UKZN music student and lecturer, Ms Slindo Zondo, recently performed her first solo concert at the Centre for Jazz and Popular music on the Howard College campus.
‘Performing at this concert was exciting and intimidating as it was a mixture of genres. It is something that I have always wanted to do onstage,’ she said.
She performed four afro-pop compositions with a touch of RnB and Opera, with two of the music items tackling women and child abuse. ‘One of the songs is called Uzibeleni? which simply means ‘why are you ignorant?’.

Other songs had a touch of hip-hop and isicathamiya,’ said Zondo.
