Bring your dancing shoes and swing moves as the pennywhistles, horns and irresistible rhythm section play tunes such as the Casanova Jump, and Polly sings swing era standards. Featuring Strat and Lyndal on horns, Jug-man Gavan on the double bass, Misja Carbo on guitar and Steve Schultz on drums, we bring the Kwela groove to you, from Jo’burg via Victoria.
