AFRO-JAZZ CONCERT (article first published : 2005-03-1)

Durban Black Drifters Entertainment, headed by Chris Ntuli and in association with uKhozi fm, Ilanga newspaper and J&B Whisky presents a varied programme of music at the BAT Centre on March 5.

The concert will be headlined by Durban-born superstar, Jabu Khanyile with Bayete. Audiences will also get to hear the roots sounds of Madala Kunene who provided the soundtrack for the Oscar-nominated Zulu language film Yesterday and the isicathamiya sounds of Durban Black Drifters.

There will also be a performance by Professor Cosbie Mbhele who will sing hits from her album, Lets Unite. There will be maskanda from uMshikashika Wenkunzi and the evening will be rounded off with a bit of mphephe from Eric "Coolfire" Hadebe.

Most of the artists have recently come back from overseas tours: Jabu Khanyile and his band Bayede have just returned from the US and China; Madala Kunene is back from Switzerland, and Durban Black Drifters toured Belgium and France last year and is now doing workshops in schools in KwaMashu, Inanda and Ntuzuma.

Tickets R50 and the doors will open at 19h00. Pre-event tickets are available at the BAT Centre reception on 031 332 0451 ask for Cebo.
