I am a South African storyteller, singer, actress and Insipiration Speaker. I’ve been the lead singer of an incredibly successful pan-African band called Freshlyground for 17 years and have just branched out on my own to tell stories and share with the world my individual journey.
The world is changing. Our old stories are wearing thin. We are telling new stories now and we are making new realities. Ones which inspire us and give us true power.
I have begun a new chapter. It is filled with unchartered territory. I’m excited and a tiny bit terrified. I don’t know what the future holds but I am relaxing into dreaming and moving towards those dreams becoming real.
Everything is story. I catch these stories, some of them my own and many those of others … I re-release them in word and in song.
I live in Cape Town with my husband and two sons and I’m currently working on new plays, a book, new music and curated performances in listening spaces all over the world.
It’s a great time to be alive.
