Mthunzi Mvubu Quartet

Jazz / Dsg Hall

Mthunzi Mvubu is an accomplished jazz saxophonist and flautist who started his music career at the age of 14. At first self-taught, he began studying at the Music Academy of Gauteng under the mentorship of Johnny Mekoa and toured to Britain, Sweden, USA and Germany with the Music Academy of Gauteng Jazz Orchestra, which opened his eyes to the international jazz scene. He has subsequently played on a multitude of stages around the world and has shared stages with names such as Abdullah Ibrahim, Themba Mkhize, Feya Faku, Thandi Ntuli and Tsepo Tshola. Mvubu has appeared on over 19 South African albums and, after recently signing with Ropadope Records, he released his debut album, The 1st Gospel.

We are grateful to Pro Helvetia Johannesburg, the Swiss Arts Council and Fonds Podium Kunsten Performing Arts Fund NL for making this performance possible.
