With pure, resonant voices and exquisite harmonization, Nobuntu has become the darling of the world’s festival stages. This radiant a cappella quintet is Zimbabwe’s first all-female professional vocal ensemble, a musical force that stakes their claim as practitioners of mbube, the distinct style of South African singing—historically performed by men—recognizable by its rhythmic unity, complex harmonies, and nuanced textures. In inventive performances of Zimbabwean folk, Afro jazz, gospel, and their own original songs, Nobuntu celebrates the vibrant identity of their culture and the belief that music transcends all boundaries.
