Nkulukeo (Freedom)

Nkulukeo (Freedom)‘ from Umlilo (OneBeat 2018) is a workshop project designed to bring together queer musicians in modern-day Southern Africa to collaborate on songs about upliftment, healing, and freedom. The songs created during the workshop were showcased in a special 1 hour Pride Edition of the Chakra Huns Podcast on Other Radio.


Intergalactic shape-shifting kwaai diva Umlilo is a genre and gender bending multi-disciplinary artist. The queer performer and music producer’s signature sound, dubbed ‘future kwaai’, explores and pushes the boundaries of electronic kwaito, alt-pop music in contemporary South Africa and has been a regular fixture in the international music community.
