DURBAN singer-songwriter, poet and guitarist, Mbijana Sibisi (pictured), will be performing at Seaman’s Corner, Hammarsdale on Saturday, April 2 and at the Distillery 031 on Thursday, April 7.
The music that he writes is influenced by the colors of life, both dark and lighter shaded, since in his songs you will find stories of hardship as well beautiful stories of love.
In his lyrics he approaches society with a critical eye. His lyrics are composed in English and isiZulu languages. His musical activities seem to be loudest in Durban and in Belgium, for this is where the artist performs the most since he has been building up his solo career in 2012. He has made numerous interview features on local radio stations.
The gigs are supported by Concerts SA and the eThekwini Municipality and brought to you by iSupport Music Business.
