Ringo Madlingozi to lead sensational jazz line-up at Birchwood
Iconic Afro-Soul vocalist, Ringo Madlingozi will be joined by multi-nominated SAMA Award group, The Muffinz, and acapella group, Uncunthu The Firm – Africa, to present an eclectic mix of soul-soothing sounds at the Ekurhuleni Comes Alive Jazz Evening, taking place at Birchwood Hotel in Boksburg on Friday, March 9.
Needing no introduction, Sindile “Ringo” Madlingozi, will be headlining the evening with his inspirational, spiritual rhythms. Ringo has racked up a number of awards over the years including Best Male Vocalist at the South African Music Awards as well as Best Male Artist (Southern Africa) and Best Male Vocalist (African Continent) at the Kora awards.
Supporting Ringo are The Muffinz, five vocalists whose music is best described as a fusion of a variety of genres. Their unique sound, including drums, harmonies, guitars and base, has seen them perform at the Confederation of African Football Awards and at the Sounds of Soweto experience.
Opening the evening is upcoming local group, Uncunthu The Firm – Africa, consisting of four talented afro-pop and soul vocalists who are making a big splash on the Johannesburg music scene.
Resident MC Hector Motivator will direct the evening’s entertainment, while comedians Schoolboy and Chik Aljoy are guaranteed to have guests in stitches with their much-loved ventriloquism and local humour.
Avid fans and followers of local entertainment will not want to miss out on this star-studded line-up.
