Music: Jimmy Dludlu

Cape Town

With his stylish glasses, sharp suits and trademark chic trilby hat, guitarist Jimmy Dludlu has earned a reputation as South Africa's "hottest", "most stylish" jazz talent.

And indeed there’s a corresponding sharpness and clarity — a visual elegance — to his playing. With his relaxed approach to time and a smooth sense of melodic and rhythmic grace, Dludlu’s music is at once laid-back and uplifting. Tonota, his latest album, imbues these qualities with a soulful earthy sensibility.
