(Nosihe Zulu)

Nosihe Zulu brings Eshowe authentic, raw music with a jazzy pop flavour.

In association with Concerts SA, iSupport Music Business presents a performance by vocalist and composer Nosihe Zulu who will be appearing on May 1, 2019, at Cubanitas in Eshowe.

Zulu is an eclectic and engaging singer, based in Durban and is a student at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, pursuing a degree in Jazz and Popular Music. As she completes her degree, she spends her time touring with her band and performing in and around South Africa.

“People can expect an afternoon of authentic raw music with a jazzy pop flavour,” says Zulu.

Apart from growing up in a musical home, her interest in singing began in her formative years, when she excelled in singing in school choirs. Once selected to join the Pietermaritzburg Children’s Choir in her primary school years, her musical aspirations continued to grow throughout her high school years. She won numerous singing competitions and toured throughout KZN. Zulu’s diversity gave her the opportunity to share the stage with many artists such as Arthur Mofokate, Emtee, Fifi Cooper, Sjava, Bucie, AKA, Unathi.

As a regular on the South African festival circuit, she has performed at major events, such as White Mountain Festival and Music in the Hills. The highlight of her career thus far was her participation in Season 12 of the international singing competition Idols, South Africa in 2016.

Zulu is passionate about making a mark and sharing her love for music and is by no means slowing down the momentum gained over the last few years. She has also launched an exciting new venture called #uncutexclusive, through this platform she will be sharing her unreleased music and intimate concerts and sharing her life and experience with her followers.

Joining Zulu on stage at Cubanitas are Obakeng Thamage on keys, Freeman Gumede on bass guitar and Lesedi Tlholoe on drums. On Thursday May 2, Nosihe Zulu will perform for various primary and high schools in the area.

These concerts are part of the Concerts SA Venue Circuit which aims to foster a love and support for live music in our communities, as well as anchor small and medium sized venues in urban and rural Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, and the Western Cape.

The concert takes place at 14h00 on May 1 at Cubanitas, 60 Osborn Road, Eshowe. Tickets R20 available at the door.
