Vibrant Afro-jazz band Ubunye bring their new show to Buxton.

Featuring powerful vocalists from South Africa’s Kwa Zulu Natal region, combined with a dynamic rhythm section, and horn players from Leeds and Manchester, Ubunye’s music is a unique blend of contemporary jazz, Afro-pop and traditional Isigqui Zulu music.

“Ubunye is a joyous celebration and proof, should it be needed, of the creative energy and unity possible when cultures meet through the medium of music.”

Steve Mead, Artistic Director

“A really crowd pleasing show…full of life, love and vitality that completely lifts the spirit that joins audience and performers into one.”
