Lady Zamar, 2018 SAMA Award-winner for Best Dance Album, will provide Joburg East with an opportunity to dance their socks off on Wednesday, 8 August at the Birchwood Hotel in Boksburg. Joining Lady Zamar are Afro-Jazz songstress, Nokukhanya Dlamini, comedienne Celeste Ntuli and the Music Academy of Gauteng Orchestra in the August edition of the Birchwood Comes Alive Jazz Evenings.
Pretoria-based House Music artist, Lady Zamar, will headline the evening with her sensational hits inspired by everyday life and aimed at promoting positive change in the world. Putting her stamp on SA’s dance music scene, she has performed at the 2018 Miss SA Pageant and won Song of the Year at the DSTV Mzansi Viewers’ Choice Awards.
Versatile Jazz songstress, Nokukhanya Dlamini, will take to the Birchwood stage with her broad style of music; including Jazz, Afro-Jazz, traditional music and Soul. Having grown up in Empangeni, KwaZulu-Natal, Dlamini was first noticed as a member of a Gospel group that predominantly sang at weddings, has since had a long solo career and her albums have received plenty of airplay.
Opening the evening is the Music Academy of Gauteng Jazz Orchestra, a community-based NGO focused on musical education for youth from disadvantaged families and informal settlements, with a tribute to the late John Mekoa, legendary trumpeter and Jazz educator.
