“Nobuntu” means humbleness, love, unity, and family from a woman’s perspective and is the name of the female vocal quintet from Zimbabwe that will present the 2019 Pickens World Music Concert at W&L. The group’s wide-ranging repertoire spans Zimbabwean songs, Afro-Jazz and Gospel music and is performed unaccompanied or with minimal percussion and mbira (thumb piano). Nobuntu has performed around the world to critical acclaim and was nominated for Best Musician of the year at the 2015 Zimbabwean International Women Awards in London.
