Ethekwini Jazz Jam

A first for Durban! Wrap up your Durban July Handicap weekend, with some glorious mellow Sunday jazz-fusion at the one-day eThekwini Jazz Jam event to be held at the MSC Nelson Mandela Durban Cruise Terminal on Sunday 7 July.

A full and varied programme of eclectic music is on the cards. Among the incredible acts signed up to perform are Durban?s own soul and blues guitarist, Bafo? Dr Madala Kunene whose distinctive African folk singing style has earned his place as one of Durban?s foremost cultural icons. He has been suffering critical health issues in recent times, and we are delighted that he is recovered and is eager to perform again for us.eThekwini Jazz Jammay well be his first major performance post-surgery.

We are delighted to welcome R&B and Afro-soul singer Zonke Dikana who has long been one of the country?s most accomplished songwriters. She has carved out a distinctive position in the musical landscape. She?s one of the country?s biggest stars and unlike almost every other female singer on the SA music scene currently, Zonke not onlyhas a fan base of thousands, and releases multi-platinum albums, she also writes and produces her own material.She has written and co-written hits for dance artist Winnie Khumalo, kwaito rapper Thebe, late R&B star TK and also worked with legends like Bongo Maffin and Oskido.

Personifying contemporary jazz-fusion is actor, singer, dancer, songwriter Tubatsi Mpho Moloi, who is influenced by the sounds of blues, jazz, rock and African folk music. His music asks the audience to be open- minded and exploratory as he brings a collaboration of sound and genre in creating an authentic fusion folk sound. His newest work is inspired by a range of diverse artists, such as Guy Buttery, Philip Tabane, Bob Dylan andZim Ngqawana.Tubatsi?s early musical influence came from his childhood home in Soweto, Johannesburg. He is currently the lead vocalist for Urban Vilage, an experimental band from Soweto, contributing flute, guitar and mbira to the stage.

Performing a vibrant blend of Isicathamiya, Afro Jazz and Maskandi,Mnqobi Yazo?s brand is proudly African, with his music deeply rooted in traditional Zulu music with a modern twist. His unique vocal tone has made a favourite feature for the country?s leading musicians such as the legendary Shwi Nomtekhala, Big Zulu, Nathi and others. He is also a gifted composer, writer and producer; he acts; is a voice-over artist and has experience on stage and in film. For someone who is barely 30, he boasts an impressive and extensive CV!
