African jazz giants Pops Mohamed and Dave Reynolds are heading to Khayelitsha and Gugs.

The two will be performing afternoon concerts on Saturday and Sunday from 15:00 as part of the Jazz in the Native Yards series.

Famous for his collection and virtuoso on indigenous instruments, Pops is known for fusing unique sounds with local jazz, but he’s equally comfortable with world music.

Award-winning Dave Reynolds has shared a stage with greats like Andy Narell, Paul Hanmer, Hugh Masekela, Jeff Maluleke and Concord Nkabinde, to name but a few.

New to the territory of the sprawling townships in the Cape flats, Pops and Dave are equally excited to be part of these gigs which have been made possible by Concerts SA.

“It is important that we perform our music in all corners of our beautiful country,” says Pops.

“The young and not so young must be exposed to their own musical heritage that is mostly celebrated somewhere else.”

Dave says the repertoire is a mixture of world music, jazz and other musical influences from the African diaspora.

The duo will be at Moholo Live House, Ncumo Street, Harare Square, Khayelitsha on Saturday (4 June) from 15:00, before their show at kwa Sec, Ny 138 no. 52 Gugulethu at 15:00 on Sunday.

Tickets cost R80 at the door. Visit the “Jazz in the Native Yards” Facebook page for more information.
