Durban-based band, Heels over Head, will be performing at The Sound Café, Warne House, 5 Garlicke Drive, in Ballito from 7 pm on September 29.
The band won the Yamaha Young Talent Award in 2010 and has since independently releasing two music projects and been nominated for the South African Music Award (2011) for best contemporary jazz album. Recently they got an opportunity to go to New Orleans in the United States for the 2017 Essence Music Festival.
“The visits to the KwaZulu-Natal North Coast are always very special for us as a band,” says vocalist, Thulile Zama. “We have been through many changes of members throughout the years, but our North Coast fans always stayed loyal.
“We now want to organise this special concert in Ballito for them to show them that they have a special place in our heart. Last time we played at Luthuli Museum has been over a year now, so a visit was way overdue. We are hoping to see our fans from Mandeni and Stanger again.”
Drummer, Rebekah Doty added: “ In our repertoire we will include our classics like All The Things and Girlfriend since those are the songs people know us for. We also will add some unexpected covers and maybe even some new compositions and, as always, we will have something to dance too. I cannot wait.”
Joining Zama and Doty on stage will be pianist Taryn Kasaval and bassist Lee Ngidi.
