UJ Weekend of Jazz
Curated with the young and young-at-heart in mind, the programme nods to the ‘nostalgia’ of the genre and area, while offering new ways to experience the magic of music. With the UJ Arts & Culture theme #FollowYourHeART at the core of the programme, the weekend’s line-up, curated by the Jozi Unsigned, is set to offer something for all UJ Arts & Culture audiences – UJ staff, students and alumni, and of course, the Joburg public.
“Jazz musicians and their audiences are feeling the decline of Joburg City’s iconic jazz circuit and it is imperative to create new spaces where artists can let their riffs run wild and audiences can revel in the sound. Once again we have aimed for an intergenerational approach to our programming in a way which suits both artists and audiences,” says the UJ Weekend of Jazz curator Christine Msibi from Jozi Unsigned.
Friday is fresh and fun with SAMA award winner Nomi Supasta opening the weekend with her bold style and stellar voice. From love to politics Nomisupasta brings it all into her music, delighting audiences with her outspoken, energetic sound
