Nobuntuis an a cappella vocal ensemble made up of young women from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Their repertoire is a fusion of traditional Zimbabwean rooted music, Afro Jazz, Gospel and Crossover in pure voices with minimalistic percussion, traditional instruments such as Mbira and some dance movements. Nobuntu is a production identified by its concept and philosophy; a new generation of young Women singers who celebrate and preserve their culture, beauty and heritage through art. This production was founded in 2011 on realizing the absence of an all female professional A Cappella group in Bulawayo and Zimbabwe as a whole. The ensemble’s mission is the belief that music is the most important and original wheel of change, way of expression of a new generation of young women singers with uniqueness to transcend racial, tribal, religious, gender and economic boundaries. Nobuntu celebrates through their songs and dance the identities of being an African woman. Their voices, energy and their breathtaking performance on Stage is an experience that communicates with the human side of anyone.  The release of their debut album in 2013 titled THINA immediately took them beyond the boarders on a one month tour of Austria andGermany playing in concert halls, theatres and festivals such as “Voice Mania” in Vienna and “Trans--‐Vocal” in Frankfurt--‐Oder, Germany. The name “Nobuntu” is an African concept that values humbleness, love, purpose, unity and family from a woman perspective.
