Called "South Africa's finest female contemporary singer" by The Guardian, Thandiswa Mazwai is known for her electrifying performances. She effortlessly channels legends such as Miriam Makeba, Busi Mhlongo, and Hugh Masekela with compositions that include traditional xhosa music, mbaqanga, and jazz.  

"Thandiswa Mazwai is a rare songbird. When music speaks through her, it helps release the forces of nature and expose the spectrum of human emotion in all those who are present. It doesn’t really matter the style or the context—party or ceremony, punk or dance music, event or festival —Thandiswa simply brings it.”—Afropunk
