Bongeziwe Mabandla thrills Womex with emotional performance of  “Wena”

Bongeziwe Mabandla added yet another important appearance to his growing list of international live shows when he took to the stage at WOMEX 19 in Tampere, Finland in October.

His packed-out set included an emotional performance of “Wena”, off his South African Music Award-winning album, Mangaliso, and featured Tiago Correia-Paulo and Robin Brink.

WOMEX – the World Music Expo – is the most international music meeting in the world and the biggest conference of the global music scene. Mabandla was one of a small selection of performing artists at this year’s event – adding yet further impetus to his international career. He was also recently profiled in Songlines, a longstanding British-based magazine that features music from around the world.
