iSupport and Luthuli Museum kick off virtual concert series with soulful, emotive vocalist Nosihe.

iSupport Creative Business, in collaboration with The Luthuli Museum and supported by Concerts SA, presents vocalist Nosihe in a virtual concert from October 8 at 15h00. Tickets are R20 and available on, where the concert will also be available to view.

Afro-soul artist from Durban, Nosihe has organically grown in her artistic expressions to be an eclectic soulful power force, whilst solidly centred in her environment to interpret and translate through songs and its imagery. One can describe her sound as soulful and emotive; her songs are flamboyant and filled with her vibrant persona. She is drawing from classical, jazz and gospel tapestry of rhythms. She uses music as the powerful medium to articulate emotions and tell stories of sadness, love, betrayal, heartache and happiness. The artist is known for always looking for collaborations with other art forms, such as fashion, photography and design.

“It is great to be given the opportunity to sing again. It has been an interesting season of lockdown, and I miss the human interaction,” says Nosihe.

She brings an impressive set featuring her self-written compositions in which you can hear she has stories to tell. Nosihe is joined by her band Ayanda Mfiki on the keys, Freeman Gumede on bass guitar and Lesedi Tlholoe on drums. Also featuring in the concert is poet Nandile Dube, member of the Uhuru Poetry in Motion group at Luthuli. Dube hails from Thembeni in the Ilembe district.
