“This is what really makes real jazz musicians: people coming out with their own voice.” Roscoe Mitchell



Guy Buttery with Kanada Narahari on the sitar, this Sunday at the Olympia

With a meeting of two very distinct creative minds united by their mutual curiosity in each other’s diverse musical worlds, Guy Buttery and Kanada Narahari bring India even closer to its well established home in South Africa. In production for over 6 months, the fusing of music from both of these rich and varied musical backgrounds is rooted in Guy and Kanada’s progressive exploration of these worlds, bridging the gap, as well as re-imagining the realms existing between Africa and India. These two virtuosi’s will be bringing this collaboration to Cape Town for the first time with concerts in the city centre as well in the outlying regions and on the Peninsula.

Here’s an interesting story sent to us by Gwen Ansell,

Sharks love jazz but are stumped by classical, say scientists and not it’s got nothing to do with the natal rugby team, click and read.




SAMA nominated Jazz Collective, The Tune Recreation Committee’s

(TRC) international debut is in the form of a tour entitled The Future Is Now. This multi-faceted presentation in Swaziland, Mozambique and South Africa will focus on collaboration and musical exchange with other artists. In each territory the TRC will present works in various forms and guises with local musicians and artists accompanied by exhibitions and performances at every stop of the way.

The Future Is Now Tour also presents an amazing opportunity for the TRC to perform for a new ever-growing audience demographic in the SADC region. By bringing the best of what the TRC has to offer, The Tour is a springboard towards building and strengthening intercultural dialogue in the region.

The Album:

The SAMA nominated album Voices Of Our Vision, by the ensemble was the only independent South African album to be ranked as one of top releases of 2017by The New York Times: “…this alliance of young South African musicians delves into the country’s syncretic cultural heritage — then ventures beyond. You hear Balkan folk, American funk, West African high life, and South African free jazz. Most of all, you hear five bristling improvisers dancing together, modelling a kind of thoughtful communion”.

“The T.R.C. (its name is a sidelong reference to the post-apartheid Truth and Reconciliation Commission) avoids the most common pitfalls in South African jazz: It’s not beholden to sunny Cape Town traditionalism, and it doesn’t emulate any specific form of American jazz.” New York Times

The TRC features Clement Benny on drums, Nicholas Williams on bass, Reza Khota on guitar, Mandla Mlangeni on trumpet. The unit has performed to rousing applause at the 18th annual Cape Town International Jazz Festival. The group takes original tunes and reinvents nods from their influences to embracing vibrant underground music scene of drum and bass to Balkanology. Fusing imported sounds and exporting to their own flavour, either going into a Ghoema -tinged feel or just improvising around the melody. TRC founder, Mandla Mlangeni describes the sound as “the playground for the interrogation, assimilation and extended extemporization from the canon of South African jazz heritage

The Tour

Tune Recreation Committee’s The Future Is Now accompanied by workshops is a dissemination of a dialogue that is severely underrepresented in the musical landscape and the broader context of Southern Africa. Specifically relating to several African music art forms within the realm of jazz and indigenous music, which share common traits in all regions.

The focus of the endeavour is one that aims to build a documented heritage resource that challenges notions of colonial bias and seeks to expand a narrative of musicians, composers and artists through their own perspectives.

“Ours is an attempt to create a sustainable platform and network for composers and musicians in a pairing of creative partnerships and collaborations with artists residing within the SADC region”, says Mandla Mlangeni.

TRC’s The Future Is Now : SADC Tour is supported by Concerts SA and the ANT Funding Grant from Pro Helvetia Johannesburg financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
