Jonathan Rubain, born and raised in Cape Town, played his bass guitar beautifully for his home crowd. Rubain, who started playing music in his local church at the age of seven, set up the Jonathan Rubain Band three years ago. They are definitely a name to watch.

Six-piece Japanese “death jazz” band, Soil & Pimp Sessions, has gained recognition for playing an original form of alternative jazz. Their brand of music is described by the Cape Town International Jazz Festival official website as “rough around the edges, unadulterated entertainment and constantly kept at boiling point”. The crowd appreciated their performance.
