The Suncoast Sunday Jazz Session for August 31 takes place from 14h30 to 17h30.

The developmental band is Bantuís Cleft. Mozambican guitarist Milton Chissano who is presently studying at UKZN is a composer and interpreter of traditional music. He is joined by fellow countryman Ildo Nandja, a bass player whose interest lies in collaborative jazz and cultural fusions. They are joined by talented saxophonist Leon Sharnick and drummer Paki Peleloele for this Bantuís Cleft project which concentrates on original compositions in various styles including Afro-Jazz, Afro-Latino and Tropical Jazz.

The main band will be the Natalie Rungan Quintet. Award-winning jazz singer and composer Natalie Rungan takes the stage at Suncoast along with some of Durbanís finest musicians. Known for her range and versatility, Natalie Rungan is joined by Burton Naidoo on electric piano, Leski Alfred on bass, Dane Francis on lead guitar and Bruce Baker on drums. Together they explore jazz standards and contemporary classics as well as airing samples from Natalieís recently released debut album.
