“I’m delighted to be the host of the upcoming JazzFix online series. I have a long history with the Cape Town International Jazz Festival and a deep love for the music culture it represents. I’ve been both a performer and a fan of the festival and I can’t wait to share the experience of Africa’s Grandest Gathering with local and international fans. This is an online event music lovers won’t want to miss out on. Let’s celebrate true South African musical talent,” said Unathi.
The first show kicks off on Saturday 27 February, 2021, with guitarist Jonathan Butler’s 2019 CTIJF Homecoming performance.
“I’m honoured to be featured as the first artist in the JazzFix online concert series. I can’t wait to share my performance at the last Cape Town International Jazz Festival with the world, plus a little something special we have included in the online experience. Join me as we relive the magic of Africa’s Grandest Gathering,” adds Jonathan Butler.
“Our team has been hard at work to bring you the very best of the Cape Town International Jazz Festival straight to your living room. We encourage fans of the festival and those who missed out to relive the incredible power of jazz with us. We’ll be showcasing South Africa’s most engaging talents and some true fan favourites, so don’t miss out on this online cinematic experience at JazzFix”, says festival director Billy Domingo.
