Simphiwe Dana

I am Ready to Fly

Insomnia has struck again , so with no sleep in sight this is what I created this morning ; Simpiwhe Dana, An African Futuristic Black bird….. Beautiful, soulfully herself and never apologetic… She is who she is…
This is a short excerpt from her website~
Simphiwe Dana has received an impressive 6 SAMA Awards, including Best New Comer in 2004 and Album of The Year in 2007 for The One Love Movement on Bantu Biko Street.

Her new album Kulture Noir comprises thirteen new songs and builds on Dana’s trademark fusion of deep African musical roots, inspired melodies and a stunningly unique contemporary voice. The result is another beautifully crafted collection to add to the South African songbook.

The first single from Kulture Noir, Ndimi Nawe, is a track that, like so much of Dana’s work, defies genre. Described by Dana herself as “meditative and celebratory,” the haunting Ndimi Nawe is a textured blend of light and dark over which Dana invokes the spirits and finds strength.
“I stand with you in your moments of joy and with you in your
moments of pain – and find strength,” explains Simphiwe Dana on Ndimi Nawe.
