Buhlebendalo: Visionary Women

As a storyteller and a founding member of the acclaimed kasi soul group The Soil, singer-songwriter Buhlebendalo finds inspiration in women wherever she goes. “Every woman has a story to tell,” she tells Apple Music. “An ordinary street vendor inspires me. A CEO of a Black-female-owned business inspires me. My manager's work ethic continues to inspire me. How my own mother continues to raise our children inspires me. We are wells of wisdom.” For her Visionary Women playlist, she’s curated tracks from Unathi Nkayi, Sade, Jill Scott, Nonku Phiri, Oumou Sangaré, and more. “Being a visionary woman to me means showing up for oneself,” she explains. “It means being able to speak your truth and not forgetting to show up for others. These past two years have taught us the spirit of community in the spaces we hold; it’s therefore important to remember that we really do need each other.”
