Brian Litvin and Jabulani Bringing Township Jive, Zulu Maskande, and South African Jazz to Mariposa

Posted on

brianLitvinThe uplifting music, driving rhythms, and exotic dancing of Brian Litvin and Jubalani will transport you to South Africa from where most of the group hails.

Jabulani is a Zulu word that means “we are happy”, and that is a perfect description of how this group will make you feel.

They play a blend of Township Jive, Zulu Maskande, traditional Zulu music, and South African Jazz learned first-hand from street walking guitar players, migrant workers in hostels, and in the townships that bred these wonderful sounds.

The group has had the honour of performing at numerous memorial services in memory of Nelson Mandela, South Africa’s most famous son.
