In 2020, Selma Uamusse released her second album under her own name, "Liwoningo" produced by Guilherme Kastrup. This is a record that emphasizes the immaterial African heritage of Mozambique, an Africanness that continues to inspire lyrics and melodies, but that is mixed throughout this world, in themes and arrangements, some closer to the folklore tradition, others that wander between electronic, rock, afro-beat and experimental, always keeping as a common place the power of rhythm, language or African sounds, opening space for other influences, from Portuguese and Brazilian music.

"Liwoningo" features the Brazilian band Bixiga 70, the Mozambican artists Chenny Wa Gune, Milton Guli and Lenna Bahule and the Korista Mbye Ebrima from Gambia. Selma Uamusse began to unveil a little of what was to become "Liwoningo" with the singles "No Guns" and "Hoyo Hoyo". Selma Uamusse's powerful vocal instrument and performance genius led her to shine in many different musical genres, from projects such as WrayGunn, Cacique'97, Gospel Collective or Rodrigo Leão, and her versatility is also recognised in theatre, cinema and visual arts.
