The Hound Dog


Fri 8th Mar | 8:00pm

Ubunye (one ness) unites singers from Kwa Zulu Natal with musicians from Leeds in an inspirational blend of styles and cultures. High energy beats and traditional vocal sounds combine with Jazz and Gospel and morph into new contemporary styles. At times it's energetic at other times delicate and quiet. High energy African beats and traditional sounds morph into more contemporary African musical styles. Bring it on!

Best Ensemble Parliamentary Jazz Awards 2023

“ A really crowd pleasing show from Ubunye at Hull Jazz Festival. Full of life, love and vitality that completely lifts the spirit that  joins audience and performers into one. “ – David Porter, Director Hull Jazz Festival.

“Ubunye is a joyous celebration, and proof, should it be needed, of the creative energy and unity possible when cultures meet through the medium of music. Rejoicing in their wide-ranging backgrounds, ages and styles, they were a surefire hit with the Manchester Jazz Festival audience, uplifting the soul with their close vocal harmonies, undulating rhythms, and affirmative lyrics, and with a powerful facility to reach and affect listeners far beyond the reaches of jazz.” – Steve Mead, Artistic Director, Manchester Jazz Festival
