South African born and award-winning Afro-soul artist, Thandiswa Mazwai, unveiled her new all-woman band last week.
Meet King.Tha’s band.
The singer, known for her eclectic voice on iconic South African kwaito group, Bongo Maffin, performed for the first time with her band last Wednesday, in Johannesburg, with special features from her singing sisters Nomsa and Ntsiki Mazwai, as well as Nokwazi.
The singer posted pictures of her new all-woman band on Twitter and Facebook, ‘incase anyone missed them’.
Thandiswa, who has two solo albums under her belt – Zabalaza (2004) and Ibhokwe (2009), held open auditions in August this year, from which lucky seven were chosen.
King.Tha as she refers to herself also launched her personal website, www.thandiswa.com, recently.
