The Jill Scott Project

The Toff in Town

“Soulful tones, flawless delivery” - Herald Sun

Born in Zimbabwe, Melbourne-based singer-songwriter, Thando, has been charming audiences around Australia with her electric stage presence and powerhouse vocals.

She is a commanding performer with a natural ability to tell a story and take her audience on a journey of reflection. The songstress grew up feasting on the musical offerings of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, QUEEN and TLC. Along the way she found Jill Scott, and crafted her genre-bending sound with an electric live set.

Thando brings a special show to MIJF paying tribute to living legend Jill Scott whose lyrical honesty, vivid imagery and raw emotion is a perfect match for Thando’s vocal style and musical storytelling.

Accompanied by Cristian Barbieri (The CB3), Nat Bartsch, Belle Bangard, Caleb Shand and Anthony Murray, Thando will add her magic to an array of songs from Scott’s career.
