Being part of the Rootspring Music experience has brought new growth to my musical journey. Not many platforms have been able to give me such a great collective of individuals I can call family. Big salute!

Rootspring is truly a haven for musicians. And for beautiful, original music. The quality of the recordings and live gigs produced by Rootspring says it all really. Soul, care, love, professionalism. In a venal world Rootspring gives us hope. Viva Rootspring Viva!

Rootspring is doing deeply important work for South African culture, music and musicians with their whole hearts. Working with them has been inspiring, uplifting and fun!

Beautiful, intimate venue run by an amazing team. Really enjoyed playing there and can’t wait to go back

Jon Shaban

I love Rootspring. I love the care that they take in the production of every musical and filmic offering they create. Their approach of respecting the artist as well as the art above all really makes them a remarkable component of the South African and global music scene.

I really enjoyed my time here. As an artist, I was treated well and appreciated for my work. It’s a beautiful space for any artist to come perform or watch a performance.

Odwa Bongo

Incredibly supportive of local music. True passion for the art and great people behind this beautifully, warm hearted company

Ann Jangle

We recently (the Jack Mantis Band) performed at the Rootspring House. What a night! Possibly the most intimate setting for a truly humbling listening experience…and possibly the finest live sound we’ve ever experienced.

If you’re a true listener of sound and lyric, Rootspring should be on your monthly calendar.

Jack Mantis
Musician

I’m deeply impressed and moved by the work of Rootspring. They are all passion and commitment in uplifting musicians from all walks of life. They contribute greatly to social justice. Good people doing good work, well done Rootspring.
