African Music, Vocal and Solo Musician - Johannesburg
Gloria Bosman


Gloria Bosman, was born in Mofolo, but was raised in Pimville, Soweto. At no time did she consider that life would take her on a journey that would include stage and performing as a professional performer.

In much the same way as most of her American contemporaries, she began her career singing in a church Choir.

Over the past decade, Gloria Bosman has risen to become one of South Africa's most prominent and successful jazz vocalists, mastering a blend of Afropop, R&B, gospel and straightahead jazz. Added to that, she is a powerhouse of a singer: think Miriam Makeba with extra chutzpah.

This talented woman's career began in the church choir in much the same way as her American contemporaries.

With five albums to her credit under her belt, (and the “Sheer Sound” banner as a record company), as well as several collaborations, concert and guest feature appearances. Her latest offering, namely “Emzini”, has very recently been released to the market and is already receiving wide acclaim, airplay and feature across all media formats.

Gloria Bosman’s new album, entitled “Nature Dances” is a bold new step for this accomplished artist. She has in fact funded the recording herself and Sheer Sound licensed this beautiful album from Bosman Music.

Gloria also co-produced the album with Wessel van Rensburg, who was also her co-composer on many of the songs. The album consists of 7 original tracks and 3 cover songs. Gloria also wrote 3 of the original tracks herself (Play Me the Love Songs; Dance; Nature Dances).
