Hailing from the streets of Gugulethu, Cape Town. South Africa’s Thando Skwatsha brings heart and soul to the performing arts.
A multitalented performer, Thando is known for combining his heartfelt, uplifting melodies and powerful vocals to weave a tapestry of contemporary African sounds that speaks for itself. His charismatic stage presence and extensive background as a lead choral singer have seen him grace stages around the world.
As a multilingual writer, Thando shares his stories poetically in his home language, isiXhosa as well as isiZulu and English.
He draws from his Xhosa heritage, family and life experience and crafts stories that leave listeners with hope, love and consolation in times of hardship and joy, perspective and peace in times of plenty.
His music is not his own, it is for all of us and it is his deep hope that it will accompany and ease us through the highs and lows that we may experience on our journey.
(From Thando, “Thank you”)
