We Got the Jazz - Shabaka and The Ancestors

Friday Jan 25 21:00       7 Reserve St, Braamfontein
The Artivist’s eye-catching event space the Untitled Basement opens up for the We Got the Jazz evenings, a series of monthly jazz performances that see some of the hottest acts in the local contemporary jazz scene performing in one of Braamfontein's coolest underground events venues.

Kicking off 2019, Afrobeat-jazz collective Shabaka and The Ancestors returns to the We Got Jazz stage. Helmed by Mercury Prize nominated British-Barbadian saxophonist and clarinettist Shabaka Hutchings, Shabaka and The Ancestors is a distinctly afro-futurist band made up of some of the hottest jazz luminaries on Joburg's contemporary jazz scene. “The grand scheme of this sound is to present the musical language that I normally associate with my UK bands in the context of South African musicians and musical sensibilities” explains band leader Shabaka.
