Mi Casa is a house music band based in Johannesburg consisting of three members, Dr. Duda (producer and pianist), J'Something (vocalist and guitarist), and Mo-T (trumpeter).
The band was formed in early 2011 in Johannesburg, when all three future members were at a lounge and decided to perform together. A few months later, they released an album titled Micasa Music, which went gold and won several awards at the 18th Annual MTN South Africa Music Awards in 2012.
In 2015 they returned with their double-disc album Home Sweet Home which includes hit singles “Chocolate” and “Barman” featuring Big Nuz and DJ Tira. In August 2017 they released their fourth studio album Familia after nearly disbanding four months earlier.
The band received a lot of attention from the public in late 2011. Their hit single "These Streets" was taken from the album Mi Casa, which showcased the unique urban jazz sound of the band. The band went on to open for a number of major international acts, including The Layabouts, Reel People, Tortured Soul, and Canadian hip hop recording artist Drake.
Their second single from the album, "Heavenly Sent", also made every major South African radio chart, and Micasa Music the album earned them South African Music Awards (SAMA) nominations for Best Dance Album, Album of the Year, Group of the Year, Newcomer of the Year, and Record of the Year.
In 2014, the band performed at Ultra Music Festival in South Africa. They have been nominated at the MTV Africa Music Awards (MTV MAMAs) in 2014 and 2016.
Their most recent releases were “Love Is”, released at the end of 2018 off an upcoming project called #MasterOfTheCraft, and a couple of downtempo versions of their hits which are available on their Soundcloud.
Mo-T's father, Kgasoane Banza, was part of the South African Afropop band Mango Groove, while J'Something is originally from Portugal. J is one of the judges, alongside David Higgs, on My Kitchen Rules South Africa.
J’Something’s fondness for food has extended to a book and restaurant that share the name ‘Something’s Cooking’ and a popular YouTube channel.
