(Nomkhosi Mazibuko; Thulile Zama; Lindelwe Ngonelo and Rebekah Pillay)

The popular female jazz band Heels over Head will bring an extra special performance to the Bat Centre on May 1.

Heels over Head are the winners of the Yamaha Young Talent Award in 2010 and were nominated for a South African Music Award in 2011. The funky foursome released their debut album Could It Be at the end of 2010, which racked up popular and critical acclaim. Renowned for their suave, sophisticated and sparkling stage presence, the band has found its groove and created a smooth, watertight brand of slinky soul-kissed contemporary jazz.

Thulile Zama and Nomkhosi Mazibuko on vocals are joined by Lindelwe Ngonelo on keyboards and piano and Rebekah Pillay on drums to create the easy breezy jazz-pop that has become their signature sound. At the moment the band is working on their second album.

Heels over Head aims to build a platform and ask attention for females in music, they have a female manager (Marlyn Knol - iSupport Music Business) and for this performance vocalist/rapper Skye Wanda, guitarist Chillie Stent and also a second female pianist and drummer will be joining the band on stage.

The show takes place on May 1 (Workers Day) at Afroportico at Durban’s BAT Centre, starting at 14h00 and entrance is R50. More information on 031 711 1524 or email:
