Bongeziwe Mabandla Upcoming Live Dates

Urban-African Folk flagbearer, Bongeziwe Mabandla, gets 2017 underway with a slate of live performances and the release of a stunning new single.

The critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter will play alongside Alice Phoebe Lou at the Goodluck Bar in Johannesburg (February 5th). In addition to this, Mabandla will be playing two solo shows in Cape Town on the 14th and 16th of February at Cafe Roux’s new CBD location for a very special showcase of his heartfelt music and lyrics. Each performance will showcase his new band, which includes Tiago Correia-Paolo (340ml and Tumi and the Volume) and Mike Wright (Zebra and Giraffe).

Correia-Paolo is the producer of Mabandla’s much-anticipated album, Mangaliso, due for release in Autumn 2017. The build-up to Mangaliso’s release starts with the first single “Ndokhulandela”, a lush, hypnotic track that places Mabandla’s exceptional vocals centrestage.

Mangaliso is the first album out of a recently inked record deal with Universal Music that acknowledges Mabandla’s exceptional talent, first heard on his 2012 South African Music Award nominated debut Umlilo.

Mabandla’s February performances give music lovers the opportunity to see him with his band, playing a selection of songs off Umlilo and the upcoming Mangaliso. Tickets are limited so book now.
