Ambasa Mandela

Bio

Singer, songwriter, and musician, Ambasa Mandela, popularly known as Mandela, is renown for his unique and powerful voice, the message in his music, and his high energy performances. Mandela uses his story-telling, lyrics and music to share real stories, activate thought-provoking conversations and build on inspiration.

His journey into music started off at an early age, where he was discovered and scouted at the age of 11. He claimed his space as an exceptional artist and artistic entrepreneur, using music as the language of his expression and a way out of the slums. Music took centre stage in Mandela’s life and with his newfound exposure, eventually chose to pursue a full-time career in music.

Mandela’s experiences and triumphs as a former member of a successful internationally recognised band called Sarabi, is unique one. As the dynamic and talented lead singer of Sarabi, Mandela’s musical ability saw Sarabi rise to become one of East Africa’s most popular live bands and had a successful tour where they delighted audiences in East Africa and in Europe.

From 2016, Ambasa Mandela began to pursue his solo career. He has since released his first singles in a six-track EP titled ‘Ona Sasa’ in October 2017. His music can be described as real African fusion, a blend of traditional East African rhythms alongside Benga, fused with Afro beat, and a dash of reggae. Mandela’s sounds and lyrics are not only magical and engaging but also emotional, addictive and truth hitting.
