Local musician Sasa Mamzangwa Jobodwana is set to premier a listening session of her latest songs on October 29 at House 87 in Quigney.
The talented singer, songwriter, poet, as well as chef, has performed alongside some of the biggest names in the industry, namely Nathi Mankayi, Berita, Zahara and Msaki.
“I have been singing for as long as can remember, but my musical journey only began in 2008.
“There used to be open session events in Quigney where artists could share their writing and various art forms like poetry, dancing and singing,” Jobodwana said.
The artist said her music was aimed at inspiring people of all ages to embrace their true selves.
“I want to be the light at the end of the tunnel, when you hear my music you want to celebrate your life.
“I stand for positivity, I encourage you to know yourself and learn more about your origins.
“Believe in yourself, be true to yourself and become a force to be reckoned with,” said Jobodwana.
She describes her music as soulful and educational, with elements of amapiano, hip-hop and even country.
Jobodwana was one of the Eastern Cape poets chosen to include her work in a book called Poetic Blues, which was compiled at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The book is a collection of poems by many poets from all over SA from different backgrounds, cultures and provinces.
After four years of working on her songs, Jobodwana is set to host another listening session of her music at House 87 in Quigney.
“The aim of this listening session is to showcase my new music and also perform the older songs that my supporters love.
“This is the perfect opportunity for me to get feedback and to share my music and have my supporters tell me what they think of the songs in the moment.
“My aim is to create a space for artists in the Eastern Cape to grow and create music and build the music industry in the province,” said the talented musician.
Tickets for the session are R150 per person, and include lunch.
