Township Comets

Chris Batchelor - trumpet Pinise Saul - vocals Jason Yarde - alto sax Harry Borwn - trombone Adam Glasser - piano Dudley Phillips - bass Frank Tontoh - drums With their fiery infectious sound grounded in the irresistible harmony of South African jazz, the Township comets bring Afrovibes to a celebratory conclusion with the searing, joyous music of saxophonist Dudu Pukwana, a towering figure in township jazz. Known as 'the Queen of African jazz', the great Pinise Saul will be joining the Comets for this gig; infusing the concert with her unique African traditional harmonies and contemporary rhythmic style. Please note: This is a standing gig. Limited seats available. Lakeside is thrilled to be one of 17 partners nationally welcoming Afrovibes Festival. It is supported by Arts Council England and is part of the South African Season in the UK 2014 and 2015 organised by the South African Department of Arts and Culture.
