Anticipation mounts as Bokani Dyer shares “Tiya Mowa”, the beautiful second single off his forthcoming album Radio Sechaba

South African pianist, singer and composer Bokani Dyer continues to give a taste of what is to come with his forthcoming album Radio Sechaba on Brownswood Recordings. 

The latest is new single “Tiya Mowa” meaning ‘Qina Moya’ or ‘Be Strong Spirit’. “It is a song about believing that things will get better when going through challenging times,” says the multi award-winning artist.

Sung in the Setswana language “Tiya Mowa” celebrates self-strength over an uplifting mix of deep bass grooves, soulful piano and incandescent vocal harmonies.

Released 12th May 2023, Radio Sechaba addresses themes of nation building and unity, giving an intimate view into South Africa’s multifaceted people and an opportunity for global connection through music. 

The album continues Dyer’s creative journey of making rich and immersive music. It places him amongst the new wave of South African jazz artists, including the likes of Siya Makuzeni and Nduduzo Makhathini. Known to many for his standout contribution to Brownswood’s Indaba Is compilation, Dyer’s multi-faceted influences permeate the set of 15 original songs, resulting in a rewarding listening experience.
