Quietly engaged in the Bristol music scene and recently conquering stages all over France, Sisanda Myataza has had numerous sold out shows. Since her arrival in Bristol she’s presented a live-gig series aptly titled, Songs and Stories from South Africa capturing her audience by sharing anecdotes of her time in her native country, while connecting them to the music of yesteryears’ African jazz giants.
