(McCoy Mrubata & Mark Hauser)

The Rainbow, iSupport Music Business, Centre for Jazz and Popular Music and Concerts SA proudly present a tour of the Mrubata/Hauser Project in KZN.

This collaboration came to life through a friendship which began in Switzerland when McCoy Mrubata and Mark Hauser were introduced by their mutual friend Mark Roth. The two saxophone players hit it off immediately and over the years embarked on a project which looked at ways to exchange the music of the two continents - Africa and Europe.

This concert is jammed with heavy hitters and their band features the cream of the crop of South African musicians: Paul Hanmer on keys, Thembinkosi Mavinbela on bass guitar and Bernice Boikanyo on drums, will be backing Mrubata on tenor saxophone and flute and Hauser on alto- and soprano saxophone.
