Nicole Conte SA Tour
South African music events collective, Beleza, presents Italian jazz master – Nicola Conte – in a series of live performances set to seduce South Africans in Durban, Johannesburg and Pretoria between 24 and 26 November 2017.
Modern jazz artist, innovator and jazz style avant-gardist, Nicola Conte is set to bring the best of both worlds through his multi-layered, diverse and lush Latin, spiritual and soulful jazz sounds, as well as his sometimes energetic, fiery and wildly festive performance to South Africa.
Conte’s live band for the South African tour consists of Gianluca Petrella on trombone and Logan Richardson on alt saxophone and he will also perform with excellent South African artists such as Nduduzo Makhathini, Zoe Modiga, Thuto Motsemme, Tlale Makhene and Tumi Mogorosi.
Supported by Kaya FM and Jazz Foundation South Africa, Nicola Conte’s very first South African tour dates and venues are:
- The Chairman in Durban on Friday 24 November,
- The Mushroom Farm in Sandown, Johannesburg on Saturday 25 November,
- VIP jazz experience at Menlyn Central Park 3 in Pretoria on Sunday 26 November.
Seating is limited and tickets are available for purchase at the door and online TicketPro.
Expect an immersive live jazz experience – from elegantly mellow, sultry grooves to brazenly voluptuous listening that captures Conte’s distinct high energy, boisterous, spirited tracks infused with audacious Italian flair.
Nicola Conte’s catalogue is incomparably diverse. Naturally, this makes it difficult to box his music into one genre. Conte’s interpretation of Jazz is rooted in the complexities of traditional jazz while also lending itself to more innovative and contemporary, playful jazz or soul with a spiritual, deep Afro jazz vibe. He’s a master who knows the rules and breaks them gorgeously.
Music lovers can expect an immersive live jazz experience as they are transported from elegantly mellow, sultry grooves to brazenly voluptious listening. Conte has a very distinct style of high energy, boisterous and spirited tracks that are infused with his audacious Italian flair. South Africans in Durban, Johannesburg and Pretoria can expect to really get down – Italian style, of course!
