"Le Mpendulo unleashes solo career"

Tshwane born singer and guitarist, Lebohang Mpendulo Mahlangu, is at what looks like the beginning of the fruitful phase of her solo career.

She found her voice and path in music as part of a band called ROOTS.

And although the group disbanded due to other commitments, she kept her focus and picked herself up and kept the music playing until something started giving.

She goes by the name Le Mpendulo and it looks like people are beginning to listen and a fan base is brewing.

She is yet to record an album but is performing around the country introducing the masses to her work. - SABC News


Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Lebogang Mahlangu,  Stage  name Le  Mpendulo  as  known to  my fans  and colleagues  in the  music  arena.  I  was  born and raised  in  Tshwane (Mamelodi).  While attending,  prior  to completing my  metric  at  Phateng Secondary  School,  I  started  to  realize  my  talent  and the  inevitable calling  in music.

An acoustic  guitar  was  donated to me  by  a family  member  who  cultivated  a lot of  creativity  in me.  I  composed  and registered my  music  with SAMRO  for  the first time.I  then found  a  band  later  known as  RROOTS,  consisting  of  myself and five other  members.  We  performed in  and outside  Mamelodi  and built  a name for  ourselves.  Unfortunately  due to  career  commitments,  my  fellow members  left  to pursue their  dreams  in different  universities. Finding that  I was  left  alone,  I  continued  to compose and  perform  solo,  of  cause  with  their blessing at hand.

As  our  global  icon Nelson Mandela stated (education  is  a tool  one can use to change the world),  I  registered  with  Tshwane University  of  Technology  to pursue my  other  passion,  Graphic  Design.  I  am  proud to say  that  I  have completed  my  final  year  despite  the  ever  busy  schedule between writing music,  improving my  guitar  skills,  performing,  and tertiary  work  and  of  cause home chores N.B Hard work and determination Moves Mountains.

Continuing playing my  music  as  a  soloist  in  the township,  I  received  and was honoured to perform  at: 
•  Afro Marimba Jazz  Festival  hosted  in Norway. •  Motsepe Foundation Concert  at  Moretela Resort,  Mamelodi. •  Grahamstown National  Arts  Festival. •  Artists  in  Motion  Concert,  State  Theatre. •  Musical  mentor  at  the City  of  Tshwane HIV/AIDS  awareness  camp. •  Obtained a gold certificate at  UNISA  Music  Competition,  under  the advanced instrumental  category. •  Perform live with Paul  Mnisi  @  Power  Fm •  1st  Ave  Block  Party  unplugged  session with  Glen  Lewis  and  Melanie Bala.   • Winner on SA Indies Music Week 2015.

OBJECTIVES •  My aim is  to influence young  lives  positively  through my  music. •  To  cultivate  and plant  life,  love and  urban African culture  in respect  of good morals  and values. •  To eliminate  ill  social  norms  and superstitions  to the  South African youth through my  art. •  My goal  is  to  establish  a  brand that  will  not  only  change  lives  positively, but  also  help  young  aspiring  artists  to realize and  pursue  a career  in art.
