April is international Jazz Appreciation Month and we have put together the ultimate local music line-up of female artists that will blow your mind!
Queen of Afro-Jazz, Judith Sephuma, along with local songstresses Nokukhanya Dlamini and Buhlebendalo Mda, and comedian Q Dube will take to the stage on 12 April; coinciding with international Walk on your Wild Side Day, which is about calling out your inner champion and the part of you that sees the world in a way that no one else can.
Internationally renowned, award-winning artist, Judith Sephuma, will headline the evening with singles from her multiple platinum selling albums that led to sold out shows in Europe, the USA and the UK.
Joining Sephuma is vocalist, Nokukhanya Dlamini, with her Jazz, Afro-Jazz, traditional music and Soul sounds. Formerly the lead singer of Gospel group, Joyous Celebration, Dlamini released her debut album, Uyinkosi Yami, in 2001.
Opening the evening is Buhlebendalo Mda, co-founder of acapella band The Soil, whose dreams of releasing a solo album are finally a reality. Describing her music as soulful and “Jazzy fizzle”, a mixture of genres that that match her every mood, she is set to release her debut album in August this year.
Comedian and resident MC Hector Motivator, along with stand-up comedian, radio personality, TV presenter and actor Q Dube, will provide side-splitting entertainment throughout the evening.
Tickets are R450 per person or R4 500 for a table of 10; including a three-course buffet and table wine.
