The Centre for Jazz and Popular Music will present Heels Over Head on August 26 at 18h00 to close Women’s month shows.

Heels over Head is a Durban based band that started in 2008 by a group of ladies who are passionate about music. The bands current set-up includes talented female instrumentalist: Chillie Stent on guitar, Rebekah Doty (drums), Mandy Cobbing (keys), and well-loved vocalists Nomkhosi Mazibuko and Thulile Zama. They will be in the company of Lee Ngidi on bass, who has been playing with them for almost two years.

Renowned for their suave, sophisticated and sparkling stage presence, the band has found its groove and created a smooth, watertight brand of soul-kissed contemporary jazz that has become their signature sound.

Some of their achievements include winning of the Yamaha Young Talent Award in 2010 and being nominated for a South African Music Award for best contemporary album in 2011 for their debut album Could It Be which racked up popular and critical acclaim.  In November 2013 they have released an EP titled "Sondela".
