Join the UKZN School of Arts-Music’s lunch hour concert today (Monday, August 19) when the programme features David Jenkins, fondly known as uQadasi by his friends and fans alike. Jenkins recently wowed the audience at a recent “Twosday” event, which is another initiative of the School of Arts-Music, in trying to keep music culture alive and growing.

The son of the late well-known KZN journalist Chris Jenkins, David is an accomplished Maskandi musician who developed a deep passion for Zulu culture and music at a young age. Based in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, Jenkins and the Qadasi band are on a quest to bring back traditional Zulu Maskandi music while including a fusion of traditional and more contemporary styles.

The concert takes place at today at 12h15 in Howard College Theatre and entrance is free. For more information contact Lu Dlamini on 031 260 3353 or 083 716 6990 or e-mail:
