Simphiwe Dana is more than just a singer – since her debut release Zandisilie in 2004, anyone who heard her music or encountered her on stage has been moved by her fierce determination and grit to not only embed herself into the hearts of her fans through song, but to constantly give back to South Africa at large with her awareness of socio-economic challenges faced in the various communities. She is a voice for the voiceless and shakes political landscapes, whilst the natural God-given talent of her voice and song-writing seem to come as a natural conduit to compliment her personal and more heartfelt passions.
She has just recently completed the recording of what she states to be a dream come true in “The Simphiwe Dana Symphony Experience”, which featured international guests Asa and Concha Buika as well as a 60-piece orchestra. Simphiwe opened the floor to an auspicious audience including Winnie Madikizela-Mandela and a host of other awe-struck guests. The DVD recording is an exceptional production and a true testament to the multi-talented aspects of this stars’ personality.
