From The Soul: The Feya Faku Four-Tet ft. Sydney Mnisi

The Orbit Jazz Club
Sat 15 December   /   R160

One of South African jazz’s favourite sons, Feya Faku, returns to The Orbit on Saturday, 15 December. Also one of the country’s most treasured exports, Faku was born in New Brighton, Port Elizabeth – a town often referred to as a Jazz Academy that brought forth a great number of jazz musicians.

He has collaborated with Barney Rachabane, Thandie Classen, Duke Makasi, Pat Matshikiza, Basel Coetzee, Winston ‘Mankunku’ Ngozi, and Bheki Mseleku, and Abdullah Ibrahim to name a few. Internationally, he has worked with Dave Young, Gustavo Begalli, Larry Ridley, Colin Vallon, Andy Sherrer, Paul van Kemenade, Eric van der Western, Brice Wassy, Malcom Braff, Samuel Blaser, and Frederic Ljungkvist.

On his last visit to The Orbit for the year, Faku brings his Four-Tet.

“The idea is to play songs that speak to my heart organically. This can only be achieved if the musicians commit themselves musically and otherwise.” – Feya Faku
