FEYA FAKU SPIRIT UNIT: DESTINATION UNKNOWN
As we wrap up heritage month, we tip our hat to one of the sons of the sol who has made an immense contribution to South Africa’s cultural scene. We are talking of none other than Port Elizabeth’s Feya Faku.
The trumpet legend describes his approach to music as preparing in a way that gives space to the music to play itself.
As he brings the Spirit Unit, the idea behind this particular band is to explore a different sound, as opposed to the saxophone/ trumpet quintet. To this end, in some parts the band will be broken up to make space for duets and solo performances within the unit.
This dream unit is made up of astonishingly versatile musicians who have all worked with Faku and many other jazz legends in South Africa and across the world. After the show, a jam session will kick off under the leadership of Faku.
