Nobuntu set for Swazi­land

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Show­biz Re­porter

FRESH from a suc­cess­ful Euro­pean tour, Nobuntu, the all-fe­male im­bube group, is now pre­par­ing to travel to Swazi­land next month.

The en­sem­ble, which is made up of Duduzile Sibanda, Than­deka Moyo, Joy­line Sibanda, Zanele Man­henga and Heather Dube, will leave the coun­try on Septem­ber 4 for a per­for­mance at the Al­liance Fran­caise in Mba­bane on Septem­ber 8 and 9. They will also at­tend a work­shop in Mba­bane on Women in Arts.

One of the group mem­bers Zanele Man­henga said they were thrilled to be shar­ing their mu­sic with fol­low­ers from other parts of the re­gion.

“We’re ex­tremely ex­cited to be per­form­ing in Mba­bane. To cel­e­brate women’s month, we’re go­ing to be hold­ing a work­shop with women in arts dur­ing our stay there,” said Man­henga.

An­other mem­ber Than­deka Moyo said: “All our songs high­light dif­fer­ent sce­nar­ios in our Zim­bab­wean and African setup. We use dif­fer­ent lan­guages to cel­e­brate the beauty of be­ing Zim­bab­wean above any­thing else.”

The group is rid­ing high with their sec­ond al­bum Ekhaya. Their sin­gles, Woza Ngane and Narini have been do­ing well on lo­cal ra­dio charts. Last month, the group toured Italy, Aus­tria and Ger­many where they were re­ceived well by au­di­ences there.
