Kayswiss, and has grown immensely since then.

It is surely becoming a “must hear” in the Free State and South Africa at large.
According to Abimbola, the name “Colourful Souls” was coined from the passionate and happy tunes and melodies they felt when they were making music.

“We loved how we would get lost in the colour of music during a jam session we had. We then decided to form a band that brings colour to souls and leave them feeling joy, peace and love through listening to our music.”
