Afro-Soul singer, Zahara, performs live as the first act to open up the Lyric Theatre’s monthly music event series; “Kaya FM and Bassline Live Present”.
After a line-up in 2017, the collaborative series has seen artists such as Thandiswa Mazwai, Simphiwe Dana, The Soil, Bongeziwe Mabandla, Oliver Mthukudzi and New York’s Tortured Soul and many others leave audiences hungry for more. With the rich selection of artists being playlisted on Kaya FM, producers of the event are excited for the year ahead and Gospel-influenced Afro-Soul sensation Zahara is officially the first artist in 2018’s line up.
Zahara is no stranger to the airwaves. With only 6 years behind her as an official recording artist, this singer/songwriter has firmly placed her stamp in the hearts of music fans around the continent. Growing up in a highly musical environment, she honed her skills from as young as 6 years old by singing at Sunday School and in various school drama productions – but it was only after her education that she took her love of music to the next level, by teaching herself
the guitar and pouring her heart and soul into her self-penned, highly personal songs.
Her discovery and subsequent path to fame was fast and took her straight to the top, making her a multi-platinum selling artist almost overnight, yet not without relentless and continuous touring, and self-dedication. Her brand new album Mgodi, sung in English and isiXhosa, was released in October 2017 and
reached gold status within 6 hours of its release, making her one of the fastest selling Afro-Soul artists in South Africa at the moment.
