Marthe x Pilani Bubu.png

Last month, we hosted the French Jazz Quartet: Marthe for the first leg of the collaborative residency with Pilani Bubu. The collaboration between Marthe x Pilani Bubu is titled: Zîn Nôogo - Indaba, means a meeting to discuss important issues in Nguni and in Burkinabe.

It is the meeting of two worlds: that of the trans-oriental jazz rock of the quartet Marthe and the traditional South African folklore of Pilani Bubu, drawing inspiration from these Nguni, Zulu & Xhosa protests, prayers and songs. Zîn Nôogo - Indaba pays homage to the complex history of the South African people through the lens of South African Women.


Pilani Bubu will be heading over to France for a Spring Tour with Marthe to perform and record the forthcoming project.
