South African singer, Simphiwe Dana will set the Cape Town stages ablaze as she heads the African contingency at the 12th Annual Cape Town International Jazz Festival (CTIJF) alongside the legendary Senegalese singer Youssou N’dour.

On 25 March, 2011 the  Afro-Soul singer is guaranteed to draw a big crowd as she returns to the CTIJF stages at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, following a very successful 2005 debut which saw her original performance stage being reassigned to a bigger venue as she drew a larger crowd than originally envisaged.

“I feel a great sense of honour to be one of the artists chosen to perform amongst such acclaimed African musicians whom I respect a great deal. To share the stage with the likes of Youssou N’dour is definitely a career highlight for me,” says the bashful Dana.

Dana shot to the South African music scene with her internationally-acclaimed debut album ‘Zandisile’, which marked the path for the beginning of a successful journey for this admired songstress, lyricist, and producer.  Her albums have deservedly scooped-up numerous awards and recognitions in South Africa and abroad. With ‘Zandisile’, ‘One Love Movement on Bantu Biko Street’, and her latest offering ‘Kulture Noir’, Simphiwe Dana has collected 6 South African Music Awards (SAMA); 2 METRO FM Music Awards (Best Female Artist and Best Contemporary Jazz); 1 Avo Session Award in Europe (alongside Elton John who received The Lifetime Achievement Avo Session Award); a Metropolitan Eastern Cape Arts and Culture Award and numerous nominations, such as the BBC Radio 3’s World Music 2008 Awards, 3 METRO FM Music Awards nominations, Channel O Best Music Video Awards, just to mention a few.

Her music is now part of the curriculum at prestigious universities such as Oxford University in England and other academic institutions. Revelers at the CTIJF can look forward to hit singles such as “Ndiredi” from Zandisile, “Sizophum’elokishini” from Bantu Biko Street and “Ilolo” from the recently-released Kulture Noir, amongst other soul-enriching songs from Dana’s three albums.

The Cape Town International Jazz Festival will take place at the CTICC, on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 March 2011. Ticket prices for the 2010 festival are: R365 for a single day pass and R499 for a two-day weekend pass.
