The Centre for Jazz and Popular Music will present Njinji street on October 5, 2022, at 18h00.

This concept is led by a young pianist, Samkelo Njinji who will be taking audiences on a journey that he conceptualizes as Njinji street. 

Njinji street is the lane of healing and love, where medication is released in melody format to revive one’s inner man. 

On this night expect a performance of Njinji's compositions which are a look into his soul, thoughts and imaginations. You will get a sense of his struggles and how music has become his daily dose of hope.

Njinji will be joined by Blessings Twala on bass and Snethemba ‘Snare’ Cele on vocals, Sbu Zondi on drums, Thabo Sikhakhane on trumpet and Senzo Ngcobo on trombone. This is a journey you definitely want to embark on!

Tickets R100 (R70 pensioners and R40 students). Booking is essential and needs to be done by 15h00 on October 05, 2022. Email to book.

Njinji street takes place on October 5 at 18h00 (doors open 17h30) at the UKZN, Centre for Jazz and Popular Music, University of KwaZulu-Natal, Howard College Campus, Dennis Shepstone Building, level 2
