Reflective, contemporary jazz from South Africa. The award-winning guitarist Vuma Levin is a vibrant, up-and-coming voice in the contemporary South African, and now international, jazz scene. His latest album, "The Past is Unpredictable: Only the Future is Certain", shows impressively how he uses his brilliant, provocative compositions to integrate and develop the traditional South African music of the Nguni-Sotho peoples and combines it with contemporary jazz. With great finesse, he weaves the orchestral sounds with the typical instrumentation of a jazz band with vibrating gusto. The result is a novel, self-confident and rich musical experience!
