On the weekend, Gugulethu and Langa residents were treated to international jazz with Nigerian trumpeter Joseph Kunnuji teaming up with marimba player Bongani Sotshononda and local musicians to do a gig at the Guga S’thebe Community Centre.
The event was organised by Jazz in the Native Jazz Yards, a group which frequently organises live performances for new and established artists, local and international, to play in various townships around Cape Town. The project aims to afford township residents “easy access to high quality live jazz music at a reasonable price”.
