Linda Sikhakhane SA/Swiss Celebration Group will perform in Durban on January 22, 2023, at the KuD'ta VIP Lounge at Wilson Wharf.

SA/Swiss Celebration Group stems from his latest album release Isambulo. Sikhakhane explains: This collaboration was realised when I was ‘Artist In Residence’ in Switzerland under Pro Helvetia’s programme back in 2021, where we explored notions of revelation in the midst of uncertainty and what it means for sound to be a vehicle that enables us to travel beyond our human imagination.

“Revelation through sounds is a disclosure of sacred realities and a continuous process for discovery”.

This tour serves as a celebration pursuit as they reflect on some of the findings and gifts the sound has brought to the fore. Recently named the Standard Bank Young Artist for Jazz, Sikhakhane kickstarts the year with a stellar line up featuring Swiss musicians; Lucca Fries (piano), Jonas Ruther (drums), French bassist Géraud Portal, South African vocalist and old-time friend Paras Dlamini (vocals).

The performance will take place at 16h00 on January 22, 2023, at Wilson Wharf in the KuD'ta VIP Lounge.

Entry fee: R100
