(Steve Newman)

In association with Concerts SA, the Steve Newman Trio is currently presenting a tribute to legendary band Tananas throughout South Africa.

In 1988, a trio of world-class musicians from South Africa and Mozambique came together through their improvisational and rhythmic sensibility, establishing themselves as one of the most original and compelling groups to have emerged from South Africa at the time.

The Steve Newman trio – Carlo Fabe (drums), Peter Ndlala (bass) and Steve Newman (guitars) will play a Tananas tribute covering Tananas’ material as well as new pieces. Fabe and Ndlala also perform with Errol Dyers quartet as well as other Cape luminaries. Newman, of the original Tananas, remains a prominent feature in the South African music scene.

Admission R120 pp includes a meal and early reservations are recommended on 031 459 0840.

The Tananas Tribute takes place in Durban on December 11 at 19h30 at The Headroom Studio, 21 Bridlington Road in Seaview.

The Tananas tour was made possible by Concerts SA Mobility fund
