Theresa Ng’ambi – “Mandu”

Theresa Ng’ambi is a talented Zambian folk singer. While her peers were playing hip-hop and nu-soul, Theresa Ng’ambi explored a more traditional Zambian sound.

Theresa is a storyteller and a poet. She draws on the traditional musical styles of her grandfather’s era and the thumb piano to make her childhood dream a reality. Her guitar supports the real instrument that is her melodic voice which transports and transfixes her audiences back to a time in Zambian history.

Theresa’s music is cross generational and has a broad appeal; she is a tourist attraction and the real “soul” of Zambian folk. Her album titled “Mandu” was released in 2016.  It aired across radio stations in both Livingstone and Zimbabwe. Theresa Ng`ambi won the Best Singer at the Zambia Women In Music Awards in 2018 and she’s been the Birdwatch of Zambia’s Bird Conservation Ambassador

Theresa Ng`ambi has been featured on TEDx talk and spoke on preservation through story telling and a song. She believes true art is truth within and originality. She has extended her love of art through story telling sessions with children, composing music in films.
