In The Art of the Bow, uhadi and umrhubhe mavens Madosini Mpahleni and Mantombi Matotiyana take the UCT Ibuyambo Orchestra back to the days when the bow embodied a timeless understanding of music and life. Under the direction of Dizu Plaatjies this concert refashions a series of Xhosa bow songs for an ensemble of pan-African traditional instruments

Being an exclusive Decca Classics recording artist, she already released two albums: her debut album “Voice of Hope”, featuring arias and traditional and popular African songs, and “Arias” with a selection of operatic arias and songs from her current repertoire.
