About the Artist

Singer, songwriter, activist, wife, mother… Thabisa does it all. Using her voice as a sound piece for inspiration and change, Thabisa blends elements of African jazz, Afropop, soul and funk in a style that is distinctively her own. Soulful yet sultry, her electrifying voice and boundless energy captivate audiences each time she steps on stage.

Born and raised in South Africa, Thabisa’s music draws heavily from the highs and lows of ordinary life to create an experience that is both personal and uplifting. Her two albums – Eyodidi (2015) and The Journey (2013) – both recorded in South Africa – incorporate the languages of Xhosa, Zulu, Venda, and English, and touch our ears and hearts with words of encouragement and inspiration. Gifted with a name that means “to make others happy,” Thabisa is an artist not to be missed.
