Obabes Bembube Nobuntu’s third studio album was launched in Bulawayo at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe
Hot on the heels of a two months tour of the United States of America, Nobuntu got back to Zimbabwe and give local audiences a taste of their latest offering ‘Obabes Bembube‘ which they launch at the National Art Gallery on 24 November 2018.
Obabes Bembube is Nobuntu’s third studio album and it builds on the success of Thina and Ekhaya which were released in 2013 and 2015 respectively. The title is colloquial for “women of acapella” and the music represents a bold shift from the previous bodies of work which featured a fusion of Afro jazz, Acappella, gospel and traditional folk tracks. Obabes Bembube asserts Nobuntu’s position as a musical force in Imbube (acapella), a genre that was traditionally male domain. In this EPK the artists discuss their thoughts and feelings about this latest offering.
Nobuntu an all-female ensemble has been crisscrossing North America for a couple of weeks, giving audiences a taste of their unique take on imbube as they look to market their latest album, Obabes Bembube to America’s. During the album launch at the National Art Gallery Zimbabwe held between 2 and 4pm on Saturday, the globe-trotting group offered all who attended the launch a chance to buy physical copies of their latest album.
