Celebrating the joy of jazz

Head Over Heels will celebrate women and their role in jazz at the upcoming Jazz Super Session in Durban.

WOMEN and their role in jazz will be celebrated at the Jazz Super Session in Durban which forms part of The Road to Standard Bank Joy of Jazz campaign.

Performing at the event, which takes place at the Bat Centre on the Victoria Embankment in Durban on Saturday, 9 August from 2pm, will be the award-winning all woman jazz band, Heels Over Head while the concert features only women jazz presenters.

Renowned for their suave, sophisticated and sparkling stage presence, the band has found its groove and created a smooth, watertight brand of slinky soul-kissed contemporary jazz. Stylistic influences include maskandi, mbaqange, gospel, classical, funk, house and reggae, all of which are wrapped within their signature sound of easy breezy jazz-pop with an Afro feel.

Presenters at the Durban Jazz Super Session are Olebile Dikgetsi from a Northern Cape jazz club; Nomsa Fankomo from Mpumalanga and Felicity Mashodi from the Western Cape.

Jazz Super Session itself is free but there is a R150 cost that covers the cost of a two-course meal.
