My name is Sisanda Myataza . I am a lyricist and vocalist from the Eastern Cape in South Africa. I am a descendent of the late BB Myataza, who was my great great grandfather and a respected South African composer.

Since I can remember music has been a passion of mine. I started singing in school choirs and In later years at university I formed and sang for a  multi cultural band called Vudu . Vudu’s music can be described as having a primordial sound drawing inspiration from Traditional to Nu Jazz and African Elements. In December 2013 we recorded and released our 2nd EP titled "Better Late Than Never" which was well received.

I was responsible for writing the lyrics to all tracks recorded. Vudu Jazz has played countless live gigs and corporate functions with much acclaim. In addition to my band work I am a trained jazz vocalist and have sung at music shows and corporate functions.

 As summer approaches I wish to tour /visit the United Kingdom and share my music and culture whilst participating in a cultural exchange with Musicians in and around the UK. I have observed that at this time of year England is alive with music festivals and I feel that this is the perfect opportunity to pursue this project.

Having visited Bristol briefly in 2013 I have made numerous contacts and it is through these contacts within the music scene that I will be introduced to the key players. As a musician and culture enthusiast,  I hope to have an experience that will facilitate my creative process and inspire me to create another EP.

I have enough money saved for a flight to the UK, now  I am looking for financial help in order to sustain myself once there. Coming from a disadvantaged section of South Africa I require the support of anyone that believes in me and my talent.

I will be documenting my encounters and any person who helps me will receive full credit and appreciation. Upon completion of recording a new EP I will send all contributors a signed limited edition CD- but more importantly you will be contributing to a wealth of experience that can be shared with my community back home.

Light, Love and Blessings
