Joe Nina is set to be back on the Durban stages with two live performances at the Jazzy Rainbow on July 13 and 14, 2018. Nina, whose latest album Time II Time saw him back on the stage at the SAMA24 award ceremony, bringing the crowd to their feet, has had a brilliant 28 years musical career, with 27 albums to date.

He has produced and written songs for excellent musicians such as Stompie Mavi, Ringo Mandlingozi and the African Jazz Pioneers, working alongside Victor Ntoni, Ray Phiri, Sbongile Khumalo, Tsepo Tshola, Patricia Majalisa, Sharon D and countless other talented artistes.

These performances by Joe Nina at The Jazzy Rainbow are 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.

Concerts SA is a joint South African/Norwegian live music development project housed within the SAMRO Foundation. Concerts SA receives financial, administrative and technical support from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, SAMRO, the SAMRO Foundation and Concerts Norway. Working with musicians, promoters, venue owners and audiences, and providing support to the sector through research and skills development for music professionals, the project aims to build a vibrant and viable live music circuit in southern Africa. It also aims to develop an interest in and appreciation of live music by showcasing music performances and conducting workshops at schools. Follow @ConcertsSA on Twitter at or like on Facebook at
