  • Club Bonafide 212 East 52nd Street New York, NY 10022 United States (map)

Shows at 7:30pm & 9:30pm:

Young South African jazz vocalist, Vuyo (Vuyolwethu) Sotashe, is quickly making his mark in the New York jazz scene. Sotashe moved to the NYC in 2013 after being awarded the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship to pursue Master of Music (Spring 2015) at William Paterson University. Since then, he has gone to win first prize at the very first Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival Vocal Competition in 2014, and was a finalist in the 2015 Thelonious Monk Competition, widely acknowledged as the most competitive in Jazz.

Vuyo brings to our stage the music he loves, inspired by the golden years of jazz in the 40s and 50s, but all seen through the lens of his native South Africa, with a modern personal touch that only he can bring. He is joined by some of the freshest new voices in the New York Jazz Scene.
