Recently seen at the Centre for Jazz and Popular Music, Steve and Lu held the audience in awe with their combination of complex rhythms and inspiring vocals.
The beautiful Lu Dlamini has years of experience as backing singer to some of South Africa’s iconic musicians, namely Brenda Fassie, Sipho ‘Hotsticks’ Mabuse and Jonas Gwangwa, amongst others. Her talent for interpretation and the facility with which she creates music is testimony to her upbringing in a family known for its musicians. Legendary Steve Newman, who has collaborated with a variety of world class musicians and travelled all over the world with his box, defies generational attitudes as he continues to explore his instrument.
That two wise and wonderful people should find each other and play together is one of music’s tuneful miracles: Lu is a composer who develops melodies and lyrics on her feet and Steve is a man who needs a lot of space and freedom. The stark simplicity of guitar and voice is taken to another level by these virtuoso musicians who combine experience with a creative approach and who deliver world class music at your door step.
