Born in Umlazi, vocalist Spha Mdlalose has carved a successful musical career for herself, having worked with the likes of Sibongile Khumalo, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Abigail Kubeka and international pop stars like Josh Groban and Israel Houghton. Her debut album, Indlel’eyekhaya – ‘my way home’ – is about home: the longing for it, appreciation of it, and also the doubts about home. While our current political, economic and social climates feel in turmoil, Mdlalose reminds us that through art, we can pause, reflect and recall that what ultimately matters is the people we are lucky to create homes with.
