Singer (South Africa)
Her 2001 album Urban Zulu blended her unique, expressive style of singing with the groove- oriented maskanda style, taking this Zulu genre in a new direction by using non-traditional instruments, up-to-the-minute studio techniques and call-and- response chorus vocals to create a Zulu album of global relevance. Busi's reinterpretation of maskanda expresses the agony, the ecstasy, the pain and joy, the trials and ironies of life in a modern urban South Africa.
She achieved the feat of being the first female maskanda artist to be recorded. She was also initiated as a sangoma, which influenced her music. Busi made her big screen debut in "Long Street", having worked with Revel Fox previously when he made a documentary about her called "Voice of the Spirit" .
