On February 19, Double Bassist Herbie Tsoaeli was back at The Orbit with the Afrikan Time Ensemble. The ensemble performed new songs (a stunning tribute to Zim Ngqawana was among them), along with old favorites like Work and Wait and I’ve Been Thinking About You.
The new Afrikan Time ensemble now features Linda Sikhakhane on tenor saxophone, Nhlanhla Daniel Mahlangu on alto saxophone, Lungile Kunene on drums and Mncedi Kupa on piano.
African Time music was as capturing and deeply emotive as ever, showing Tsoaeli’s ability to pick and combine musicians that compliment each other. The bond between the musicians was beautiful to see, and even more delightful to hear.
