Thandiswa Presents Highly Anticipated Single 'Kulungile' Featuring Nduduzo Makhathini from Upcoming Album 'Sankofa'

The wait is finally over for fans of South African musical icon Thandiswa as she announces the release of her latest single, ‘Kulungile’, featuring the acclaimed Nduduzo Makhathini. The much-awaited track is set to drop on April 12, offering an exciting glimpse into Thandiswa’s forthcoming album, ‘Sankofa’.

‘Kulungile’ carries the profound message of overcoming past wounds and finding peace within. ‘Kulungile’, translating to ‘it is well’ in isiXhosa, reflects on her journey, reminding us that pain fades and wounds can be mended.

The release of ‘Kulungile’ sets the stage for Thandiswa’s eagerly awaited album, ‘Sankofa’, scheduled to launch on May 10 2024. To celebrate the album's release, Thandiswa will deliver an unforgettable performance at Carnival City, Johannesburg, on May 11. The concert will feature tracks from ‘Sankofa’ but also highlights from Thandiswa’s iconic debut solo album, ‘Zabalaza’, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in March.

Tickets for the Carnival City performance are available for purchase through Computicket, offering fans the opportunity to experience Thandiswa's transcendent live performances firsthand.

Thandiswa mentions: "Sankofa in the Ghanian language Twi means to go back and fetch what’s been left behind - what is important, what honours you, and what needs healing. Kulungile is about healing some of the traumas that we experience as children. Many of us have faced rejection, abandonment, and sexual violence. This song is for that child within that seeks justice, comfort and healing.”

Thandiswa’s recent success includes her acclaimed Tiny Desk Concert, where she mesmerised audiences with her raw talent and impassioned performance. During the concert, she dedicated the opening song to the "beautiful and ever-resilient people of South Africa," further cementing her connection with her homeland and its people.

With ‘Kulungile’ and the upcoming album ‘Sankofa’, Thandiswa continues to push boundaries and inspire audiences with her unique blend of music and message.
