Mandisa Dlanga, a quiet legend of the South African music industry, has left an indelible mark through her collaborations with a multitude of esteemed musicians. The 10-track album is named Siyakha (We Are Building).
Siyakha sits in an African Adult Contemporary genre embracing several legacy styles (Mbaqanga, Maskandi, R&B / funk, Kwela) imbuing the music with a strong SA flavour. The lyrics are in isiXhosa, isiZulu and English. It was in the mid-1980s that Mandisa's star truly ascended, as she was invited to join the influential group Savuka ("We Have Arisen") as the sole female voice in that ensemble. Embarking on extensive tours across South Africa and internationally, Mandisa found herself collaborating with the iconic Johnny Clegg, their powerful voices intertwining to produce hits that resonated deeply with audiences. One such notable tribute was the song "Asimbonanga. Now, in the month of her 70th birthday, Mandisa is poised to release her own solo album, which serves as a heartfelt tribute to the rich tapestry of South African musical history. The album includes the powerful first single 'Ndim Lo' ( This Is Me).
