NSA Jazz & Pop Extravaganza: A Showcase of Next-Gen Leading Lights, Advocacy, and Legacy Celebration Featuring Pilani Bubu and Noxolo Seti

Author: JT Comms
Date: 4 Mar 2024

The National School of the Arts, renowned for being an incubator of the stars of tomorrow, brings to the magnificent Mandela Stage at the Joburg Theatre – The NSA JAZZ & POP Ensembles – in Concert for two unforgettable nights on the 8th and 9th March. 

Flavoured with South African music, the NSA band will be joined on stage by the impressive NSA Choir – rivalling the best in the land and featuring NSA vocalists, backing vocalists and solo instrumentalists, with the NSA dancers adding their flare to what promises to be an exceptionally entertaining and inspiring concert. These young artists will mesmerize audiences with their craftsmanship and infectious energy.

Adding to the allure of the evening are the guest appearances of acclaimed artists Pilani Bubu and Noxolo Seti. Audiences can anticipate an eclectic fusion of styles and a showcase of extraordinary talent that transcends generations and boundaries – in music, we are one!

Featured in the line-up is a tribute to the late Gloria Bosman, the artist in residence at the NSA at the time of her passing. It is an appropriate platform to celebrate her legacy. 

A firm friend and advocate of the NSA, the magnetic and soulful Pilani Bubu, whose FOLKLORE FESTIVAL has its home at the NSA, is looking forward to sharing the stage again with the NSA musicians.

Fusing her Xhosa roots and influences into her fresh sound is songbird NOXOLO, whose vision to connect and find ways to work with young musicians will again resonate on this NSA platform.

Musical direction is in the hands of Siyanqoba Dlungwana, with choir maestro Xolani Noveld and Lwazi Khuzwayo adding their expertise to the vocal direction. NSA alumni Ontlametsi Phutu is also a key player in the music department team. Award-winning Wilhelm Disbergen is lighting the show while matric learner Chidera Nwoha from the Dance Department is choreographing and emceeing the performance. 

Bookings for NSA Jazz & Pop Ensembles in Concert are through web tickets and Joburg Theatre. 

The tickets are affordably priced at R150 and R100 for students and pensioners. 

Led by the prodigious talents cultivated at the NSA National School of the Arts, this ensemble promises to deliver an unparalleled musical experience. 

"We are thrilled to showcase the exceptional talents of our students and celebrate the vibrant diversity of South African music," says Thabang Phiri, the Head of the Music Department at the NSA National School of the Arts. "This concert is a testament to our commitment to nurturing the next generation of musical pioneers and fostering a love for the arts in our community."

Multi-instrumentalist, acclaimed producer and NSA alumni Mpumi Dhlamini also joins the line-up of guests with his boundary-pushing, genre-bending sonic expression in the jazz world. With an enduring affection for his old school and a generosity of spirit, Mpumi is always ready to help shape and inspire the new generation of NSA artists. Mpumi Dhlamini also holds the reputation of having saved the iconic NSA School song, which may put in a surprise performance on the night, striking a chord in the hearts of all those who have ever sung the famed school song, which was composed by Wandile Molefe with lyrics by Anne Malabye.
