About the Performance
Calling all a cappella lovers! Come get lost in the rich tones of Zimbabwe. Nobuntu, an all-female a cappella quintet, has drawn praise worldwide for their inventive performances that masterfully blend traditional Zimbabwean songs with Afro-jazz and gospel tunes. The ensemble’s concerts are a treat of pure voices, combined with lively percussion, traditional instruments such as the mbira (thumb piano), and vibrant dancing.
If you’re a fan of Ladysmith Black Mambazo or Sweet Honey in the Rock, you definitely want to check-out this ensemble of young African female performers who celebrate and preserve their culture through innovative music, cleverly mixing past and present.
