Flamboyant trumpeter Mandla Mlangeni is back in town.

Mlangeni will join forces with two of the Cape’s innovative musicians, bass player Bydon Bolton and percussionist Ronan Skillen in a vibrant performance this Sunday 26 November at Kwa Sec, NY 138 no. 52 Gugulethu from 4pm.

This unique improvisatory offering, which forms part of the Jazz in the Native Yards sessions is sure to excite the avid musical connoisseur.

Brydon Bolton is best known for his broody and pioneering improvisational forays in the Benguela.

Together with long time musical ally Skillen, who has long been exploring the fusion of tabla, percussion and didgeridoo by means of a hybrid percussion kit which he designed.

This ensemble is best described as trying to “develop music and sound forms that challenge idiomatic or conventional expressions” by Bolton. Nowhere more so than in this trio with Mlangeni and Skillen where the ensemble explore the interactions between composition and improvisation.

Expect intense and imaginative, spontaneous folkloric freestyle chamber sonicscapes, layered with jazz improvisation and pulsating beats.

Tickets are R70 at the door/ R50 for students and pensioners.
