We are joined by Belgium based Zulu folk singer Mijana Sibisi. His sound has been described as a combination of folk music and storytelling. The singer has described himself as a social commentator who tries to the stories of the people while touching on social issues. He joins us to chat about relocating to Belgium, and his current tour.
“I am inspired by musicians who I meet in Brussels, travelling around Europe and beyond, with their backpacks and musical instruments sharing their songs in every city they get to.”
Mijana used to be a qualified dental nurse until he quit his job to fully focus on his passion of being a musician, back in 2013, at the age of 22 years old. Three years later he released his first EP which was titled ‘History’. Since then he has toured throughout South Africa, Spain, Belgium, Uganda, Reunion Island, and France.
He is currently on tour in South Africa, performing in provinces such as the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, and KwaZulu-Natal. The tour is in association Concerts SA and iSupport Music Business. It will go on until the 1st of May 2019. He has said that in tour people can expect more of an experience to be encumbered in, rather than just a show. They can also expect new music from him, as the line up will include original music as well as some jazz and pop, to show the theme of the tour, which is migration.
