In association with Concerts SA, saxophonist and penny whistle player Oscar Rachabane presents his national tour, where he will be joined by some friends, who happen at the same time to be great, accomplished musicians: guitarist Keenan Ahrends, and two German members of Seba Kaapstad – Sebastian Schuster on bass and Thomas Worle on drums.

Rachabane is a quirky hipster from Soweto of great distinction amongst his peers and fans alike. Part of a lineage of an illustrious family of reedmen, he has carved a niche himself as a no holds barred, soulful saxophonist. With an astounding jazz vocabulary and a mastery of South African mbaqanga, his is a sound deeply entrenched in the musical history of South Africa.

There will be two performances – December 2 and 3 at 23h00 at The Chairman, 146 Mahatma Gandhi Road in Durban. Tickets R150. More information on 078 387 1408 or email:
