Sacred Heart jazz band TBC made its mark at the Bassline Africa Day Fest at Constitution Hill on May 26 as the band gave an electric performance.

The band, which consists of five learners from the school, said it was an honour to be able to share the stage with legends.

The band opened for the five-time Grammy Award winners Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Malian icon Salif Keita and Nigerian pop sensation Yemi Alade to mention a few.

“The experience was humbling and exciting. We really appreciated this opportunity,” said Biko Gwanda, the drummer.

The band performed cover songs which got the crowd dancing and singing along.

They also performed one of their original songs written by band member Angel Gwanda, titled “Jozi”.

The song talks about the bustle that happens in Jozi.

“The song was inspired by what I saw happening around Joburg after I went hunting for holiday job and seeing how people hustle and bustle in the city,” said Angel.

Sacred Heart Marimba Band also performed at the fest.

This was the 14th Bassline Fest.

The fest provides a platform to celebrate African vibrancy, diversity and globalism through music.
