“Music is endless!” This is the belief of Ayanda Zungu, a vibrant young lady otherwise known as AyaZungu. AyaZungu has been a recording artist since 2010 recording with her group called Rhythm and Flow and recently decided to brave the solo route. She has perfected one instrument that she has proved very capable of mastering - her voice.

Like most well-known artists, she was charmed by music at a tender age and recalls singing songs from musicals, such as Sarafina, as a toddler along with her sister. She also honed her singing skill at Church while singing in the youth Church Choirs.

The 28 year-old graphic design graduate and photographer says her sound has chosen her. She is still battling with nailing down a label for her sound. She attests that the sound slants more to Urban Soul. AyaZungu, however, believes that she has not even scratched the surface in her quest to unearth the vast talent and sound bestowed to her.

AyaZungu has shared the microphone with artists such as Uju, Zahara and Morafe. She has also graced the Ram Jam Stage @ the SABC and The YFM Live n ReYired stage to name a few.

“There’s always something else one can do. I know I have not even touched the tip of this iceberg. I look forward to the journey ahead that will include meeting and working with different artists,” says AyaZungu.

Like many of her peers, AyaZungu is a nonconformist. Her worldview is one that challenges the status quo and refuses to be boxed and confined.

“Can we make MUSIC? Can we experiment and experience sound and give what feels good as opposed to being boxed into one genre? Life should be about finding and maintaining inner freedom, that freedom is life!” muses AyaZungu.

Flowing from her musing, is the single ‘Freedom’ with which she wants to be introduced to the rest of the world. To AyaZungu, freedom is as simple as ‘dancing with the rain drops’. ‘Freedom’ has the potential to single her out as one of the latest music sensations South Africa and the world has brought to life.

The single which features Kevin Maduna was released on all the music purchasing sites online on the 14 September 2016.

Following the release of her the single, she has been doing promotional performances and radio interviews including YFM with DJ Sabby and Power FM with Paul Mnisi to name a few.
