The Event

uMthwakazi has a pioneered a new style of music known as Xho-pera. This style is a synthesis of African Indigenous bow music, Classical, Opera and Choral. Her repertory is mainly derived from Xhosa Bow Music and is firmly entrenched on African dance rhythms. The songs are sung by an extremely dynamic, angelic and operatic (dramatic soprano) voice. The music carries a message which emphasizes optimism, progress and advocates for ubuntu (humanity) as a way of living. The music deeply explores our cultural heritage as Africans and powerfully promotes the use of the Xhosa language.
Opening by Mike Gwenyambira - an African cultural fusion sound (Chimurenga) that represents the Zimbabwean Music Scene and heritage.
