AN ALL-FEMALE music group from Tsholostho based in South Africa called Intomb’ Ezinhle is finding it hard to penetrate the South African market and has now turned to Zimbabwean producers for assistance.
The group was formed in 2011 and recorded its first album titled Semcane in the same year followed by Bazali in 2012, Melisa in 2013 and The Rebirth of Intomb’ Ezinhle in October 2014.
The Rebirth of Intomb’ Ezinhle carries seven tracks, among them Uthando, Ingane Yabantu and the title track Intomb’ Ezinhle.
Speaking to Southern Eye Lifestyle, lead vocalist Meho Ndlovu said the group was failing to get shows in South Africa.
“We are an upcoming group and are asking for promoters to assist us with our dream of becoming one of the most renowned artistes from Tsholotsho.
“In South Africa it is not easy to make a name for yourself.
“Our albums have done fairly well on the market, but we know we could do better,” Ndlovu said.
“We started off under the wing of South Africa-based group Tsheba Boys Abafana BakaJiyani and on the current album we collaborated with all-female group Girls Out ,” she said.
Intomb’ Ezinhle is a house-kwasa group of three talented, young women comprising Ndlovu, Rejoice Hove and Patricia Mvundla.
The group uses music and dance to celebrate their identity as African women.
