Gloria BosmanLocation: Based in Johannesburg
Soweto-born star Gloria Bosman is nothing short of sensational. With a long list of accolades, including two SA Music Awards (SAMA's), two KORA nominations and eleven SAMA nominations, Bosman has earned her status as one of South Africa’s most celebrated singers.
Although originally trained in opera, Bosman’s singing style is entirely unique. She epitomizes Afro-soul and with every performance, captivates her audience with the sensuality of jazz. She has shared the stage with musical legends Hugh Masekela, Sibongile Khumalo, Moses Molelekwa, Tananas and Sipho Mabuse, to name but a few.
Each of her five albums has been an unmitigated success: Her debut offering,Tranquillity, earned her the coveted award for Best Newcomer as well as nominations for Best Contemporary Jazz Album and Best Female Artist at the 2001 SAMAs. Her second album, The Many Faces Of Gloria Bosman, featured collaborations with some of the finest musicians in South Africa, and has earned her nominations for both Best Southern African Artist and Most Promising Female Artist at the prestigious KORA Awards of 2001, as well as a SAMA nomination for Best Jazz Vocal Album. While Bosman’s album Stop and Think earned her nominations for Best Female Artist and Best Jazz Vocal Album at the 2003 South African Music Awards, Nature’s Dances, a solo album released in 2004, received no fewer than six SAMA nominations as well as winning Bosman the title of Best Female Composer. Her latest offering, Emzini, has proved to be another triumph and besides a warm public reception, has enjoyed widespread radio airplay and television exposure.
Gloria’s unstoppable drive and talent have seen her break boundaries and gain followers in every corner of the country. She has performed on SA's top stages and headlined at numerous national festivals, and is also a frequent performer at the many major Afrikaans music festivals, including KKNK, Aardklop and Skouspel in Sun City.
The concert was fantastic and Gloria and her band are absolutely fabulous people!
