Artists who will perform at the upcoming UKZN Jazz Jol.

Funds generated from the Jol this year will be donated to the Durban chapter of Amnesty International. ‘This is an appropriate way to recognise the support of our local community for our student scholarship over these many years,’ said jazz lecturer Neil Gonsalves. ‘It also thanks them with funds going to the newly-established chapters of Amnesty International at the UKZN School of Law, the Nelson Mandela School of Medicine, and six local schools to set them on the path in their efforts to fight for human rights.’

Besides a performance by Brubeck, the concert will feature the UKZN Big Band as well as a host of Durban-based alumni, including Melvin Peters, Sazi Dlamini and SKOKIANA, Andile Yenana, Debbie and George Mari, Mfana Mlambo, and Natalie Rungan.

Anchoring proceedings will be bass player Ildo Nandja – who is visiting from the Netherlands where he is currently registered for a Master’s degree in Jazz Studies – and drummers Riley Giandhari and Bruce Baker.

The Jol starts at 7pm on April 6 with entrance costing R100, reducing to R80 for pensioners and R50 for students with a student card.

Phone Thuli on 031-2603385 or email Zamat1@ukzn.ac.za for more details.
