The Centre for Jazz and Popular Music
proudly presents Lu Dlamini on Wednesday 03 August 2022 at 18:00.
Lu grew up in a family where her father as
well as at least three of her brothers played guitar.
The influence of Maskandi runs deep through
all South African genres and the guitar formed the very bed-rock of Maskandi so
it is only fitting that in order to carry our musical message through, the
guitar has got to be there.
The latest line-up of Lu’s band has two
guitars. As many of her compositions are conceived on guitar in many ways, this
is a home coming.
Consequently, her songs have been injected
a new more groove based energy.
