    About her latest album Sankofa, which was released on May 10, Thandiswa says: “Sankofa in the Ghanaian language Twi means to go back and fetch what’s been left behind – what is important, what honours you, and what needs healing. How apt that as I prepare to launch this new work, my seminal album Zabalaza, celebrates 20 years. For me, this is the year of Sankofa.” Recorded in Johannesburg, Dakar, and New York, the album combines archival Xhosa music, jazz and west African rhythms. It includes songs produced by Meshell Ndegeocello, Chris Bruce, Nduduzo Makhathini, Tendai Shoko and Thandiswa.

    About the Sankofa Tour, Thandiswa says “I am so excited to share this new music with my fans. It is such a privilege to still be able to do what I love after 30yrs in this industry. Ndibulela ngazozibini for all the love and support. We promise a show full of love and celebration. Thank you to Castle Milk stout, a brand entrenched in the preservation and celebration of tradition and culture, for supporting this tour. Thank you for supporting women’s dreams, and the dream of us African people. With every special gig we do we create jobs in the creative industry. So, thank you Castle Milk Stout for having faith in what we can create.”
