The Acoustic Quartet @ The Jazzy Rainbow

Friday 2nd March
This performance by the Acoustic Quartet at The Jazzy Rainbow is 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.
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.
The project’s name is Acoustic Quartet, which will be playing their original compositions from the bands repertoire, which stems from the contemporary and straight jazz genre. The project is aimed at bonding young up and coming musicians around the Durban Kwa Zulu Natal to perform their own repertoire. Acoustic Quartet feels that there is a need to also encourage and engage with their community and share their musical ideas in order to create something unique by blending the musicians’ backgrounds and influences in music and channelling that energy through compositions which push the boundaries for both musicians and audience. “As the baton has been handed to us as the next generation of Durban musicians, it is important to maintain the legacy of previous generations who paved the way for us musicians” says band member Zolani Rafuza. The band comprises of Dalisu Ndlazi on bass, Thabo Sikhakhane on trumpet, Vuyolwethu Mjindi on piano and Zolani Rafuza on drums.
