The Centre for Jazz and Popular Music will present the first “Twosday” gig for 2015 tomorrow (February 24) at 18h00, featuring EWOK (South Africa) and Charles Amblard (France).

Guitar and voice, poetry and music, Spoken Word Hip Hop with Ewok (SA) and Charles Amblard (France) is an opportunity to experience the essence of the Blues Rocking Hip Hop band Blue Gene  Charles Amblard returns to Durban this year to begin work on a new album with Ewok.

They have toured SA and France, travelling from Oppikoppi in 2012 to the prestigious Paris Jazz Festival in 2013, consolidating their live compositions into two E.P.'s and a full length album "These Meditations" which are available on ITunes.
