Album Description

Born To Be Black: A Celebration Of The Conscious Soul is a twelve-track odyssey is intended to be a proclamative journey of musical meditation and healing. A journey into the less travelled. Musical territories where sonic realms are constantly in flux. Ours is a canvas of our imagination where our colours are hues of an ascending melodic line or the crescendo of boisterous horns grooving to the syncopated rhythms of a new song. The assemblage of such diverse musicianship has culminated in a much-anticipated offering that will surely proclaim the deep well of musical nourishment that exists in South African jazz today.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
