Multi award winning young jazz pianist and vocalist, Thandi Ntuli, was born in Soshanguve, one
of South Africa’s largest townships. Located north of the administrative capital Tshwane. She
started playing the piano at the age of 4. However, it was only in high school that she developed
any real desire to become a professional musician. Thandi Ntuli is the niece of multi-
instrumentalist and lead vocalist of the historic Afro fusion band Harari, Selby Ntuli.
The release of her sophomore album, “Exiled” released on 1 February 2018, coincided with the
start of her year as the recipient of the coveted Standard Bank Young Artist for Jazz award.
True to her eclectic musical influences, the music goes beyond the confines of genre with
references from Mali and Ethiopia and earned her a spotlight by Apple Music as one of the
artists to watch for 2018. The album also includes a bit of spoken word, showing the diversity in
her expression. “Her lyrics – on subjects of love, fellowship and postcolonial reckoning – spring
from a similar insistence on inquiry.” (The New York Times – Giovanni Russonello)
It is this display as not only a talented pianist and vocalist but as an intriguing composer that has
seen her work featured in a number of films locally and abroad. Most notable amongst these is
the remake of Spike Lee’s She’s Got To Have It on Netflix.
