Rising Artist: Tuelo & Her Cousins
What happens when you mix South African flavor with, dare we say, Uptown Funk? The end result is Tuelo and Her Cousins. The band, featuring South African singer Tuelo Minah and some of the most badass musicians New York City has to offer deliver a blend of of soul, funk, jazz, and traditional African sounds that can only be born in a place as diverse and as booming as The Big Apple. While Tuelo often sings in English, she manages to break out in her native Setswana, one of the many languages to come from The Rainbow Nation of South Africa.
