Simphiwe Dana on tour this autumn 2009

Hailed as 'the best thing to happen to Afro-Soul music since Miriam Makeba' and 'South Africa's Jazz Diva No 1', Simphiwe Dana comes to the UK this autumn accompanied by her 11-piece ensemble to showcase her internationally acclaimed Modern African Soul music. Born and raised in the Eastern Cape, Simphiwe's name means 'gift' and in a short period of time Simphiwe Dana has become one of South Africa's favourite daughters representing her culture and heritage all around the world. Winner of 7 South African Music Awards for her two albums 'Zandisile' (2004) and 'The One Love Movement On Bantu Biko Street' (2006), Simphiwe is one of the most sought-after performers to emerge from South Africa in many years with the future looking even more promising for this hard working artist.
