UJ Weekend of Jazz : Gabi Motuba & Nduduzo Makhatini

University of Johannesburg Arts Centre
Sat 24 August
Starts at 18:30
R50 - R120
Curated with the young and young-at-heart in mind, the programme nods to the ‘nostalgia’ of the genre and area, while offering new ways to experience the magic of music.

With the UJ Arts & Culture theme #FollowYourHeART at the core of the programme, the weekend’s line-up, curated by the Jozi Unsigned, is set to offer something for all UJ Arts & Culture audiences – UJ staff, students and alumni, and of course, the Joburg public.

Avid jazz lovers will find Saturday a treat with pianist, and composer Nduduzo Makhathini headlining the evening.

A shining light in the industry Makhathini’s “bright lyrism and compositional clarity” defy expectation and leave audiences wanting more. And label-defying artist, Gabi Motuba, will deepen the experience with her rich vocals and inspired compositions.

This year’s programme has been bolstered by the inaugural Rhythm of the Bands competition; a student music competition open to UJ bands wanting to showcase their musical talents at the UJ Weekend of Jazz. The winning band gets to be the opening act for Gabi Motuba and Nduduzo Makhathini on Saturday 24 August.

Saturday, 24 August 2019

Venue: University of Johannesurg Arts and Culture, Cnr Kingsway and University Rd, Auckland Park.
