DURBAN DIVAS (article first published : 2000-06-17)

The Durban Divas perform a cultural crossover of township music to western music from early 30’s to 80’s showcasing a mixed repertoire of jazz, mgrashiyo, mbaranga and disco music.

The singers are Nonhlanhla Wanda, Mpume Mthomeni and former Playhouse Singers member Pinkie Mtshali. For the first time, the divas will present their sophisticated and entertaining show with a four piece band which has played internationally with different artists. Band members are Mdu Mhlongo (keyboards), Bongani Nkwanyana (bass guitar), Babs Mokoena (lead guitar) and Ray Chiliza (drums). Dumsani “Crocodile” Dlamini (ex Sarafina) is the choreographer of the show.

The Durban Divas will appear in the Durban Arts free lunch-hour concert on the City Hall Steps on June 28 and thereafter will be playing at the Royal Hotel’s Backstage venue from July 5 to 22 with shows from Wednesdays to Saturdays. To book, contact Themi at the Royal Hotel on 304-0357, Ext 2113.
