About

Joburg based, songwriter and artist, Senna-Marie is interested in the affective, the clumsiness of feeling,

fight and body into conversation and then song.

Fence Sitter, her first release (5th March 2022) is a collaboration with pianist and producer Ryan Schultze -

Track 2, Lover's Song reaching 35K listens on Spotify.

Senna-Marie performs regularly with combinations of her core band: Ryan Schultze (Piano), Keegan Latham

(Bass), Nicholas Bjorkman (Drums), Pamela King (Backing Vox), Callum Kuhl (Synth) and is currently in

studio preparing her next offering with the above band.

“Most often my songs arrive in more than one voice, they are conversations between people with often

opposing worldviews; people I know and have great affection for. In singing, I soothe the parts of myself that

feel fractured by the lack of shared perspective I witness in my immediate surroundings. Personally, within

my family and friends but also politically within a wounded//healing socio-political landscape.”


His commitment to creative collaboration and live performance has led him to sharing the stage with Albert

Frost, Lady Smith Black Mambazo, Shotgun Tori, Dayne Rothbletz, Femi Koya and Madala Kunene.

Tubatsi is a resident artist at the Nirox Foundation which has provided a space to curate new musical

sound and crafted performance has seen him featured at popular festivals, namely: Basha Uhuru, OppiKoppi,

Mieliepop, Joburg Day Festival, Grahamstown National Arts Festival, Afropunk and Park Acoustics.

Tubatsi Mpho Moloi is a South African born singer- songwriter influenced by the sounds of blues, jazz, rock

and African folk music. His newest work is inspired by artists Guy Buttery, Philip Tabane, Bob Dylan and Zim

Nqawane. His music asks the audience to be open- minded and exploratory as he brings a collaboration of

sound and genre in creating an authentic fusion folk sound.

Tubatsi’s early musical influence came from his childhood home in Soweto, Johannesburg. Later, he was an

actor/dancer/singer in the renowned musical production Umoja. He is currently the lead vocalist for Urban

Village, an experimental band from Soweto, contributing flute, guitar and mbira to the stage.
