KORA/SAMA Award Winning South African Musical Icon

SUTHUKAZI AROSI

When I am asked what the best album that I have recorded is, my response is All I've Ever Done And Will Ever Do. My latest work, NAKED, is an album that addresses the importance of being part of this planet earth as we are all nature, as we are all one. As I look at life and all that is dished out to us, I believe that we all have choices as how to overcome whatever that is in front of us. As human beings we need to be grateful of the life we were given and feel blessed to be part of creation by loving one another and to see things spiritually. This is the naked truth...

NAKED

We people are naked from the inside as the outward manifestations of this world have brainwashed us into an existence that does not value life, the truth. As human beings we need to be grateful of the life given and blessed to be part of this planet by loving one another and to see things spiritually. This is the naked truth. This is what "Naked" is about. This is what Suthukazi Arosi is all about.
