Starting out as "Anti Antiquities" when Frank Leepa formed the band in high school, then later changed the moniker to "Uhuru", before eventually settling for the name "Sankomota".
Sankomota was a Lesotho band known for their unique blend of traditional Sotho music, jazz, and rock.
Led by Frank Leepa, they addressed social issues such as apartheid and cultural identity, with lyrics often in Sesotho.
With a successful career spanning almost two decades, Sankomota released several albums and gained international recognition, performing in countries such as Sweden and the US.
Despite the band leader Leepa's death in 2003, their music continues to inspire and influence musicians in Lesotho and beyond.
Sankomota is remembered as a pioneering group that helped shape southern African music and promote social justice.
