JAZZ’AFRO Sundays is proud to present the Port Elizabeth-born singer-songwriter, Thokozile Makamba, at The Barn Theatre, PE Opera House on Sunday, April 14.

Makamba’s lively performances vary from dance music and acoustic sets to neo soul and jazz-inspired pieces. Like many other vocalists, she began singing in choirs and musical theatre in her school days and stepped into the house music scene in 2008, working with Point 5 and other house music producers and DJs.

She featured on Point 5’s debut album, on a song called All in the Way.

She later joined the band, Clique Claq, as lead vocalist in 2011 and the group has gone on to perform at various events and festivals in and around the Bay.

As a performer, Makamba has gone on to headline the Opening of the Season in Nelson Mandela Bay, together with idols finalists Bevin, Keegan and Loyiso.

She also graced stages such as the Ebubeleni Festival as a backing vocalist for Monea, Corona Beach Camp and Numb City, among others.

In 2017, Makamba collaborated with Luke M and DJ Euphonik on the song, Apologies, which was on high rotation on national radio and TV stations.

Last year saw the artist opening for afro soul singer, Berita, and joining forces with DJ/producer, Pascal Morais from the Netherlands, on the track titled Better Days.

Admission is R70 per person and R50 for pensioners.

Bookings can be arranged through Cingiwe Skosana at cingiwe.skosana@gmail.com or through Nomgcobo Mkize at nomgcobomkize@gmail.com.

A cash bar will be available at the Ideas Corner (upper foyer) and the sweet counter on the ground floor, opens an hour before the show begins and for an hour after the show.

The show starts at 17:00.
