With pure, resonant voices and exquisite harmonization, Nobuntu has become the darling of the world’s festival stages. This radiant a cappella quintet is Zimbabwe’s first all-female professional vocal ensemble, a musical force that stakes their claim as practitioners of mbube, the distinct style of South African singing—historically performed by men—recognizable by its rhythmic unity, complex harmonies, and nuanced textures. In inventive performances of Zimbabwean folk, Afro jazz, gospel, and their own original songs, Nobuntu celebrates the vibrant identity of their culture and the belief that music transcends all boundaries.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
