BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 PRODID:WYNTON MARSALIS CALSCALE:GREGORIAN METHOD:PUBLISH BEGIN:VEVENT SUMMARY:The South African Songbook - JLCO with Wynton Marsalis in New York DESCRIPTION:The South African Songbook. 8:00pm. Notes: The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis kicks off Opening Weekend in Rose Theater with a musical celebration of South African democracy, 25 years after apartheid’s end. Top South African musicians will join the orchestra to perform essential South African music, with each song chosen by a guest performer and newly arranged for the show by the JLCO. South Africa has long been a vibrant and unique jazz hub, and most of the guests featured tonight helped shape the sound of jazz as a new South Africa was being born—and the music performed this evening reflects the sound of a nation defining itself anew. Special guests include three New York-based South African vocalists – Nonhlanhla Kheswa, Melanie Scholtz, and Jazz at Lincoln Center fan-favorite Vuyo Sotashe – plus top instrumentalists joining us from South Africa: saxophonist McCoy Mrubata, pianist Nduduzo Makhathini, and vocalist and pianist Thandi Ntuli.
