Ikapa Jazz Movement’s fourth edition of the Cape Town International Jazz Festival After party is happening on Sunday.

This weekend sees Cape Town hosting the entire continent and the whole world in the biggest jazz event on the continent.

iKapa Jazz Movement will be hosting its sister organisations from six provinces under the auspices of the South African Jazz Appreciators Association (Sajaa).

This being the fourth edition of this annual jazz get-together, join the hordes in Langa for a no holds barred social session.

Langa, the mecca of jazz, will be ablaze with sounds, creativity and sheer hard jazz.

Jazz players from other provinces will play their collections from Swing to Afro Jazz to Hard Bop and Jazz Classics.

On stage will be young, raw and fresh talent from our townships, with girls from ages 13 to 15 years blowing their mean horns.

Pleasure is assured. Gcinikhaya Mnyamana, a multi instrumentalist is unearthing a generation of developmental jazz gems from the dusty streets of Khayelitsha and beyond.

The main attraction is Nono Nkoane who hails from Langa.

Nono comes from a well known musical family where all musical genres were the staple food of the household, with jazz as a speciality.

Nono has travelled the world over and has received rave reviews for her repertoire.

The All Star Band promises to woo the audience with the best jazz sounds.

iKapa Jazz Movement and the South African Jazz Appreciators Association are grateful to espAfrika for their continuous partnership and assistance.

We are particularly thankful to Billy and Eva Domingo, China Dyira and the rest of the management team for their time, business training advice and resources.

This year they have specifically identified and trained a youngster in project and stage management.

Our “resident” programme director Geoff Mamputa will be joined on stage by one of Cape Town’s foremost music teachers and a specialist in all types of saxophones.

John Ntshibilikwana is himself a great jazz artist and has produced a host of refined horns men.

He currently leads a Jazz ensemble where he plays with Professor Bennet Alexander who is attached to Cape Peninsula University of Technology.

We draw our strength from those who came before us, the great jazz giants of yesteryear.

It is in respect of their unselfish offerings to jazz in the form of performance and sharing their vinyls of old and modern CDs that musical journey continues in earnest.

We invite you to the after jazz party at the Johnson Ngwevela Hall on Sunday April 2 from 2pm.

Bring the family, friends, spouse or partner.

Come and listen to elevated music that stimulates and awakens the mind.

Cooler boxes are welcome. There is a cash bar is on offer.

R150 each person a seat and a plate of sumptuous food or R100 for a seat only. Bring your dancing sghoes along too.
