About

Reducing all that was then known about African music to ash with his debut album, Bongeziwe Mabandla has, from the very beginning of his journey as a musician, crafted a path of his own. His second album, Mangaliso, propelled him further into the artistic stratosphere, forging an unwavering creative bond with producer Tiago Correia-Paulo, whose masterful tinkerings have only enhanced Bongeziwe’s stellar ability to communicate the universally understood elements of spirituality, truth and love. This year, he returns with a new body of work due for release early 2020, beginning with 'Zange' - which aims to take Bongeziwe and his distinctive approach to African music to places few have dared to tread.
