This tour was a definite highlight of my visit to Cape Tour. I met our guide at a downtown hotel. After introductions and a drink we were driven to a home in the Cape flats former township area of Cape Town. During the drive our guides told us of the history of jazz centered on the Cape Colored people in Cape Town. Jazz developed in Cape Town as a expression of discontent and anger at the policy of apartheid imposed upon the people prior to independence in 1994. At our first stop we were greeted by our hosts who had prepare a delicious Cape Malay dinner for us. We enjoyed the dinner while talking to our host -- a renowned jazz vocalist and pianist based in Cape Town. After dinner he performed for us in his living room on a beautiful, antique, upright piano. The music was amazing! He performed for over an hour - every selection different but all enjoyable.
From there we journeyed to our second performer's home in another former township area. This musician welcomed us to his home. He was a young man who is a master of several instruments. His jazz was much more contemporary and, clearly, influenced by popular genres of music. His enthusiasm and love of jazz was clearly evident in each selection he performed.
I can't recommend this tour highly enough. If you are interested in the music, culture, lifestyle of South Africa and want an authentic experience -- this is for you!! Highly recommend!!

Simply the most unique opportunity that you will ever have. The evening was great. The guide is passionate about music, and the provides a nice back history while driving. To meet artists in their homes, dine on their home cooked meal, and have them play privately for you. Simply amazing!!!

Still humming after a great evening visiting some of South Africa's famous jazz musicians. Living room jazz sessions and good home cooking. Highly recommended!
