How it all started

Jazz in the Native Yards is a nomadic live jazz curator outfit, primarily based in Gugulethu with outreach to other townships like Langa ( Guga S'thebe ) . Other spaces beyond the townships but within the Cape Metro include The Alliance Francaise and jazz venues around the Central Business District and the Winelands. Jazz in the Native Yards is about creating social cohesion amongst people in the Cape and also a welcoming environment to visitors from outside the Cape and the townships.
