JIKA (article first published : 2005-07-9)

It has been a year since the contemporary music world lost one of Durban's greatest musicians, bassist Sipho Gumede.

“To remember someone who remains so close to the Rainbow regulars, we are presenting a tribute concert featuring the group, Jika,” says Neil Comfort, co-owner of the Rainbow Restaurant & Jazz Club.

“Jika is a six piece line-up moulded on the dynamics of the Sipho Gumede Band, under the leadership of bassist Bongani Nkwanyana who for so long played second bass in Gumede's group,” explains Neil. “Also in the group and previously with Gumede is pianist and keyboardist Nelson Gumede. The balance of the line-up features Mdu Mahlobo on guitar, Zu Khuzwayo on alto saxophone, Thabiso Mnanyana on drums and Siphiwe Cebekhulu on keyboards.”

The concert will take place on July 31. The doors open at 12h00 with the first set at 13h00. Entrance R40 (R30 Rainbow Jazz Club members).

More information on 031 702 9161 or 083 463 8044. The Rainbow Restaurant & Jazz Club is situated at 23 Stanfield Lane, Pinetown.
