The Jazz Centre for Jazz and Popular Music will present Thobeka Ndlovu on Wednesday April 19 at 17h30.

Ndlovu is excited to return to the UKZN Centre for Jazz and Popular stage as there's a lot to speak about and present post Covid-19 pandemic.

Join Ndlovu and her great band at the UKZN Centre for Jazz for some incredible and fresh music. The music will take patrons on a journey from Ndlovu being jazz music student where she will present some of her favourite Jazz standards to her original songs which she has been working on with her husband pianist Ndumiso Ndlovu.

They will be joined by Senzo Mdamba (bass), Sivu Mdamba (drums), Sanele Ntombela (guitar) and special guests: Slash horns.

"One exciting aspect of this performance is that I am returning to the stage where I was groomed to be the vocalist that I am today; I will be exploring our compositions with the band, and thus the band is quite big. I typically perform with a four-piece band, so this will undoubtedly be an epic performance,” said Thobeka Ndlovu.
