YOUR BEAUTY and splendor have everyone talking; I compose songs on YOUR wonders. Psalm 145:5 9 (Msg)


Islimela – 

Islimela is the fine arts division of 1 Old Note. We dance, we sing; we put together words and melody, translated in our bodies and lived out in our lives as an offering unto the Most High God – the LORD.


Worship – 

We offer sacrifices of praise and worship to God through the talents and giftings that He has given to us. 



God is God who hates robbery and oppression. We are His anointed hands and feet to bring awareness and freedom

The Socks on my Chest

art and word piece by Lithakazi Mkombe


Nurture, love, growth and the cycles of a woman’s body. To paraphrase Beth Moore: “Mary must have taken every piece of her puzzle; the good, the ugly, the fear and the mystery as she made sense of the picture of bringing our Messiah to the world. ” A beautiful illustration of how in life we are faced with all sorts of situations but through that blood and mess our promises are birthed. 

I remembered sagging boobs – the socks on the chest and metaphorically wrote a piece about how boobs sag because they fed the future. Scarred and bound up, but very proud of every battle conquered that adds a beautiful piece to a life story and of generations to come.
