Female acappella group Nobuntu, was nominated for Best Musician of the Year at the Zimbabwe International Women Awards in London in 2015. The quintet has performed at festivals and concert halls in Italy, Austria, Germany, Belgium, Czech Republic, and throughout the African continent. The word Nobuntu is an African concept that values humbleness, love, unity and family from a woman's perspective. The ensemble represents a new generation of young African women singers who celebrate and preserve their culture, beauty, and heritage through art. Their mission is the belief that music can be an important vehicle for change, one that transcends racial, tribal, religious, gender, and economic boundaries. Nobuntu has released three recordings--Thina (2013), Ekhaya (2016) and Obabes beMbube (2018). The group has made dozens of television and radio appearances throughout Africa and Europe promoting these recordings and the culture of their homeland.
