The Crypt jazz restaurant in the city centre is currently celebrating its annual month-long lineup of “women in jazz”.

The Crypt will highlight a few of Cape Town’s best jazz bands, led by, or comprised of, women during August. The venue will host professionals and students, stars and women starting to make their mark on local jazz, in celebration of female jazz musicians.

The programme hopes to engage the youth in the art of jazz and to reach out to audience members who may not have previously attended a jazz concert.

Jazz enthusiasts can expect to see artists like Sylvia Mdunyelwa, Zoe Modiga, Denay Willie, Amy Campbell, Amanda Tiffin, Amy Walton, Emma de Goede, Phathiswa Mangangane, Titi Tsira, Abigail Petersen, Lucrecia Rodriguez, Michelle Maxwell and Adelia Douw.

There will also be a performance by the Delft Big Band, which features a number of young jazz musicians, conducted by Ian Smith.V
