The Australian music scene is no stranger to Thando. The widely loved Zimbabwean-born ‘First Lady of Soul and R&B’ has commanded massive crowds at festivals such as Bluesfest, WOMAdelaide, Groovin The Moo, BigSound, Jungle Love and Woodford Folk Festival. Her sold out shows at Chapel Off Chapel have stunned audiences to a point of standing ovation; rave reviews following in their wake. Every performance is a statement – a triumph of powerful lyricism, rich-ranged vocals and smooth backing instrumentation – turning onward the wheel of live music, show by show.
Following her critically acclaimed performances on The Voice Australia in 2022, the wheel is about to turn again. Her journey begins a new chapter of immersive song writing and emotive performances and a powerhouse vocal.
With a statement as bold as her stage presence, The Reintroduction Tour will invite new audiences into Thando’s genre transcendent world of music, and is sure to delight audiences from all walks of life.

“Sikwila is not just a prodigy of the jazz and soul styles, she is the embodiment of the genres' most prolific spirits” - Joe Dolan, The Music
