"...a huge voice (Thabisa) and a personality to match. She has become both a local favorite and an artist to watch for broader exposure in the near future."
-Mark Zaretsky, New Haven Registry
Thabisa is a sensational rockstar who fuses world music with folk, jazz, soul, R&B and Afro-Pop to create an atomic blend of colorful sounds of joy, hope, and longing. A fireball of energy, Thabisa captivates her audiences with her sultry sounds and rhythmic melodies, producing an experience reminiscent of a fresh touch that remains long after she’s gone. This former South African Idols top 18 finisher has written and produced two albums, Eyodidi (2015) and The Journey (2013), and released an expressive new single “Sweet Sorrow” (2020) in the height of the pandemic that uses the six syllable Sanskrit mantra "om mani padme hum” to seek calm and peace of mind in a chaotic world. Thabisa, an international artist with loving fans in South Africa, Europe, and USA, is now preparing for a spring 2023 tour across New England. While on tour, she will share favorites from her first two albums such as “Eyodidi”, “Who Do You Think You Are”, and “Imagine” as well as new work from her third album in the making - a musical offering she calls "her becoming and being" as she promises to “go deeper than flesh and to face self in order to inspire those who feel like giving up.”
