Formed in 2018, South African pop group One Voice consists of four unique and harmonious voices. The four amazing women behind this exciting group are Kalinka Kilian, Carla Strauss, Karma Coetzer and Janke Bester, all of whom are passionate about music and exude a captivating energy on stage.

Urban Craft magazine had the honor of chatting with One Voice [O.V] recently. Below is how our conversation with the vocally-gifted quartet went: 

For the benefit of our readership would you mind giving us a brief history as far as 'One Voice' concerned?

[O.V] One Voice became a group just over two years ago when Lientjie Sothman decided to have auditions to put together a four member girl group. Since then weve recorded an album, which we released on all digital platforms, released two of our singles to radio, made two music videos that can be found on YouTube and also performed all around Pretoria.

Why the name 'One Voice' and what made you settle upon this particular name?

[O.V] After throwing out a lot of ideas we decided on One Voice because we are four individuals with very different voices, but in our music we come together with carefully chosen harmonies and arrangements to create One Voice.

Together you form one amazing unit, what, in your own words do you believe each of you brings to the table that the other members in the group continue to benefit from?

[0.V] All four of us have very different voices. Carla and Janke both have low voices, they reach the low parts of songs and bring a deep and emotive feel to the ballads that we sing. And Kalinka and Karma have high voices, they hit those beautiful high notes and Kalinka brings a lot of power to a song with her belting and Karma has a soft voice that also adds an emotive feel to the song. Personality wise, we always joke that Karma is like the mom of the group. She continuously keeps us grounded and helps us see things from a positive perspective. Janke has a very creative mind and always makes sure that whatever we do and put out is perfect. Kalinka and Carla are very similar in the sense that they lighten the mood by making jokes and by being silly, but if needed can also be serious and get things done.

How has the band managed to stay active and in connection with its fans during this lockdown?

[O.V] We've been continuing to post content and update our followers as much as possible over this lockdown period, although it is a bit difficult because the four of us can't physically be together. But despite of that we're still active and connecting with our followers as best as we can.

What are some of the things that you guys miss and are looking forward to doing again once the lockdown is over?

[O.V] We really miss being on stage performing together. There's no better feeling and we can't wait to get back to it.

Anything new that your fans can expect in the near future?

[O.V] We've got a project coming up with Toys For Africa that we're super excited about, and there will be more to come on that in the near future. Viewers can also keep an eye on our social media, we are on instagram @_one__voice_ and can also be found on facebook @One Voice, we make our announcements and keep viewers updated on there.
