ARTIST OF THE WEEK: Pilani Bubu is still jazzy and soulful


Pilani Bubu the self-proclaimed ‘jazzy folk soul’ artist best exemplifies the complementing of organic music and authentic style.
Her music is novel and has evolved into a unique fusion of genres jazz, blues, folk and funk – old souled but yet still so catchy.

She has recently released another classic jam titled ‘Sweet Love’ which is a preview of her upcoming fourth studio album.

Sweet Love, is a song about the yearning and the manifestation of love. Which is quite a relevant start to her forthcoming album Warrior Of Light, which talks to the evolution of her journey in finding herself and her creative self-stemming from her previous heartbreak album: Journey Of A Heart.

Sweet Love follows Pilani Bubu’s previous single titled Miss Understood, produced by RJ Benjamin, which was playlisted on 25 radio stations across South Africa.

Pilani Bubu wrote the song while camping out in the Pyrenees in the South of France, as part of a collaboration project – Nothing Concrete, Humanitarian. On a glorious summer day, Miss Bubu felt heartbroken no more, ready to love and ready for more.
