Nobuntu is a “Five Part” A’cappella Vocal ensemble made up of young women from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. The name Nobuntu is an African concept that values humbleness, love, purpose, unity and family from a woman’s perspective. Their repertoire is a fusion of traditional Zimbabwean rooted music, Afro Jazz, Gospel and Crossover in pure voices with minimalistic percussion, traditional instruments such as Mbira and some dance movements.
Nobuntu is a production identified by its concept and philosophy, a new generation of young women singers who celebrate and preserve their culture, beauty and heritage through art. This production was founded in 2011 on realizing the absence of an all-female professional A’cappella group in Bulawayo and Zimbabwe as a whole. The ensemble’s mission is the belief that music is the most important and original wheel of change, way of expression of a new generation of young women singers with uniqueness to transcend racial, tribal, religious, gender and economic boundaries.
