International Jazz Day Documentary Screening
The Original Jazz Masters are the oldest band in the country having started music in the 40’s and 50’s in the Old Location before the last forced removal to Katutura in 1968. The band comprises Joseph Petrus “Ou Gorab” //Hoeseb, Accordion, Stephanus “Kookwater” //Hoebeb, Tenor Saxophone/Banjo, Andreas Gustaf “Kuta” Kavandje, Bass/Double Bass, Frederick Ndiripunye “Karietjie” Kamburute, Alto Saxophone, Reinhardt “Toto” Muinjo, Drums/Percussion, Immanuel “Mannetjie” Shivute, Rhythm Guitar and Nghidipo Nangolo, Producer and Manager.
Township jazz and jazz genres have become popular in the local music scene and the Masters have played a major role as a source of inspiration for jazz musicians of almost three generations. Time has also eluded OJM members and this is the last opportunity to cement their legacy and give the mantle to upcoming musicians to run with as a token of appreciation to the legends of township music.
