UK-BASED artiste, Sisa Senkosi has re­leased a sin­gle, her first, ti­tled Amahlolanyama.

The five minute track fea­tur­ing Zin­jaziyam­luma is a ded­i­ca­tion for High­landers Foot­ball Club that is cel­e­brat­ing 90 years of ex­is­tence.

The Mag­wegwe-born songstress at­taches strong cel­e­bra­tory emo­tions in the song as she sings from a nos­tal­gic view of grac­ing Emagu­meni.

Sisa Senkosi said the sin­gle is a teaser for her de­but al­bum to be launched dur­ing mid De­cem­ber.

“The sin­gle is taken from my up­com­ing al­bum which I am putting fi­nal touches to and should be out in time for Christ­mas.

“I’m very ex­cited by the whole pro­ject, it’s un­be­liev­able. Be­sides I think Bulawayo needs more women mu­si­cians and pulling to­gether will only make us stronger I be­lieve,” she said.

She added that the song was more of a com­mem­o­ra­tion of a life­style she no longer en­joys since she is based abroad.

“When I ap­proached Zin­jaziyam­luma with the idea he al­ready had the same idea so we de­cided to do it. For me it was a matter of pay­ing trib­ute to a part of my life that I don’t see much of now due to be­ing based abroad,” she said. She said High­landers was her source of pride and in­spi­ra­tion since her child­hood, thus she had no dif­fi­culty in com­ing up with the song. “Hav­ing been born and bred koBu­l­awayo Bosso has sort of been part of my life. I be­lieve it is one of the last stand­ing sym­bols of ubuntu. So I thought why not sing a spe­cial ded­i­ca­tion to them for the con­tri­bu­tion they have made in our society,” she said. Sisa Senkosi has worked along­side Woza pe r form­ing A r t s , Gra s s ro ot s Theatre pro­duc­tions, Siyaya Arts and she is also a co – founder of the UK based arts group, Flame Lily Arts. The mu­si­cian has per­formed at the Na­tional Arts Merit Awards (NAMA), Glastonbury Fes­ti­val, WOMAD Fes­ti­val, Llan­gollen Fes­ti­val and many other international fes­ti­vals.
