Zethe Mdletshe

Popular Ukhozi FM Jazz Host, Mandla Mdletshe, will be hosting some super talented South African lady musicians to celebrate Women's Month on his show on Sunday, August 26.

This month’s special event features women who have been making waves in the music industry with their fresh uncompromising styles.

Zethe Mdletshe will head up a hot trio, which includes, Wandithanda Makandula and Nosihe Zulu. KZN based all-girl band Heels over Head, who have clocked up ten amazing years on the SA performance circuit, will also feature on the show.  

Zethe cracked it as first winner of the new Vodacom Next Level last year. Her debut single Zazi was released in April, swiftly followed by her EP Qhawekazi, which she is currently touring.

Young Wandi, studying Jazz Voice at the esteemed Howard College campus has been ticking some important career boxes including being chosen as the vocalist to head up the National School’s Big Band.

PMB born Nosihe Zulu enjoys a diverse repertoire and adds keys to her voice. Her claim to fame is securing eighth place in the 12th Season of "Idols SA" in 2016. Working towards a degree in music, this young lady is also cooking up some original material while making her presence felt on the local jazz scene, both as bandleader and vocalist.

Heels, as they are fondly known, need no introduction in KZN, and are rapidly making conquests in other provinces due to their determination to stay together and play together. 

Headed up by the ebullient and sweet-voiced songstress Thuli Zama, the all-girl sensation includes accomplished Callie Thompson on keys, Nosihle Nkomo on bass and Rebekah Doty behind the kit.

Tune in on Sunday, between 6 and 8pm for a fabulous concert of real music celebrating young creatives.
