Mahogany Sessions have just shared a stunning new experience filmed with Bongeziwe Mabandla in an ice cave high in the Swiss Alps.
I have never been so cold in my life.– Bongeziwe Mabandla
In what Mahogany describes as “one of our most insane locations so far” Mabandla and the crew were flown in a mountain rescue helicopter to the cave. There, surrounded by ice, he performed a beautiful version of ‘noba bangathini’.
It was minus 15 degrees when the helicopter put us in the deep snow on the mountain and I had to perform super-fast as the weather was turning and the pilot was coming back to fetch us. But playing in that ice cave was an unforgettable experience and I think it added a really unique dimension to ‘noba bangathini’.
Mabandla’s Mahogany session was part of a series of live sessions that were filmed in stunning alpine landscapes during the Zermatt Unplugged festival in Switzerland in June. Mahogany is described as a leading online channel for live performances and music discovery.
