Down memory lane with Mike Perry and Spencer Mbadu of Mankunku Ngozi fame and then swing up again with present day South African contemporary jazz giants trumpeter Feya Faku and bass player Herbie Tsoaeli.

Mike Perry (piano) and Spencer Mbadu (bass) will be joined by Richard Pickett on drums for the first part of what promises not to be a battle but a paring of South Africa jazz greats. Mike Perry was one of a handful of white jazz players who back in the day crossed the tracks to play jazz with their black counterparts in the townships…..of course he was following in the footsteps of Chris McGregor and others who went before them.

Herbie Tsoaeli and Feya Faku will render an extension of the Dumile Feni Sound Letters from Momo Gallery to Gugulethu KwaSec NY 138 No.52. On Friday 27 November Feya Faku and Herbie Tsoaeli at 7pm, entrance R60 and Sunday the 29 November at 2 pm where they will be joined by Mike Perry, Spencer Mbadu and Richard Pickett Trio. Entrance R100.
