Congratulations to our joint winners
It’s time to introduce the Emirates Pursuit of Jazz winner… And have we got a surprise for you.
After searching through hundreds of ambitious home-grown artists across the country, we narrowed it down to 10, then to the top 5 who battled it out on stage, in front of a live audience and our renowned judges.
After much deliberation, the judges have decided to choose not one, but two Emirates Pursuit of Jazz winners!
Congratulations to Gally Ngoveni and Siya Charles, the joint winners of the Emirates Pursuit of Jazz talent search.
They both possess such different, but equally incredible talents, representing that authentic South African jazz sound, which made it that much more difficult to pick just one winner. Gally wowed us with his bass skills and we were blown away with Siya’s trombone ability.
Their spectacular performances have earned them professional recordings of their own singles, which will be aired on Kaya FM.
They will also be taking their local sound to an international audience, as Emirates flies them to New York, where they’ll be performing live at the world-famous Blue Note Jazz Club, during the NYC Winter Jazzfest, in January 2019.
