1 January 2023: Queen of Afro Jazz, Judith Sephuma
Start 2023 off on a high note with a vibrant performance by the Queen of Afro Jazz, Judith Sephuma, on 1 January 2023. The multi-award-winning artist and acclaimed singer will take the Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts stage to delight her fans with the rhythmical jazz flows they adore.
Her album, Power of Dreams, was released in 2019 and provides her music lovers solace and an enchanting experience through the mesmeric artistry of her songs, which allows her listeners to get a closer perspective of her world through the power of dreams.
Over the last two decades, Sephuma has shared the stage with international artists like Bebe Winans, Oletta Adams, Jonathan Buttler, Al Jarreau, Randy Crawford and Chaka Khan. Her collaboration with Michael Bolton, singing an old classic “Over the Rainbow” and another with Kenny G on the triple platinum seller “A cry, A smile, A dance” crowns Judith Sephuma as the best singer, and performer South Africa has produced. Enjoy an afternoon listening to world-class musical performances on the slopes of Table Mountain.
