Cape Town, the South African ‘City of Jazz’, is home to many well-known jazzmen. Together with the Jazz in the Native Yards team, we aim at showcasing the many facets of Cape Town and international jazz, uniquely rich in its diversity and strong identity. In an intimate setting, we offer an opportunity to appreciate live music and a home-cooked meal, in respect and mindfulness of the performance. Jazz Night at Alliance Française du Cap is a seated concert for which booking is highly encouraged as seating charts and catering are planned based on reservations.
A regular event at Alliance Française du Cap, join us on the last Friday of the month! Kindly note that, exceptionally, the concert might be held on a different Friday due to public holidays or programme requirements.
Fresh from "The Future is Now" tour of the SADC region, the Tune Recreation Committee (TRC) features Clement Benny on drums, Nicholas Williams on bass, Reza Khota on guitar, Mandla Mlangeni on trumpet and multi-instrumentalist Mark Fransman.
The unit has performed to rousing applause at the 18th annual Cape Town International Jazz Festival, has been listed on the New York Times Best Albums Of 2017 and has recently been nominated for the South African Music Awards for Best Jazz Album 2018.
Bandleader Mandla Mlangeni says about their recent The Future Is Now: SADC Tour: “The focus of the endeavour is one that aims to build a documented heritage resource that challenges notions of colonial bias and seeks to expand a narrative of musicians, composers and artists through their own perspectives. Ours is an attempt to create a sustainable platform and network that for composers and musicians in a pairing of creative partnerships and collaborations with artists residing within the SADC region.”
