Ntshuks Bonga’s Trio (with Brydon Bolton & Claude Cozen) at Tagore’s Jazz Bar [ 42 Trill Road, Observatory, Cape Town ] or if you can’t make it to Cape Town, tune in via PASS radio (click the live stream link on our home page)!
Burn in Jozi, Ntshuks has been resident in the United Kingdom since 1970. His playing, however, remains steeped in Xhosa folk music and that of the legendary South African bands exiled to this country, the Blue Notes and the Brotherhood of Breath.
He has collaborated with musicians such as Claude Deppa, Oren Marshall, Maggie Nicols and Louis Moholo-Moholo. Whilst sitting firmly in the lineage of the great Kippie Moeketsi and Dudu Pukwana, he is equally conversant with the impassioned sounds of players such as Peter Brotzmann and Albert Ayler.
