THE Glenlivet JazzTown 2019 sees singer Yvonne Chaka Chaka, the Princess of Africa, making her debut on this stage at The Vodacom Durban July – Africa’s greatest race day.

The Glenlivet JazzTown will be at the Vodacom Durban July 2019 horse racing event, on Saturday 6 July 2019, for the third year running.

THE Glenlivet celebrates this year’s Vodacom Durban July theme with notable cultural icons headed up by Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Afro-pop duo Mafikizolo, and inimitable Kasi soul trio The Soil, who’ll all bring their unique nuances to THE Glenlivet JazzTown stage.

Guests can enjoy 5-star hospitality within an opulent glass-fronted marquee overlooking the race course, along with a turnout of South Africa’s top tier celebrities and influential personalities, while soaking up the vibe and taking in show-stopping performances by the three genre-defining music legends.

Last year the Glenlivet JazzTown marquee saw celebs like Masechaba Ndlovu, Bridget Masinga, Moetsoaledi Sefumo and Mzansi Magic stars Baby Cele, Unathi Nkayi and Musa Mseleku enjoying the vibe.

THE Glenlivet Brand Manager Keval Ramraj adds: ‘We entered into this partnership with a long-term view of creating a truly definitive jazz experience, and it’s rewarding to see how THE Glenlivet JazzTown has quickly become THE place to be at the Vodacom Durban July.  This is a partnership that brings together two definitive independent brands that set the standard in their industries, each with a legacy of excellence spanning centuries. This extends to our three genre-defining headline acts who are on par with the world’s best.’

The bands, DJs

Yvonne Chaka Chaka needs little introduction.  Discovered at 19, this multi award-winning songwriter has been at the forefront of South African music for 27 years. The Princess of Africa is also well known for her humanitarian work, and has performed for the late President Nelson Mandela and Oprah Winfrey. She’ll burn up the stage with hits like Umqombothi, Motherland, Makoti and Every Woman needs a Man.

Theo Kgosinkwe and Nhlanhla Nciza are the talented duo behind multi award-winning Mafikizolo. Their musical influences include kwaito and kwela and their hit track Ndihamba Nawe is on record as one of the most popular African songs of the 21st century.

Completing the stage set are three-part a cappella group The Soil, from Soweto.  Their infectious township style vibe – a fusion of township jazz, hip hop, Afro-soul and pop – is sure to have guests up on their feet until DJ Sumbody and DJ PH take over the decks.
