nobuntu


The word Nobuntu refers to an African concept that values humbleness, love, unity and family from a woman’s perspective. The ensemble represents a generation of young African women singers who celebrate and preserve their culture, beauty, and heritage through art. It is their belief that music can be an important vehicle for change, one that transcends racial, tribal, religious, gender, and economic boundaries.

Nobuntu, the female acapella quintet from Zimbabwe, perform selections from traditional Zimbabwean songs,  Afro Jazz, and Gospel. They sing with pure voices, augmented by minimal percussion, traditional instruments such as the Mbira, and organic, authentic dance movements. In recent seasons, they performed at festivals and concert halls in Italy, Austria, Germany, Belgium, the Czech Republic and throughout the African continent. Their first United States tour begins this fall.
