Friday 13 and Saturday 14 July
These performances by Joe Nina at The Jazzy Rainbow are part of the Concerts SA Venue Circuit which aims to foster a love and support for live music in our communities, as well as anchor small and medium sized venues in urban and rural Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, and the Western Cape.
Joe Nina is set to be back on the Durban stages with two live performances at the Jazzy Rainbow on 13th and 14th July 2018.
Nina, whose latest album Time II Time saw him back on the stage at the SAMA24 award ceremony, bringing the crowd to their feet, has had a brilliant 28 years musical career, with 27 albums to date. Nina has produced and written songs for excellent musicians such as Stompie Mavi, Ringo Mandlingozi and the African Jazz Pioneers, working alongside Victor Ntoni, Ray Phiri, Sbongile Khumalo, Tsepo Tshola, Patricia Majalisa, Sharon D and countless other talented musicians.
Joe Nina writes from a perspective of distance, celebrating interludes between lovers, lives and the road that leads from the township to the big city. His music appeals to the heart; it enraptures the soul and speaks loudly to his African heritage. He is a musician ahead of his time and this, together with his unique music skills, has earned him not only the enormous respect from his generation but also many significant music awards and achievements, such as three SAMA Awards, a Jozi FM award for contributions to Kwaito and Afro-soul music, and Kwaito Artist of the Decade (YFM / MTN Awards).
Remaining true to his commitment to the development of local musical talent, Nina will perform alongside some of the most talented students from the University of Kwazulu-Natal. These intimate concerts will see Joe Nina in his most enthusiastic performing moods, bringing the audience to a guaranteed appreciation of his timeless sounds that have- and continue to- set a definite landmark in the South African music scene. “Music is my life” states Joe Nina.
