After nearly a year the popular weekly live music programme, Jazz’Afro Sundays at The Barn has returned and is kicking off with Bulelani Koyo.
Bulelani Koyo is a talented and dynamic young man who is no stranger to the entertainment industry. With a strong choral music background having released two albums in that genre, Bulelani has won the National Choral Music Awards (NACMA) as best Choral Music Presenter for three consecutive years. A student of life, a child of God who believes that we are called to worship in truth and in spirit.
His first introduction to the Gospel Music scene was when he recorded and released an album with the group BGG. That album received a positive response from audiences and from then on he has never looked back. In 2016 Bulelani released his album “Enkosi Jehova” which he won the Ingoma Award in the Best Traditional Gospel Album Category and the same album was nominated at the prestigious Crown Gospel Awards in the Best Traditional Gospel Album Category.
Bulelani describes ‘Enkosi Jehova’ as a true testament of himself where the album is a balance of traditional songs that are beautifully arranged and his own compositions.
When not setting the stage alight with his moving performances, Bulelani is a sought after MC and host of the much loved Gospel show on Umhlobo Wenene. He recently won in the Best Music Show Category at the Radio awards held in Johannesburg.
Koyo was also honoured by the Eastern Cape Department of Sport, Recreation, Arts & Culture M.E.C Dr Pemmy Majodina for his countless work in Music and representing the Eastern Cape in the National stages.
Bulelani will be accompanied by Siya Hlekani and Sicelo on Keys, Khayalethu Njikelana on Drums, on Bass with Nomaphelo Tobi, Zukiswa Hendele and Akhona Mahayiya providing the backing vocals. His songstress wife Siyasanga Koyo will be feature too.
Join us as Bulelani will bring the house down with an electric performance of much loved renditions of ‘Lizalise’ idinga Lakho’ as the first act to open up the third cycle of Jazz’Afro Sundays @ The Barn.
