No female artist has managed to fuse ethno-soul, jazz with ragga in one song as this 24-year old singer, songwriter, Nkulee Dube has done in such a short space of time since entering this challenging and yet exciting industry.

Born to the family a music legend, Nkulee Dube has big shoes to fill to preserve and sustain the name of her late father, Lucky Dube. Nkulee, whose music can be classified as ‘ethno-ragga’ fused with soul and jazz, is no stranger to the performance circuit and the musicindustry; she has been a backing singer and dancer for the late Lebo Mathosa and later Ntando Bangani.

She glides and slides with ease in between her songs as she traverses between ragga and ethno-soul as if she was born on stage. As a guest artist and backing vocalist, Nkulee has been part of her late father’s performing band ‘One People’, and Nkulee has performed at major festivals in Australia, Holland, Papua New Guinea, French Guyana, Suriname,etc.

A powerful performer, just like her father, Nkulee has shared the stage with the Jamaican reggae/ragga artist Sizzla in countries such as South Africa, Uganda, and Kenya.

She is one to watch and could easily fill the shoes of the greatest South African performers, such as Brenda Fassie, Lebo Mathosa and of course her beloved dad Lucky Dube. Most importantly, Nkulee is a blessed artist in her own right with her own style and has many miles to travel. Her new album is just being released.

Known for their quality live performances, clean records, and heavy touring lifestyle, SYNRGY is infectiously growing as a recognized name among the NW Reggae Music Scene.

And Polynesian band EFF BEE CEE opens up the evening’s festivities with roots reggae. On the rise, this nine-piece band boasts beautiful vocals and the true island vibe.
