Bongeziwe Mabandla releases stunning lyric video, Bambelela Kum

Bongeziwe Mabandla, has just released a lyric video for Bambelela Kum that captures the simplicity of this standout song off his recently released new album, iimini.

Shot in France by producer Tiago Correia-Paulo during Mabandla’s late 2019 European tour, the video is a stunning distillation of a song Mabandla describes as his favourite on iimini – and which captures the essence of human relationships in a meditative incantation (“hold on to me/I will hold on to you/we are all that we have”) that’s accompanied by just Mabandla’s acoustic guitar.

“Bambelela is my favourite song on the album. It’s a simple song with very few words but it means a lot to me,” explains Mabandla.
