DJ BOB’S JAZZ CLUB
eSwatini South Africa
DJ Bob’s Jazz Club joins a stellar line up of live acts in a convivial setting in The Barn at Bushfire this year: Zara Julius is a multidisciplinary artist, social researcher and vinyl selector based in Johannesburg. Zara’s selections reflect her deep desire to travel land, seas and time. Her collection explores sounds from Africa and the Diaspora – Soul, Ethio-Jazz, Salsa, Afro-beat, and Cumbia are all on the decks. Zara is especially interested in the evolution of spiritual music forms from the African continent, and how they exist in the contemporary age in the form of “global bass” music.
Sethu Mzileni is a newcomer from Bhunya, Swaziland who started collecting in 2011 and was inspired by her father’s eclectic collection of Jazz, Funk and Soul which she fuses with her own love for Jazz and derivatives of. A mixed spectrum of music which focusses on improvised sounds and an emotive selection which serves as therapy to this young dj and her audience alike.
DJ Bubbles and DJ Bob have long been wardens of the Jazz and Funk genres and these two proponents of fine tunes have shared stages and traded records for many years. Bubbles is an integral part of the Jazz Club and a true champion of the underground for more than 20 years now. You can also catch Bubbles doing a guest slot and playing electronic music on the Firefly Stage. DJ Bob and these fine selectors welcome you to a friendly universe that is fast becoming a fixture at clubs and musical gatherings around South Africa. Sondela.
