Andiswa Maduna @ The Jazzy Rainbow

Friday 1st June
This performance by vocalist Andiswa Maduna at The Jazzy Rainbow is part of the Concerts SA Venue Circuit Programme, 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.
Durban’s jazz lounge, The Jazzy Rainbow, in association with Concerts SA, launched its first straight jazz programme on the eve of Heritage Day in September 2016 and continues to follow up with the same concept “#JazzyStraightAhead is about introducing regular, live, straight jazz concerts to our city in order to help keep the music alive,” says Oliver-Rene Haas.
Andiswa Maduna hails from Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu-Natal. She is currently studying jazz and popular music at the University of Kwazulu-Natal. Maduna started singing at a young age and took part in school choirs. “Having started off singing Choral and gospel music, I can say that those experiences have taught me to be a more versatile singer” she asserts.
In her musical endeavours she has worked with various gospel artists including Mthokozisi Zakwe, Khombi Mthanti, Israel Mkhize, Thina Zungu, and Dudu Gazu as their backing vocalist. Maduna is now working on her own brand stating “I have a story and I want to share my story with the rest of the world”.
On the night she will showcase her ability to sing songs and music out of the straight jazz genre, and will be accompanied by Obakeng Thamage on piano, Senzo Mdamba on bass and Lesedi Tlholoe on drums.
