The well-known and popular all-female jazz/pop band Heels Over Head will give a performance at the Luthuli Museum on April 17. During the day they will facilitate a schools programme for young learners and in the evening the museum opens its doors to anyone from the community who would like to watch these ladies in action.

The love of jazz music united these girls together towards the end of 2008 to form this unique musical force. Since then they are always occupied with composing, rehearsing and recording new music while giving many performances around KwaZulu-Natal and the country.

Their music is referred to as smooth jazz or easy-breezy pop jazz, they developed a notable and clever signature sound that consists of current African-influenced music and uniquely re-arranged standards. The band is known for making the audience get on their feet and dance to their rhythmic bass lines and their cheerful melodies.

With their sparkling stage presence, the ladies always look classy and stylish and you cannot miss the charm and charisma of their lead vocalists, Thulile Zama and Nomkhosi Mazibuko. They are joined by skilled drummer Rebekah Doty and accomplished pianist Mandy Cobbing. Last but not least, smoking hot guitarist Chillie Wardell-Stent joins the band and the flaming fusion of musicians is complete.

Heels over Head performs on April 17at 18h00 at The Luthuli Museum, 3233 Nokukhanya Luthuli Street in Groutville. Entrance fee R20.

This performance is supported by Concerts SA and produced by iSupport Music Business and Luthuli Museum.
