Phuphuma Love Minus, directed by Nhlanhla Mahlangu, is an extraordinary ensemble that specializes in Isicathamiya music. Rooted to the Zulu history, culture tradition and values, yet responding to the influences of modernity in a big city. Phuphuma Love Minus originates from the most rural South Africa, Kwa Ngabayela-Umsinga village in Kwazulu Natal.
