Heritage Jazz weekend

Heritage Jazz weekend

The Jazz in the Native Yards will present the Heritage Jazz Weekend with Chilean jazz guitarist Tito al Uribe and Afro-folk singer Msaki from September 23 to 24 at Kwa Sec, Ny 138 no. 52 Gugulethu from 3pm.

On Sunday, September 23, Uribe will perform with young local jazz musicians Tefo Mahola (drums) and Steve de Sousa (bass). After pioneering Latin rock and later jazz in Belgium, Uribe moved from his native Chile to settle in Rwanda in 2015, where he has been interacting with many Rwandan musicians.

A multi-style solo guitarist, arranger and composer of 40 years, Uribe is excited to be coming down to Cape Town to work with young musicians.

Msaki will be back by popular demand on Monday, September 24, with a local band. She says she is excited to be back in Gugulethu after performing to full capacity audience in April.

“I love the Jazz in the Native Yards space at Kwa Sec. It gives you a sense of going back home and what a better time to do it than on Heritage day,” says Msaki.
