Jessica Mbangeni shares her Musical Journey at

The Lyric at Gold Reef City

Multi SATMA nominee Jessica Mbangeni will launch her album ‘IGoli’ at The Lyric at Gold Reef City on Friday, 26 September.

Fusing Afro-jazz and Afro-soul elements with traditional Xhosa rhythms, this enterprising young artist has crafted an irresistible medley of music and poetry steeped in the culture of her Eastern Cape upbringing.

IGoli – which when translated means “in Joburg” – is a live album comprising 11 tracks, most of which were composed by Mbangeni, with one track (UmaXhosa) penned by the late jazz great Victor Ntoni, who passed away last year. The CD was produced by Ntoni, Gabriel Stuurman and Lawrence Matshza, and has been independently released through her own label, KwaNtu Entertainment.

Mbangeni’s poetic lyrics speak of the contrast between rural simplicity and the urban rat race, rites of passage, traditional practices and the importance of upholding one’s culture.

Over the years, Mbangeni has toured the world with the Grammy-winning Soweto Gospel Choir, and has also worked with local luminaries such as Hugh Masekela, Sibongile Khumalo, Dolly Rathebe, Abigail Kubeka and Thandi Klaasen.

Join Jessica Mbangeni on an enchanting spiritual journey that will leave you feeling spiritually tuned.
