Lungiswa Plaatjies: Live Session

A three legged African potjie pot (Ngxawu) full of delicious sounds, concocted by: Lungiswa Plaatjies, Hilton Schilder and Vuyo Katsha. A once off magical collaboration of three wonderful South African musicians. This really got to the heart and roots of South African music. The opportunities to see 3 individuals of this stature cooking together don’t come often!

Lungiswa Plaatjies is Cape-born-native raised in Langa Township, Cape Town, South Africa. She is tall, elegant and her main preoccupation is her mission to catapult the music and culture of her people into the limelight. Armed with an mbira, powerful and unique vocal cords, Lungiswa is an immensely fresh South African talent.

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. It was such an honor to have been able to host and capture this experience.
