Get ready for the invasion of wild musical animals when Tanga Zoo takes to the stage at Centre for Jazz and Popular Music at the University of KwaZulu-Natal Howard College campus at 6pm on Wednesday, February 15.
Andy Brugger, one of Switzerland’s most accomplished jazz- and funk-drummers, and a teacher at the Zürich College for Music (ZHdK), leads the band, which includes Jean-Pierre Schaller (bass), André Kunz (guitar), Marc Jufer (reeds) and Kriz Flueler (trumpet/electronics).
No stranger to South Africa, having toured here twice, Tanga Zoo fascinates with its hypnotic grooves and virtuoso playing. It’s not jazz, it’s not funk – it’s both. But you won’t be missing some soulful melody’s either.
The Centre for Jazz & Popular Music (CJPM) is on level 2 of the Shepstone Building at UKZN. Doors open 5.30 pm. Tickets will be available at the door for R70 (R45 pensioners and R20 students).
