More about the artist

The essence of Mama Africa meets the spirit of Township music and Afro-Soul in a pint-sized package of a striking, gigantic voice and tons of charm. Nomfusi is a self-taught singer-songwriter, whose music incorporates afropop, afrosoul, gospel and ballads with maskandi guitars and groovy South African township rhythms.

As a young girl, Nomfusi used to accompany her mother to weekly sangoma rituals, where she developed interest in music, singing and dancing. She is now revered across the world for her joyful and energetic stage performances. The tiny singer transforms into a packet of dynamite the moment she holds a microphone.

Nomfusi can go to this place where music becomes much more than what we hear. She can touch your soul by letting down her own guards and just sings from the heart - pure gold. With “The Red Stoep" , her new album released in 2021, Nomfusi invites everyone to experience the stories of her African heritage through the music.

As the preserver of her mother tongue Xhosa, which gives the songs an exotic touch through the special clicking noises when pronouncing them, she consciously writes the lyrics to her songs in English and Xhosa.

She has performed across Europe and Canada at prestigious festivals including WOMAD, FMM Sines, Lugano Jazz, Stimmen and Afrikadey and shared stages with big stars like Angelique Kidjo, Hugh Masekela and Lionel Richie.

Picnic theater

This is a picnic event, or as we like to call is: Picnic theater. That means that you may bring your own food and drinks to the event.

It doesn’t matter what you bring – take-away pizza at one table is followed by oysters and caviar at the next. Bring what you feel like, and don't forget to bring glasses and cuttlery!

Please note that you may not bring food if you have tickets for the balcony, only drinks and snacks.
