JAZZ AND THE HARP

Rarely encountered and often dismissed as ‘niche,’ the jazz harp has become something of an exotic creature. Much more readily associated with the classical genre, the harp may at first blush seem like a strange addition to a jazz arrangement. The presence of the harp in jazz provokes many not readily answerable questions about the genre itself. Namely: to what extent can jazz complicate itself while still remaining ‘Jazz’?

SOUTH AFRICAN JAZZ

"Soundtrack of the Revolution" As Sisonke Msimang, writer of 'Always Another Country', eloquently puts it in four words. Soundtrack of the Resistance. A genre formed, moulded, re-invented to fight against an oppression; a musical method of a struggle visualized in blocks, cross-rhythms, chromatics, lydians and vamps - audible artworks designed to shout out the injustices. South African jazz was born into the Apartheid system and with its' birth came the growing of a bitter confrontation. This mix is in celebration of the otherworldly talent that has come out of South African jazz. A salutation.​
