Being Woman is Becoming – Titi Luzipho tells her story

Posted by radio On April - 3 - 2019

Port Elizabeth born Singer/songwriter Titi Luzipho has released her brand new single Being Woman from her forthcoming album. Titi is a trained musician, creative and musical director whose love for music knows no bounds.

She comes from a musical family, her late grandfather, CB Qwesha was a musical genius and composer. His greatests work – Ndisindise O Jehova, Save me Oh Thou Jehova became one of the world’s greatest hymns. Titi became a household name in the Jazz circles across South Africa, having worked with the likes of Simphiwe Dana, Thandiswa Mazwai, Siphokazi, Gloria Bosman, Siphokazi, Caiphus Semenya and Loyiso and Zwai Bala among other greats.

 

“I am so blessed to have this gift and be able to share it with the masses. Being Woman is a powerful song celebrating women, acknowledging the plight of women in an unjust world. This song is so personal to me, it took a lot for me to birth it and I hope it heals, empowers, motivates and inspires a lot of women and men.”

 

Titi has worked with a number of incredible artists on her upcoming album with Luyanda Madope on production and keys. The album also features Ringo Madlingozi, who is one of Titi’s strong influences.

 

Titi counts it a blessing to have been mentored by the Grammy award nominated producer Zwai Bala. Together they worked on honing, nurturing and harnessing Titi’s vocal ability. How can she fail when she was not only mentored by the eldest Bala brother but by the late great Dr Winston Ntshona and Dorothy Masuka and her equally talented mother Vuyelwa Qwesha-Luzipho.

 

Now Titi has built quite a following introducing and refining the concept “#SongsMyMotherTaughtMe” – a tribute to the massive musical influence her mother, well known songstress Vuyelwa Qwesha has had on her life. She also started a movement #BeingWomxn as part of the eradication of femicides. This movement seeks to heal and celebrate women who are victims of gender-based violence, misogyny and patriarchy.

 

Titi is a gem! The future of jazz is in great hands’
