JUDITH SEPHUMA

Dubbed “Queen of Afro-Jazz”, Judith Sephuma is a South African multi-award-winning vocalist who has sold out shows around the globe and with albums that continue to achieve multiple-platinum-selling status, her captivating voice is instantly recognised by fans of Jazz, Afro-Soul and Gospel. For Sephuma, 2021 is a momentous year: this is the year that her triple-platinum-selling album ‘A Cry, A Smile, A Dance’ turns 20. While she had already started to build a name for herself in the music world – and had performed at the prestigious North Sea Jazz Festival in 2000 – it was the release of the album in 2001 that sent her name soaring. “I believe ‘A Cry, A Smile, A Dance’ is a song of hope,” says Sephuma, “and performing at the Standard Bank Jazz Festival Makhanda is one such reason worth celebrating life”.
