Siya brought along her swinging sextet for us to record and share with you!
We hope you enjoy every moment of this light-hearted, joyous music that is sure to have you humming its melodies for days to come. Added to this is the absolutely stellar line-up of local talent: Blake Hellaby (piano), Zeke Le Grange (tenor sax), Show Komori (trumpet), Sibusiso Matsimela (bass) and Damian Kamineth (drums).
While COVID-19 and all of the lockdown restrictions have hurt the music industry incomprehensibly, a concert like this serves to remind us all, musicians and audience alike, just exactly what it is about music we love - the joy and happiness it brings into our lives!
So be sure to buy a ticket and support some of the people that would sincerely appreciate it - especially during a time such as this - and they'll show you just how much fun music can be!
