Nobuntu is a five member all-female multi award winning acapella/imbube ensemble from the city of Bulawayo in Zimbabwe. Our music repertoire is a fusion of traditional Zimbabwean sounds, mainly rooted in Afro-Jazz, Gospel and Crossover in pure voices, with minimalistic percussion, dance movements and traditional instruments such as mbira. We comprise of Zanele Manhenga, Duduzile Sibanda-Mothobe, Heather Dube, Joyline Sibanda and Thandeka Moyo. Nobuntu was birthed in 2011 upon realising the non-existence of an all-female imbube group in Bulawayo and Zimbabwe as a whole. Our defining acclamation has been breaking through what has historically been perceived as a male dominated genre. We are one of the few female imbube groups around the world. Our multilingual attitude to music has enabled us to capture the audience of many as we sing in Ndebele, Shona, Tonga and English languages that are popular locally regionally and internationally.
