Thandi Ntuli was born on the 10th September 1987 in one of South Africa's largest townships, Soshanguve (Pretoria). She comes from a lineage of rich musical heritage, being the niece of guitarist, pianist and lead vocalist of 70's pop fusion band, Harari (The Beaters), Selby Ntuli.
At the tender age of 4, she started taking classical piano lessons under the tutelage of Ada Levkowitz. However, her keen interest for jazz was only kindled later in life, leading her to enrol and complete a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance at The University of Cape Town.
Her compositions draw from a wide array of influences, this she attributes to the collaborative culture of jazz that has seen her working closely with many artists, across genres. Some of her most notable collaborations include Thandiswa Mazwai, Neo Muyanga, Steve Dyer, QB Smith (UK/SA), Marcus Wyatt, The Brother Moves On, Sir LSG, Bheki Khoza, Siya Makuzeni and many more.
Since the release of her debut jazz album, "The Offering" which she released independently, Thandi is fast making an imprint in the local jazz scene with her unique voice. "The Offering" has received critical acclaim as well as numerous awards and recognition since its release in 2014, namely a MetroFM award nomination for "Best Urban Jazz" in 2015.
