SA’s multi-award winning Jazz star Talie Monin has launched a special edition Heritage Month playlist on Spotify. Showcasing some of South Africa’s finest musical talent, the playlist pays respect to the icons of local jazz. Names on the list include Hugh Masekela, Miriam Makeba, Dorothy Masuku, Abdullah Ibrahim, Sibongile Khumalo and many others.
“Curating this list was intimidating, and a delight, all rolled into one!” says Monin. “These artists are icons, they are the benchmark of South African jazz and they inspired me to chase my dreams. I can’t think of a better musical tribute for Heritage Day”.
A standout vocalist since her earliest days growing up in Johannesburg, South Africa, Talie Monin, (Nqobile Mchunu in her native Zulu) won numerous local singing contests and was deeply inspired by the contemporary jazz music her parents, aunts and uncles surrounded her with.
