About

An album charting new star Pumeza’s journey from South African Township to the Opera Houses of the world .

Growing up during apartheid in the townships of South Africa, Pumeza, by chance, heard singing from an open window at a music school. When she auditioned, the college bought her a plane ticket to London where she was immediately offered a full scholarship for the Royal College of Music.

The album celebrates her journey, with beautiful music from her native South Africa, including the moving lullaby Thula Baba (Hush, My Baby), the anthem Freedom Come all Yee and music from some of the most famous operas, including Puccini's O Mio Babbino Caro.

Pumeza is a leading artist with the Stuttgart Opera.
