To help emerging artists record their music without having to travel to major cities such as Durban and Johannesburg, Arts, Culture, Sports and Leisure MEC, Hlengiwe Mavimbela, launched a mobile recording studio at the Mbazwana Arts Center on Sunday.
“We understand how deeply artists have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, and this studio is part of the effort to revive the entertainment industry,” Mavimbela said.
She explained that the mobile studio will visit all 11 districts of KwaZulu-Natal to identify talent and provide marketing opportunities for emerging artists.
Afro House music artist Sphamandla Mafuleka from Mbazwana was delighted to finally have the opportunity to record his music in a professional studio.
âOur facility at uMkhanyakude cannot produce broadcast quality music, so we appreciate this opportunity from the Ministry of Arts and Culture.
âWe’ve been waiting to release our song since the start of the year and maybe now our dreams can finally come true,â Mafuleka said.
Gospel artist Mzomuhle Mdletshe also praised the initiative.
âI was thrilled to see my music recorded by professionals who know what they are doing and use cutting edge technology. “
