Women In Music Concert Series-Sept 9th
TRIBUTE ‘BIRDIE’ MBOWENI
South Africa’s Tribute ‘Birdie’ Mboweni has joined a new breed of soul musicians that are putting their own modern take on the classic sound and doing it justice. The petite singer has worked diligently to carve a path that ensure that she too has a place in the music industry. Besides her album titled ‘Birdie’ being her debut offering, Tribute has long carved her niche as a performing artist having serenaded audiences in the Middle East (Qatar and Dubai) where she took up artist residencies playing with a jazz band featuring some of South Africa’s great musicians . No stranger to the stage, she has performed at international events such as COP17, the Grahamstown National Arts Festival, where she gave a stellar performance and receiving great reviews for her soulful offering, Her music expressed deep feelings and is profoundly emotional, jazzy, ethno and yet so soulful.
