The performance by the Acoustic Quartet at The Jazzy Rainbow tonight (March 2) is part of the Concerts SA Venue Circuit which aims to foster a love and support for live music in our communities, as well as anchor small and medium sized venues in urban and rural Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, and the Western Cape.

Acoustic Quartet will be playing their original compositions from the band’s repertoire, which stems from the contemporary and straight jazz genre. The project is aimed at bonding young up and coming musicians around the Durban and KwaZulu-Natal to perform their own repertoire. Acoustic Quartet feels that there is also a need to encourage and engage with their community and share their musical ideas in order to create something unique by blending the musicians’ backgrounds and influences in music and channelling that energy through compositions which push the boundaries for both musicians and audience.

“As the baton has been handed to us as the next generation of Durban musicians, it is important to maintain the legacy of previous generations who paved the way for us musicians” says band member Zolani Rafuza. The band comprises Dalisu Ndlazi on bass, Thabo Sikhakhane on trumpet, Vuyolwethu Mjindi on piano and Zolani Rafuza on drums.

The performance takes place tonight (March 2). Entrance 19h00. Tickets R50, including a free drink for students (T&C). The Jazzy Rainbow is at 93 Smiso Nkwanyana Road in Morningside in Durban.
