XOLISA WINS (article first published : 2000-10-22)

Durban’s Xolisa Gqoli Dlamini has won the vocal category of the Old Mutual Jazz Encounters 2000, being the only KZN winner of this national talent search.

Since April, judges Sibongile Khumalo, Jack van Poll, Don Albert, Dizu Plaatjies and Sipho Gumede have sifted, listened and adjudicated the many entries before announcing the regional winners in the three categories: jazz, Afro jazz, and vocal. These regional winners then performed in a series of showcases, called Hot, Live & Otherwise before the national adjudications selected three national winners as well as the extra award winners.

The winners will receive their prizes and perform live alongside a star-studded line-up - including two of South Africa's brightest jazz stars, Jimmy Dludlu and Moses Taiwa Molelekwa - at the Old Mutual Jazz Encounters 2000 on November 10 at the Vodaworld in Gauteng.

Besides Xolisa Gqoli Dlamini, the other national winners are Johannesburg’s Highway Jam (jazz) and African Devoted Artists (Afro Jazz). All three will receive a prize of R10,000.

Tickets R50 for the Old Mutual Jazz Encounters 2000 Gala Event available at Computicket.
