(Zoe The Seed)

Zoe the Seed is a Durban-based musician who is currently working on an experimental sound that carries a distinct texture of African modal sounds and contemporary jazz. Her vocal expressions tackle the deepest emotion to the listener, since everyday experiences people go through influences her writing. The lyrical content promotes love, respect and stands against women and child abuse. Fusing different styles like jazz and hip hop beats has been her way to interest and introduce young people to the jazz genre.

An accomplished band will be joining Zoe The Seed with Sbu Mashiloane on keys, Dalisu Ndlazi on bass and Sbu Zondi on drums. Zoe the seed has shown immense interest in bringing music awareness in communities and schools. As a facilitator at the Bat Centre she was exposed to being a music educator, a mentor and a friend to her students. Through the support of Issurpportdoyou and Concerts SA, she has provided workshops to facilities like Amatikulu primary school and Luthuli museum, educating about jazz music and how it affects our music industry.
