‘South African History !X’

Fresh off a Japanese tour, Capetonian jazz musician Kyle Shepherd returns with a third album entitled ‘South African History !X,’ which, he explains in the video above, “pays homage to the languages of the first nation people” and brings to the front’s South Africa’s slave holding past.  Featuring an all star cast of Jono Sweetman on drums, Shane Cooper on bass, Buddy Wells on sax and the late South African jazz legend Zim Nqawana, this looks like it’s going to be a great listen.

The album teaser was made by the team behind the popular film Mama Goema: The Cape Town Beat in Five Movements (also featuring Kyle) which is now showing at the Cape Winelands Film Festival. If you’re in Cape Town, go check it out.
