Jazz music has been an integral part of social gatherings in South Africa, particularly in urban areas like Cape Town. It is weaved into the fabric of the city. Both food and jazz are platforms of expression linked to culture, history and commentary. At Makers Landing this Winter, we want to create a vibrant, intimate atmosphere that brings people together by converging live music and food resulting in an enjoyable multi-sensory experience.

Kujenga is an afro-jazz band based in Cape Town. The word ‘kujenga’ comes from the Swahili language and it simply translates to “build.” The name symbolises the band’s belief in their calling as musicians; to build and create meaningful experiences with every single listener, through their art. The core band comprises a four piece rhythm section featuring; Owethu Ndwandwe on lead vocals and keys, twin brother Zwide Ndwandwe on bass, Thane Smith on electric guitar and Skhumbuzo Qamata on drums. The larger ensemble includes Bonga Mosola on trumpet, Matthew Rightford on Alto Sax, Tamzyn Freeks on trombone and Jerome Sitingela on percussion. Kujenga’s music is a combination of different genres which come from the African diaspora, with Black improvisational music being the central point of the band’s sound.
Kujenga released their debut album Nationality in 2019, an album which explored various themes including Africanism, spirituality, and political expression. Kujenga is currently working on their second full length studio album.
