The national Winter Jazz Festival is back and Kaya FM will be resenting this year’s event happening on 12 and 13 June in Cape Town, Grand West Casino and Johannesburg, Carnival City.
The line-up includes R&B star Musiq Soulchild, the world-renowned South African-born musician Jonathan Butler with special guest Oleta Adams as well as other surprise home-grown guests.
South Africa’s favourite son (Jonathan Butler) returns home and this time he’s bringing his friends. The Grammy Award winning Butler is no stranger to the local music festival scene.
His Jazz, Soul and Gospel sounds make him a firm favourite on home turf. And this time, Jonathan is bringing fellow musicians Oleta Adams and Euge Groove from the US to connect with his roots.
These are some of the music industry’s hottest artists who will be jetting into South Africa to do a two-night performance in both Johannesburg and Cape Town to help dispel those mid-winter blues.
The program runs parallel over both evenings of Friday 12th and Saturday 13th June to give fans in both cities equal opportunity to enjoy the show.
Oleta Adams brings the perfect foil for Butler together with her own brand of R&B and Soul, which without a doubt will be a winner with the local fans.
Making his South African debut, Euge Groove boasts nine studio albums and thirteen number ones behind his name – although his music is no stranger to South African ears as he has topped many local radio charts.
The second international line up to grace the stage is the legendary Musiq Soulchild – all the way from the USA – which is bound to be one of the most anticipated performances of the year on the local music festival calendar.
His debut album Aijuswanaseing (I Just Wanna Sing) sold over one million units in the US, with his latest singles already topping the charts locally.
