Abavuki on Afternoon Express

Abavuki

African jazz group Abavuki will be performing on Afternoon Express this Heritage Day.

Abavuki are a group of musicians from Langa, a township near Cape Town in South Africa. The name “Abavuki” means “Wake up, early birds!” and refers not only to their youth, but also to their philosophy of seizing the moment and getting things done for themselves. They developed a love for music at a young age and started playing with various groups.

Towards the end of 2001, they came together and began creating their unique brand of African Jazz. Using marimbas, percussion and brass instruments they weave traditional African rhythms and melodies into a contemporary format, which is highly danceable and almost Latin American in feel.
