Named for the African concept of humbleness, love, purpose, unity and family, Nobuntu is Zimbabwe’s celebrated all-female, a cappella quintet that has drawn international acclaim for its unique blend of indigenous folk, Afro-jazz and gospel. Performing with the Mbira (thumb piano) and traditional African dance, the group aims to celebrate and preserve its culture, beauty and heritage through art. Nobuntu was recently nominated Musician of the Year at the International Women Awards and has performed throughout Europe, Asia and Africa. The group stops in Memphis during its second US tour to offer music as a vehicle for change, transcending racial, religious, gender and economic boundaries.
