Jazz at the lake


 

 

 The annual jazz on lake was hosted once again by the Arts alive to an overwhelming attendance.  The line up offered them  nothing but a good Sunday afternoon with a day of mesmerising performances.  With spring making its way the Johannesburg the weather was nothing but beautiful making it perfect for great music next to the lake.

This year the event saw the mixture of different sounds on one stage. The line up included the jazzy Melanie Scholtz, The rock band Watershed, The amazing 340ml, the legendary Victor Ntoni and the Indian group Rajasthan Rocks. Watershed brought their pop rock sound to the crowd, followed by the amazing 340ml with their amazing afro dub blues. Everyone was screaming out their lyrics as the band brought a fresh feel to songs from their two albums Moving and Sorry for the delay. Many would think that 340ml is one of the still unknown bands but anyone who attended the Jazz on lake gave the band a star treatment.  Tiago and Bergman are almost heartthrobs.

Victor ntoni calmed the crowd with his jazzy sound with the assistance of his talented background singers who shared the centre stage with him on a couple of songs. It was of course ASA who once again proved to be the crowd’s favourite. She graced the stage wearing a red dress that was perfect for the sunny weather. When she invited Simphiwe Dana on stage for the rendition of “Ey Adaba”. They took the whole show to a whole new level with their unique but powerful vocals. The mixture of  Nigerian Ska and well rooted Xhosa rhythms both made the venture a memorable one. This Nigerian born singer took them on a musical journey that they won’t forget anytime soon. With well rehearsed  band ASA creates a kind of performances that is crowd friendly as she interacts with fans throughout the session. Despite some complaining about the sound, ASA still maintained  her performance standard for which she has become well known.


With summer just around the corner, the jazz on lake was great way for music lovers to relax under the sun. Music proved to have the power to bring people together once again. As the very sunny Johannesburg reached sunset the music was still echoing through the lake.
