Every last Sunday of the month, Soweto Theatre brings you exciting and exclusive jazz sounds from the country’s top musicians to our stage.
This month (Sunday 28 June) Standard Bank`s young artist of the year for jazz winner, Nduduzo Makhathini and the extraordinary Thebe Lepere take their turn. Bra Thebe is an innovative experimenter and a master percussionist who has toured the world with renowned musicians, such as Louis Moholo and Loose Tubes to mention just a few.
The performance will be very special, where the old meets the new, the known meets the unknown.
Most of the concert will be mostly improvised, with a couple of themes from Makhathini’s bag, the idea is to tell the untold stories of Africa, its culture and its people through sound. “To do this we couldn’t pass the opportunity to invite these two musicians, Nduduzo Makhathini and Thebe Lepere to be on stage together,” said Khosi Hlatshwayo, community and audience development manager at Soweto Theatre.
“My family also has a gift of healing and music was the only way I could best express and celebrate these gifts,” says Nduduzo Makhathini, pianist, composer and producer.
