Nomzi Kumalo is a melodramatic love ballade singer songwriter and spiritual drama poet educated in Fine Art and has managed to change her career direction over the past 3 years. Her education in art and art history, her experience as a visual artist for over 15 years as well as her work as a blogging poet, over a period of 5 years, plays a big part in her musical vocabulary as a solo artist.
Born and raised in South Africa, she expresses life as an interdisciplinary female artist and citizen of Norway. Despite being quite new to the professional music scene, Nomzi is already leaving an incredible stream of unique and gripping concerts. Her Norwegian band first appeared on stage together in 2018 and they have newly welcomed a Bosnian accordionist to the band.
Nomzi Kumalo sings about love and resilience and about how she overcame addiction. Back home they say that it is her singing, her voice and songs that have an Afrikana feel that relate to most African songs usually sung at cultural events and gatherings; and that how she sings puts that emotion of peace, belonging and celebration – like rhythm into her music. There is no place that her genre bending music will not go and she will tell you this herself.
