“much adored… and breathtaking”

The Sunday News, Zimbabwe

Nobuntu, a female a cappella quintet from Zimbabwe, has garnered international acclaim for its inventive performances that include traditional Zimbabwean songs to Afro-jazz to gospel music. On its first-ever American tour, Nobuntu will perform music from its two recordings, Ekhaya (2016) and Thina (2013), in an uplifting concert featuring pure voices, percussion, traditional instruments like the mbira (thumb piano), and authentic dance movements! “Full of sparkling energy” (Sunday Times, Germany), Nobuntu believes that music can be an important vehicle for change, one that transcends racial, tribal, religious, gender, and economic boundaries.

The word “Nobuntu” is an African concept that values humbleness, love, unity, and family from a woman’s perspective. The ensemble represents a new generation of young African women singers who celebrate and preserve their culture, beauty, and heritage through art. Nobuntu was nominated for “Best Musician of the Year” at the Zimbabwe International Women Awards in London in 2015, and has performed at festivals and concert halls throughout Europe and Africa.
