Jazz set to take over the US Woordfees in March

Cape Town Music Academy (CTMA) and US Woordfees, in collaboration with Jazz in the Native Yards (JINY) – JAZZ IN THE QUAD & JAZZ IN KAYAMANDI – presents a series of top music events featuring some of South Africa’s most popular Jazz artists.

This is the second year in which CTMA is presenting a late night contemporary and jazz music and social venue at the Visual Arts Quad in Victoria Street, Stellenbosch. 

For those who are looking for some late-night entertainment, this great music venue is the place to be. There will also be DJs playing till late after the jazz shows. Festival artists can enter for free.

The series of concerts were inspired by the Jazz in the Native Yards initiative where audiences in Cape Town townships have opportunities to experience Jazz concerts in residential backyards.

This concept was started up by Koko Nkalashe and Luvuyo Kakaza and supported by Concerts SA. Koko Nkalashe says, “Cape Town has always been known for world-class Jazz Music. We are happy to bring these concerts to the US Woordfees so that new audiences in Stellenbosch might also enjoy our local jazz excellence.”
