Titi is a young woman that hails from Gugulethu, a black African township in the suburbs of Cape Town, South Africa. Raised by a mother who was an actor, and a father who was a singer, Titi began singing at a very early age. Since then, she has enjoyed a successful career both as a solo musician, and as a member of various bands. She is since 2009 a member of the Playing For Change Band. Her music is a mix of Soul and Pop fused with African influences, and she is excited to add her unique and powerful voice to the Playing For Change Movement.
How we met:
We first met this lovely young woman in Guguletu, South Africa, at a concert held to celebrate the opening of the Playing For Change Foundation’s Ntonga Music School in the Spring of 2009. She joined Mermans Kenkosenki, Jason Tamba, members of band Tyhundza, as well as students of the Ntonga Music school, to put on a powerful performance. As soon as we heard Titi’s voice, it was love at first sight– or, in this case, love at first sound.
