Multi-award winning singer, songwriter and producer, Swazi Dlamini, has announced the release of her new album, Soul of Me, during the sixth installment of the Lion of Africa Music Expressions series, taking place on Friday, 4 October 2013, at one of South Africa’s most popular theatres, Yamaha Theatre at YAMAHA Woodmead.
Swazi is no stranger to the music industry, having started her music career as a vocalist for the award-winning gospel group, Joyous Celebration. She rose to stardom with the release of her debut album, My First Love, which earned her the Sama 2004 Best Female artist, and Kora 2004 most promising African Female artist awards, respectively.
Swazi is not only a sensational vocalist, but also an aspiring business woman with Swazitainment Productions – her co-owned company with husband and fellow musician, Tshepo Mngoma.
Soul of Me is a 13 track album that caters to both casual and experienced jazz fans.
“I am extremely excited about my new album. While the release of ‘Soul of Me’ has been long overdue, my fans will certainly agree that it has been worth the wait. Juggling music and business can be challenging, but I truly enjoy every moment of it,” says Dlamini. “This album would not have been possible without the generous support of my fans, family and friends, who have been through thick and thin with me, since the release of my debut album, 10 years ago. I would also like to give a special thanks to Kabomo, Unathi Msengana and other various musicians that have worked with me to make Soul of Me a reality.”
Music fans can look forward to being dazzled by blissful sounds from a transformed Swazi during the sixth installment of the Lion of Africa Music Expressions concert.
Sponsored by Lion of Africa Insurance, in association with Swazitainment Productions, the Lion of Africa Music Expressions series aims to showcase and develop South Africa’s best upcoming, as well as existing musical talent.
