Through his collaborations with musicians throughout the world the renowned Italian trumpter Paolo Fresu has been able to add new fl avours to jazz as well as attract new audiences to the form. Here Fresu, on a musical visit to KZN, takes a special voyage through South African township jazz with the guidance of the KZN Vintage Legends Orchestra, which includes the legends Theo Bophela and Ndikho Xaba, both in their seventies. Encompassing great performances, the role of music during Apartheid, and the experiences of exiled musicians, Zulu Meets Jazz is a music lover's dream.
