Hailing from Maputo, but based in KwaZulu-Natal and a steady fixture in the Durban jazz scene, Ildo Nandja is currently on the European circuit while pursuing further studies in the Netherlands. His performance at Luthuli Museum will showcase some of the material he’s been experimenting with while overseas.

As an activist and peace builder involved in community building, Nandja’s music is an instrument and a medium that brings awareness about the state of the world, addressing issues such as unity, justice, equality, gender and social cohesion amongst many more aspects that are relevant in contributing to the betterment of society.

He uses his African rhythmical abilities and expertise to express advanced harmonic concepts in his compositions. His sound blends Pan African rhythms and melodies with Jazz, European and contemporary music influences. These musical diversities reflect his experiences and the result is a combination of an experimental interdisciplinary sound.

“The audience can expect a vibrant and engaging groovy performance that includes local and familiar jazz sounds, but also very exotic sound elements that I have been experimenting with” says Nandja.

Joining Nandja on stage will be Neil Gonsalves on keyboard and Riley Giandhari on drums.
