Where to see live jazz in Cape Town

Cape Town is a music-lover’s paradise, and no matter the genre that moves you, you’ll be able to find a venue for it. But there’s a special place for jazz here at the southern tip of Africa. The complex collision of cultures here provided the perfect setting for the genre’s development from this city’s very beginnings. By the 1960’s Cape Town was home to some world-famous jazz big wigs, including Basil Coetzee, Winston Mankunku, and Abdullah Ibrahim (known then as Dollar Brand). It was Abdullah Ibrahim who composed Mannenberg, the seminal and influential Cape jazz tune, recorded in a studio here in Cape Town on one of his brief visits to South Africa from exile.

Jazz in Cape Town is more than music. It is the story of slavery, and the struggle against apartheid. It’s about history and salvation and exile and freedom. Explore the jazz scene and you’ll peer into Cape Town’s past, with groovy riffs telling it like it is. Here is where you’ll find jazz in the Mother City.
