Township Jazz

I've not updated for a while because there's been a lot of work on - assignments for the New York Times, an intriguing diamond story and some paparazzi jobs thrown in.

One of the highlights of the last month or so was the Exiles 're-initiation' concert celebrating the re-opening of Parliament. It starred Louis Moholo and his 28 piece big band. I'll post a photo sometime soon.

For now here's a photograph from an on-going essay on township jazz. Double bass player Porkie Klaas with Soulman Penny in the background. I exhibited some images in this series at last year's Cape Town International Jazz Festival.
