Airing Out – Open Air in the Schlüter Courtyard Live Concerts, DJ Acts

As one of the few women in African hip hop, AWA Khiwe (African Women Arise) combines
traditional Ndebele culture with political issues such as
discrimination, violence against women, HIV and social inequality.

AWA Khiwe (African Women Arise) is the stage name of Rapper Awakhiwe Sibanda, who hails from Makoboka, Zimbabwe’s oldest township.

Her energetic stage shows are all about pride, solidarity, and empowerment, which she fires from the stage in highly danceable rhythms. Her stage name AWA is not only the abbreviation of her name, but also an acronym for “African Women Arise”, because she wants to be a voice for all women.
