Bongeziwe Mabandla is back with new music, and seems to be building up quite a bit of steam in the run up to the release of his new album.
Titled “Mangaliso,” the new album has been produced by Tiago Correia-Paolo of 340ml & Tumi and The Volume fame. Tiago has also slotted in pretty nicely as part of Bongeziwe’s band. Accompanied by Mike Wright (of Zebra & Giraffe), the trio’s experience is evident, and the performance is slick.
Bongeziwe’s new material combines his trademark “Urban Traditional Folk” sound with a modern electronic twist, which supports his unique and incredible voice well, and brings the artists into that sweet spot where old meets new in an interesting way.
Watch Bongeziwe Mabandla perform “Ndokulandela,” the first single from his forthcoming album, Mangaliso.
