An absolute favourite at our Lakota Jazz Festival weekend in 2021, Susanna Myataza is the kind of singer and performer who transcends you to a different place.
Music has always been a part of Sisanda Myataza’s life. From the legacy of her great great grandfather, the choral composer BB Myataza, to a love for the stage from an early age, the South African artist is a born performer both as a solo musician and in the various bands she’s formed part of.
Since the release of her debut solo album in 2016, Myataza has gone from strength-to-strength, including a performance at the Cape Town Jazz Festival alongside the likes of Kamasi Washington and Laura Mvula.
With her rich, soulful voice Myataza’s sound offers mellow jazz rhythms intertwined with Afrobeat influences.
