An Afro-Pop Ensemble Playing Music From Zimbabwe, South Africa and Beyond!
Nokuthula, based in Nederland, Colorado, plays contemporary and traditional music from Zimbabwe, South Africa and beyond. The band’s roots are in Zimbabwean-style marimba and mbira, but its music is also influenced by jazz, blues, Latin, Afro-Cuban, Haitian, and other world music. The band’s music is joyous, energetic and upbeat with driving rhythms and mesmerizing vocals. Nokuthula’s members bring together a lifetime of experience to form a not-so-traditional Afro-pop ensemble with just enough of a musical edge to keep you moving.
Nokuthula means “Mother of Peace” in the Ndebele language of Zimbabwe. We hope that our music helps to spread peace throughout the world.
