About the bands:

Nomadic Orchestra - We are Nomadic Orchestra! We play brass music, we play dance music, we play intelligent music, and we play dumb music. We play whatever music we want to play and that’s okay because you come anyway.”

This motley crew of music nerds, fondly referred to as “The Nomads,” hail from the South African College of Music (UCT) in Cape Town and all have a deep passion for music performance and composition. The music keeps dance and groove at the centre of its inspiration and borrows from many different styles. Hip hop, afrobeat, ghoema, samba, ska, klezmer and various other sounds are blended into one cohesive, high-energy performance.

The Mthembu-Salter Powell Project - The project is an up and coming quartet hailing from Cape Town, made up of guitar, piano, bass and drums. The music being mostly made up of jazz contains fresh takes and arrangements of jazz standards from America and South Africa, with the intention of giving voice to lesser well known songs and composers. The repertoire also contains original music that draws from a variety of different influences such as blues, folk, South African jazz, classical music and many more. Their music takes you on a sonic journey from pieces that are energetic to sophisticated to soft and brooding sounds.
