Multi-award-winning jazz musician Ndivhuho NL has just received a nomination for the Limpopo Music Awards 2021 (LIMA) for Best Jazz Song with his track Ndi Dzula Ndi Nae.
The song is from Ndivhuho NL’s latest album, Silent but Muted, and was released in February this year as a pre-release to the album. “The song is all about love and dedicated to all the lovers in the world,” he said. “It’s a very heart-warming song that is proving to be a hit and favourite in many corners of the country. I still receive many messages of praise from other African countries, and this really spurs me on to do more.”
The singer, composer and producer hopes to bring the award home soon. Ndivhuho NL holds an honours degree in music from the University of Venda and his name is already embedded in southern Africa’s music firmament.
Silent but Muted also comprises other hits such as Midzini Vhutshiloni, Silent but Muted, Vhubvoni Thohoyandou (ft Naledzani Netshirembe), Oh Yes Push Push, Mme Anga, and Iwe Mbava.
Ndivhuho NL expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the SAMRO Foundation for sponsoring the recording of his Silent but Muted project. “I extend my appreciation to everyone who participated in the making of the album, not forgetting the three musicians who put their skills into three of the semi-live songs: Dakalo Nemukula (bassist), Mutshidzi Luvhengo (pianist) and Phuluso Mbedzi (drummer).”
The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Ananias Begwa, and further given the final mastering touch by Richard Matoro.
