Nofenishala Mvotyo

Nofenishala Mvotyo is part of the the Ngqoko Cultural Group, which formed in 1980 and consists of six women, committed to the indigenous music, songs and traditions of the rural Xhosa communities. They are well known in South Africa, and are regularly invited to perform internationally. 

Nofenishala Mvotyo plays friction drum (masengwana) and is a preserver of the Xhosa culture as well as an ambassador of the split-toned, throat deep sounds that normally echo in the mountains of Ngqoko.
