South Aftrican pianist, composer Nduduzo Makhathini invokes creative mysticism on uNomkhubulwane

South African pianist, composer, philosopher, and healer Nduduzo Makhathini travels beyond any existing notion of music-making to offer his most profound vision of creative mysticism yet with uNomkhubulwane, his stunning 11th studio album which is his third to be released on Blue Note Records following 2020's Modes of Communication: Letters From The Underworlds and 2022's In The Spirit Of Ntu.

The transcendent three-movement suite — which pays homage to the Zulu Goddess uNomkhubulwane and explores Africa's tragic history of oppression — features Makhathini's trio with bassist Zwelakhe-Duma Bell le Pere on bass and drummer Francisco Mela. The music is both an offering and an invitation to humanity to cultivate ways of being that strive for freedom and balance.
