[Sithatha, noun, Sindebele, isiZulu, isiXhosa/sɪ ˈtɑ ˈtɑ/—a distant fire on a hill; a light shining in the darkness]


Sithatha is a new media house specialising in the finest books, music and film from southern Africa. Our emphasis is on quality rather than quantity. Unearthing new talent and new stories—and introducing them to the world—is our other priority. Africa is brim-full of the extraordinary, but so often it remains hidden. We want to play our part in changing that.

If you are an author, songwriter, musician or filmmaker with an original project you would like to share, please write to us—
