Zoe Modiga was born Palesa Nomthandazo Phumelele Modiga in Overport, Durban and raised in Pietermaritzburg. Her love for music at a very young age encouraged her to attend the National School of the Arts in Braamfontein, Johannesburg where she studied classical piano, clarinet and vocals. Her time at the school provided an excellent platform to pursue music as a passion and career in her later years. She studied jazz vocals at the South African College of Music, UCT.
Over the past few years, with some experience behind her, this singer- songwriter’s talent has opened a number of doors in the music industry. Zoe has been fortunate enough to be part of celebrated festivals such as the Aardklop Festival, Artscape Youth Jazz Festival, UCT Jazz Festival, Joy of Jazz, Fete De La Musique, Hugh Masekela Heritage Festival, Fete De La Musique, Oppikoppi, Rocking the Daisies, Redbull Music Festival, Bushfire and The Cape Town International Jazz Festival and the winner of the Jazz Category of the SAMRO Overseas Scholarship Competition 2015. On these respected platforms, she has had the privilege of sharing stages with the likes of Lira, Tshepo Tshola, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Louis Maholo, Gloria Bosman, Matthew Gold, The Kiffness, Breakfast Included, the Frank Paco Art Ensemble, Mark Fransman, Bombshelter Beast, Amandla Freedom Ensemble and so forth.
Despite sharing the stage with a number of performers, Zoe’s pursuit for her own identity became a strong force in these collaborations. She aspires to pursue a multifaceted career where her singing, songwriting and performing is challenged, revered, inspired and influential.
She will be gracing the Eyethu Lifestyle Centre stage and inviting music lovers to join her as she says #YellowSoweto in style.
