Bayete
The rhythms of South Africa are fused with the improvisation and dynamics of jazz by Soweto-born multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Jabu Khanyile and his eight-piece band, Bayete. Although they went through a major personnel upheaval in 1993, with only Khanyile remaining, Bayete continues to be one of the most respected bands in South African music. In 1994, the title track of their album Mmalo-We received a South African Music Award as Song of the Year and led to Khanyile being named Best Male Performer and Thapelo Kgome
