“As soon as people saw them, they were bowled over by their incredible talent, infectious enthusiasm and pure joy” – Nelson Mail

Zulu Love is a group of musicians based in Soweto, Johannesburg. Their deep rich African harmonies blend traditional styles such as isicathamiya with upbeat African soul music.

The singers are truly world class and have sung at the opening ceremony of the London Olympics and the FIFA World Cup in South Africa. They have also starred in global touring productions of major South African musicals such as Stimela the Musical and Spirit and Bones.

Isicathamiya is a Zulu word that translates as ‘in a stalking way’ or ‘cat like’. The singing technique that takes its name was born in the South African mines at the turn of the 20th Century when Zulu workers living in hostels or all-male dorms would secretly sing to each other in low voices. Post-apartheid, it is now sung loudly and proudly and focuses on achieving perfect rhythm and harmony between the singers.

Don’t miss the incredible music and musicianship from South Africa.
