Mabida Bay Jazz Orchestra
The Madiba Bay Jazz Orchestra is a creative platform of emerging artists whose mission is to take original Mzansi classics to another level – with fresh and lush arrangements performed in a formal Big Band setting.
All the musicians who are brilliant soloists in their own right, revel in expressing their artistic creativity in unique arrangements while playing inventively and with great passion.
The end result is Mzansi jazz with a dynamic orchestral sound. For their performance at the Standard Bank Joy of Jazz, the Madiba Bay Jazz Orchestra will be joined by leading vocalist Phinda Matlala and Sisonke Xhonti on tenor saxophone.
