Arnold Coleske: I thought people forgot about us

Arnold Coleske of the music band The Coleske Brothers said he thought people had forgotten about them

“We are fortunate to have a big fan base that is loyal.”

The Coleske Brothers, Ewald and Arnold Coleske, started their singing career at the age of 10.

The duo decided to record their own debut CD "Coleske" in 1994.

Twenty-one countries later and sales exceeding more than 350,000, Coleske became the biggest duo to come out of South Africa.

The two brothers, Ewald and Arnold Coleske, make up the band.

Arnold said the duo decided focus on some behind the scenes activities in the industry.

The tours were getting too much so we are producing music now.

Their debut hit single Take Me Where The Sun Is Shining spent eight weeks on the European Billboard charts and went gold in Austria.
