World jazz artist Frank Paco brings fresh tracks from his latest album, New Horizons and his previous albums on Sunday 5 February at Kwa Sec, Ny 138-52 in Gugulethu.

This gig, which forms part of the Jazz in the Native Yards’ Summer Jazz Series is made possible by Concerts SA, 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 to support live performances across South Africa.

Born in Mozambique, Frank started playing when he was 11 years of age, from drums that were made out oil canisters- such was the shortage of musical instruments in the war-torn country at the time.

From these humble beginnings, Frank’s career has been meteoric and has seen him perform with some of the greatest musicians around the world.

He has played in the 46664 Mandela AIDS concert, performing with Queen’s Bryan May and performed with Roger Taylor, Bono, Peter Gabriel, Jimmy Cliff and Jonny Clegg.

Frank is also a co-founder of Tucan Tucan, Virtual Jazz Reality, Loading Zone and Uhambo (Collab-Norway, Denmark, SA, Mozambique).

Frank will be joined by an exciting band made up of Blake Hellaby on the keyboards, including Cape Town based saxophonist

Buddy Wells and Sean Sanby on the bass guitar.

Tickets cost R60 for adults and R40 for pensioners and students at the door.
