Jazz in the Cradle
Jazz in the Cradle is a day long festival, which brings together world class bands in a scenic space, complementing the natural ambience of the Nirox Sculpture park. Here Jazz lovers can also enjoy great food and wine on offer as they watch music on the lawn amphitheater of the sculpture park, which lies in the heart of the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site, 45 minutes west of Johannesburg and Tshwane city centers.
An event that started in response to an intimate performance by Zim Ngqawana in the music room at NIROX following his brief residency as artist, in the wake of the traumatic vandalization of his acclaimed Zimology Institute, attracted an audience of 500 aficionados in 2012. It is now in its 6th year and has grown to about 1500 Afropolitans (last years attendance).
Jazz in the Cradle is, supported by the NIROX Foundation, Gallery MOMO and CALEO in association with Standard Bank and Kaya FM 95dot9.
