Amaryoni has become one of South Africa's finest Mbube vocal groups. The group's music is strongly influenced by the Is'cathamiya style, but Amaryoni also arrived at their special and unique sound by adding plenty of Township vibes, along with some "Bandit" music, and strong Gospel influences. Amaryoni ("The Lions") have been charming audiences around the country for years, and have grown into a strong, stable and harmonious musical unit.

All the closely-knit members fully understand and appreciate their important roles as singers in a nation that tends to sing about almost anything that happens, or has happened, to its people.

Line-up: Zamo Mbutho, Thulani Galane, Thami Mbatha, 'Spencer' Smanza Nokwe, and Nathi Scabashe.
