All-female pop-jazz Heels over Head are honored to come back to the Museum for this unique celebration of love.

“We have a lot of respect for Chief Albert Luthuli and Mama Nokukhanya Luthuli who were a duo of real heroes. We find it important to keep on sharing their story to every generation. We think that couples could learn a lot from the true love they had and the continuous fight they fought together to bring peace and harmony in the world,” says Thulile Zama, vocalist of Heels over Head.

The love of jazz music weaved these girls together towards to end of 2008 to form this unique musical force. Since then the girls are always occupied with composing, rehearsing and recording new music and with lots of performances around KwaZulu-Natal and the country.

Their music is referred to as smooth jazz or easy-breezy pop jazz, they developed a notable and clever signature sound that consists of current African-influenced music and uniquely rearranged standards.

The band is known for making the audience get on their feet and dance to their rhythmic bass lines and their cheerful melodies.

With their sparkling stage presence the ladies always look classy and stylish and you cannot miss the charm and charisma of their lead vocalists Thulile Zama and Nomkhosi Mazibuko. They are joined by skilled drummer Rebekah Doty and accomplished pianist Mandy Cobbing. Last but not least smoking hot guitarist Chillie Wardell-Stent joins the band and the flaming fusion of musicians is complete.

No doubt that fans take joy in listening to some Heels over Head; the African jazz ambiance, skilled musicians and vocalists and well-founded rhythm works enchanting.

Joining them for this special concert will be music-poetry group Ubuciko The Art. This group was established in year 2011 when the members met at the University of KwaZulu Natal.

The trio is fascinated by the power of expression through visual and musical art form, which is why their passion is derived from talent, love and compassion for the arts. Ubuciko The Art is a group consisting of three members - Nhlanhla Mzobe from KwaMashu (recorder player), Lucky Swele from Limpopo (guitar) and Nkululeko Mchunu from Hammarsdale (poet, dancer, and writer).
