ANDILE MSELEKU & SIMAMELE (article first published : 2004-05-16)

Alliance Franšaise is to host a concert by Andile Mseleku & Simamele Concert on May 28 at 18h30. This Afro-Jazz group has been selected to represent the city of Durban for the Jazz Festival of Nantes (sister city of Durban).

Simamele comprises bright new talent from the Music Department of the Durban Institute of Technology. The band combines the individual talents of Ndu Makhathini on piano, Banda Banda on electric bass, Reggie Gcwensa on keyboards and Paki Peloeole on drums as well as accomplished young jazz singer Andile Mseleku, who is a member of the well-known musical Mseleku family. Her early exposure to the world of music as well as the experience she gained as a backing singer for her late sister, the popular Wendy Mseleku, makes Andile hot property on the local scene.

Focusing on an Afro dance-beat repertoire, this young group includes songs from such jazz luminaries as Sibingele Khumalo and Busi Mhlongo as well as South African jazz favourites like Judith Sephuma and Gloria Bosman.
