Bokani Dyer’s Radio Sechaba launches at Joy of Jazz ‘22

Bokani Dyer will be presenting Radio Sechaba on Joy of Jazz’s Dinaledi Stage on November 25th at the Sandton Convention Centre.

He joins the line-up of the 23rd edition of Mzansi’s premier jazz festival which takes place over the weekend of 25 – 26 November. Others on the bill include Mandisi Dyantyis, Msaki, Jimmy Dludlu and Duma Maswana.  

Dyer’s Joy of Jazz appearance is an opportunity for audiences to experience Radio Sechaba live and up-close. With an album set for release in 2023 through Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings, the project presents a further aspect to Dyer’s wide-ranging and singular artistic expression. “Most of my music up to this point has been instrumental and for Radio Sechaba I am singing much more,” says Dyer. “Adding words, and a literary component, is a much more direct way of sending a message which is what I want to do with the project.”

Other highlights of the Joy of Jazz include Gloria Bosman leading a glorious celebration of the music and legacy of the late grand matriarch of song, Sibongile Khumalo and the Horn Summit, A Tribute to Bra Johnny Mekoa which will honour the great trumpet maestro and founder of the Music Academy of Gauteng.
