Lulu is unfazed by the international spotlight since she was one of the lead singers of Amampondo, South Africa’s neo-traditional sensation. “I have travelled around the world and visited many countries abroad. And what I’ve learnt is that a true artist must serve the people; this is what I want to do. It’s really the only way I can thank God for blessing me with the gift of this voice and an intellect to clutch various musical instruments” she explains. Along with Mbira, Lungiswa plays a variety of African percussion instruments and has performed extensively internationally.
