Ever since she burst into the public’s consciousness as the lead vocalist and songwriter of Award-winning group Bongo Maffin, Thandiswa Mazwai has been an indelible part of the South African cultural landscape. Her musical beginnings, however, were not quite as auspicious - her first attempt to get noticed occurred at the Shell Road to Fame talent show in a move that must be puzzling the judges to this day, Thandiswa didn’t even make it to the semi-finals round. She did, however, catch the eye of musician and producer Don Laka, who arranged to include her in a project he was working on - Bongo Maffins' sophomore album.
After almost eight years with Bongo Maffin, Thandiswa finally resolved to begin work on a solo project. Her first album titled Zabalaza illuminated Thandiswa as a well-rounded singer-songwriter. Since then she has crept into the hearts of fans all over the world and blessed them with sound tracks that will outlast the test of time.
Join Thandiswa at Bassline as she celebrates her birthday with an amazing line-up followed by a live performance by the queen herself.
The line-up includes Moonchild Sanelly, NomiSupasta, Ntombethongo, Nokwazi Dlamini and more.
