Pianist, vocalist and composer Siphephelo Ndlovu formed the SN Project in 2016 to showcase his collection of original compositions that incorporates his South African culture with his knowledge of jazz. Ndlovu was born and bred in Johannesburg but attended the renowned Drakensberg Boys’ Choir School where his passion for music was really ignited and, after studying under South African jazz talents Andre Petersen and Carlo Mombelli, Ndlovu graduated from the University of the Witwatersrand with an Honours degree in Music in 2017. He grew up with the sounds of Gospel, Jazz and uMbaqanga, and his music thus interprets his cross-cultural childhood musical experiences to create a unique take on South African Jazz. ‘Afrikanization’, Ndlovu’s debut album, was released mid-way through 2020 and his beautiful, clear voice makes a startling impression from the very first track. The SN Project features a band of exciting young musicians, all of whom have roots in the Standard Bank National Youth Jazz Festival in Makhanda, and who are charting a new sound in South African jazz.
