Reflected, contemporary jazz from South Africa

Portrait of Vuma Levin

The award-winning guitarist Vuma Levin is an alert, rising voice in the contemporary, South African and nowadays also international jazz scene. His latest album «The Past is Unpredictable: Only the Future is Certain” shows impressively, how he can further develop the South African traditional music of the Nguni-Sotho ethnicity with his brilliant, provocative compositions and combines it with jazz. An independent, self-confident and rich musical experience has been created!
