About the Artist

Vusi Mahlasela is simply known as "The Voice" in his home country, South Africa, and many celebrate him for his distinct, powerful voice and his poetic, optimistic lyrics. His new album Say Africa is full of songs of freedom, of revolution, of love and of life. Raised in the Mamelodi Township, where he still resides, Vusi became a singer-songwriter and poet-activist at an early age, teaching himself how to play guitar and later joining the Congress of South African Writers. After When You Come Back, his popular debut on BMG Africa, Vusi was asked to perform at Nelson Mandela’s inauguration in 1994 and continues to spread Mandela’s message as an official ambassador to the President’s’s HIV/AIDS initiative, 46664.

His new album, Say Africa, produced by Taj Mahal and recorded at Dave Matthews Band’s studio in Charlottesville, VA, captures Vusi’s hope for the future of Africa: ‘Let all those who share in Mandela’s greatest wish—to one day see an Africa that is at peace with herself—SAY AFRICA.’
