Siya Charles

Siya Charles grew up in Gqeberha and was a member of both the Standard Bank National Schools and Youth Jazz Bands and, with a Master’s in Music in Jazz Performance from the University of Cape Town, she has gone on to perform internationally in Italy, Sweden, Norway, Nigeria, Botswana, and in most South African jazz festivals and performing venues. Her cultural and musical diversity is projected through the majestic and sonorous tones of her trombone and, true to her upbringing, her compositions fuse blissful jazz harmonies with graceful and irresistible African grooves, creating a musical experience not to be missed. Bolstered by some of South Africa’s top young South African musicians, this performance showcases the exciting future of South African jazz.
