South Africa Now! Concert Series

Partnering with the South African Ministry of Arts and Culture and the TD Ottawa Jazz Festival, we’re proud to introduce this important new initiative to showcase one of the world’s most musical cultures to Canadian festivals. Legacy artists Abdullah Ibrahim and Louis Moholo-Moholo (in exile for decades in London) sit at the heart of this year’s Jazz Festival. Joining them are brilliant jazz pianist Kyle Shepherd, Polaris prize nominee singer songwriter Zaki Ibrahim (born in BC) and today’s South African superstars Freshly Ground. Our hope is to begin a long and fruitful relationship with the music of South Africa.
