Nokuthula

Afro-pop, fusion dance music from Zimbabwe and Beyond! 

Nokuthula plays contemporary and traditional Afro-pop fusion dance music from 

Zimbabwe, South Africa and beyond. The band’s roots are in Zimbabwean-style 

marimba and mbira, but its music is also influenced by jazz, blues, Latin, Afro-Cuban, 

Haitian, and other world music. Nokuthula’s music is joyous, energetic and upbeat 

with driving rhythms and mesmerizing vocals. A Nokuthula performance takes one on 

a musical journey and includes 1,000 year old traditional mbira songs, jazz-
influenced township music and popular dance songs of South Africa, controversial 

anti-war music of Zimbabwe, traditional Cuban and West African drum songs, 

contemporary Zimbabwean compositions, Mozambican folk music, and a hint of 

American jazz.
