Nomashenge is a Ladysmith born and Durban bred poet-vocalist, and chemist. She began her poetry journey in 2005 as a writer and 2007 as a performer. Having shared her work across the country including the Arts Alive, Essence, and Open Book International Festivals, Nomashenge believes poetry to be an Alchemy that continually transforms the world. Her work focuses on themes of self exploration, blackness and femininity. Nomashenge’s blend of music and poetry brings forth a hybrid of performance-poetry that speaks to the heart of the zeitgeist.
