Popular Ukhozi FM Jazz Host Mandla Mdletshe will be hosting some super talented South African lady musicians to celebrate Women’s Month on his show on August 26, 2018. Presented by The Headroom and supported by Concerts SA, this month’s special event features women who have been making waves in the music industry with their fresh uncompromising styles.

With power-packed singer Zethe Mdletshe fronting up a hot trio, two strong young vocalists will also be featured, namely Wandithanda Makandula and Nosihe Zulu. Clocking up ten amazing years on the South African performance circuit, KZN based all-girl band Heels over Head are also on the bill of fare.

Pietermaritzburg-born Nosihe Zulu enjoys a diverse repertoire and adds keys to her voice. Her claim to fame is securing eighth place in the 12th Season of SA Idols in 2016. Working towards a degree in music, this young lady is also cooking up some original material while making her presence felt on the local jazz scene, both as band leader and vocalist.

Heels, as they are fondly known, need no introduction in KZN, and are rapidly making conquests in other provinces due to their determination to stay together and play together. Headed up by the ebullient and sweet voiced songstress Thuli Zama, the all-girl sensation includes accomplished Callie Thompson on keys, Nosihle Nkomo on bass and Rebekah Doty behind the drum kit.
