According to TRUELOVE MAQ, The Soil, SA’s most loved a capella band, has announced the impending absence of their only female vocalist Buhle Mda. “I have decided to heed to my ancestral calling and how long I will be gone for will be determined by my progress with my mentor” stated Buhle Mda. This is all that the bubbly songstress wishes to share until she is done with her initiation.
Following this announcement, the group is in search of a female vocalist who will join The Soil as of March 2016. The search is open to all female vocalists who believe they have what it takes to be a part of the cheeky yet confidently urbane band.
Interested vocalists are encouraged to visit The Soil’s Facebook page as this is the platform they will use to submit their audition videos. 10 videos will be selected and those vocalists will be invited to audition live for the band and the Native Rhythms stakeholders.
The new vocalist will share the stage with Buhle and the rest of the band in February 2016, before taking over in March 2016.
