Katumbela is in the list of names released by the permanent secretary to the President Carter Morupisi recently.  The seasoned jazz DJ who promotes jazz through his radio programme and Jazz promotion company Street Horn, has contributed so much to the music industry even beyond jazz.

Street Horn is a music promotion company that specialises in entertaining with jazz and classics. The company has managed top Afro jazz artists like Shanti-Lo for a long time. 

Besides Streethorn, Katumbela hosts a jazz show on Duma FM on Sunday. In the show he invites artists to the studio to talk about their careers in music. 

The show has hosted local artists like Nnunu Ramogotsi, Lister Boleseng and Bra John Selolwane just to mention but a few. In the show, he plays blues, mainstream jazz, fusion and Afro jazz.
