A singer, songwriter and performer with a distinctive and enticing voice, captivating stage presence, versatility, originality, a rich textured range – an ability to flow effortlessly across genres – fusing jazz, Afro Soul, R&B and Reggae. Roserro is set to lure audiences into her kaleidoscopic and multi-rhythmic world and stamp a bold mark on the South African music scene.
As one of a select clique of female composers – entertainment with social consciousness is a hallmark of her work. Her first EP features the lilting Vuka – a single celebrating the awakening to possibilities that South Africa has in store, while her offerings “I believe” and the reggae inspired “Kasi-2-Kasi” are melodic testament to her personal sense of activism, her dedication to community engagement and broader visions for African unity through music.
Born Noluthando Dlamini in the small town of Peddie in the Eastern Cape, Roserro grew up singing in church where her father was a priest and her mother, a nurse by profession, was a noted soprano. At home, her musical ear was infused with the towering sounds of legends Caiphas and Letta, Stompie Mavi and Miriam Makeba, while the audacity of 80s sensations Brenda Fassie, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, and Mercy Phakela fueled her passion. Starting out her career in the financial services sector, Roserro embraced her true calling after being enthusiastically received as she performed at a memorial service of famed bassist and composer Victor Ntoni in 2013.| | | Next → | Single Page« Back to Glossary Index
