I'll be updating my blog more regularly now (long story), which makes me so darn happy.
Brief update - Sathima did a performance this past January at Sweet Rhythm, and her daughter Tsidi (a.k.a. Jean Grae) joined her onstage to rap on Sathima's tune "
I move that Buster Williams becomes the bassist for every hip hop album created here on out.
Might be some exciting news with an uptown jazz club, and a South African university. Not saying anything more until we have confirmation!
Closing out, I know I talk of this guy a lot, but he's just so fantastic. I'm speaking of Louis Mhlanga, the guitarist. On his marvellous album Tinganekwane, he opens with a bouncy, Mali-esque track called "Mari Hakuna." And, bonus, there is a music video! Have a look/listen!
