Jozia is a consummate musical chameleon with an adventurous spirit and a distinctive artistic vision. She loves to experiment with styles, sounds and words, blending genres like acoustic folk, soul, pop and indie rock. And yet her output is so distinctly her own; perhaps it‘s her emotive and multifaceted vocals or the courage of her unconventional songwriting.
Spiced up with wordplays, poetic ambiguity and a subtle humour, she explores the big themes in life that really matter: Love and loss, mariages and cows, otherness and alienation, puberty and identity, marihuana and democracy, and, of course, the unsolved mistery of mother-daughter relationships. Even if we don‘t understand the words – Jozia sings in Sepedi, Zulu, Xhsosa, Xevenda and English - the pure intensity and emotionality of her songs unfold a magic that we cannot escape.
