Jozi Unsigned in association with Joburg City and the Soweto Theatre bring you “It’s Personal with Bongeziwe Mabandla” on Friday September 28.
The evening promises to be an intimate showcase of the alternative-folk musician’s work with a complimentary surprise or two.
Hosted by the colourful media personality Bongani Drama, the “It’s Personal” platform is part of the City of Johannesburg’s efforts to cultivate and support the development of new audiences for the arts. The evening promises to be an intimate showcase of Bongeziwe’s work with a complimentary surprise or two.
This has been a notable year for Bongeziwe Mabandla, who released his second album “Mangaliso”, to rave reviews in February. The offering is a comforting cocktail of popping synths and gripping rhythmics, served on a bed of Mabandla’s signature mellow melodies and sobering lyrics.
Supporting Bongeziwe on the album, and when he takes the stage at the Soweto Theatre, are Tiago Correia Paulo (340ml) and Zebra & Giraffe drummer Mike Wright. The calibre of the musicians and Bongeziwe’s pedigree as a wordsmith culminated in a well-earned win at the 2018 SAMAs in the “Best Alternative Music Album” category.
