(Titi Luzipo)

The Centre for Jazz and Popular Music will present Being Woman by Titi Luzipo on August 2..

Luzipo has become a household name in the jazz circles of the country. She studied Bachelor of Music, majoring in Jazz Performance at the University of Cape Town. She also did a course in Performing Arts at the University of the Western Cape.

By the tender age of 21, Luzipo had already shared the stage and worked closely with local and international music stars including Feya Faku, McCoy Mrubata, Gloria Bosman, Judith Sephuma, Zonke, Caiphus Semenya, Loyiso Bala, Ringo Madlingozi and George Benson.

“The importance of women in society has become a foreign understanding. The role women play in society should be celebrated more than it currently is. With the recent killings of women in the country, it is only befitting to heal those who have been affected by this terrific ordeal through song and intricate melodies. Being Woman celebrates the art and power of a woman,” says Luzipo.

“The pain endured yet the joy it brings. Most people refer to people as human beings, some say women are women beings. We need to start thinking what it actually means to BE A WOMAN,” she adds.

One of her recent achievements was recently completed a successful tour in Germany and Switzerland with South Africa’s greatest acapella bands – Africappella. Luzipo is now focused on her 1st debut album which will be released in 2017.
