Pu2ma – Makes her Debut at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival (5 – April 2013)
Pu2ma made her presence felt at the prestigious Cape Town International Jazz Festival 2013. She performed on the Basil “Manenberg” Coetzee stage ahead of Internationally a-claimed artist Kirk Whalum. This is what Pu2ma had to say about her performance at the International Cape Town Jazz Festival 2013
“It is a great honour to be performing at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival – it’s not every day that a developing artist such as me performs on the Basil “Manenberg”Coetzee stage ahead of Kirk Whalum, while Jill Scott is preparing to go on stage after my show over at Kippies. I know I will surprise a lot of people; they must just come and see us do ourthing. My set takes me back home – you know those mornings when you wake up in PE and the sounds of Winston Mankunku and Ella Fitzgerald greet you as the first sounds you hear while another neighbour plays Mbaqanga – I plan to have a lot of percussive and soulful elements in the music, and will include a tribute to some of the artists that have influenced me musically and spiritually.”
Pu2ma performed at the CTIJF 2013 with a 7-piece band on Friday 5 April at Basil “Manenberg” Coetzee stage from 22h45 to 23h45. For programme.
