iKhambi Album Nominated for Two SAMA Awards
South African pianist and composer Nduduzo Makhathini’s latest album, iKhambi, has been nominated for two South African Music Awards in the categories of ‘Best Jazz Album’ and ‘Best Engineered Album’.
Makhathini visited York twice as a team member of the British Academy Newton Advanced Fellowship run by Jonathan Eato (the University of York) and Stephanus Muller (Africa Open), and iKhambi was partly recorded in the Rymer Auditorium on Makhathini’s second visit. The recording also features saxophonist and composer James Mainwaring who is also PhD candidate at York.
The South African Music Awards <https://www.samusicawards.co.za/> are an annual event honouring South Africa’s finest music talent over two days in key categories.
iKhambi is released on Universal Records and is available digitally on iTunes and Spotify and on CD.
