Sanctum Sanctorium on the road this July

South African musicians, Tumi Mogorosi and Gabi Motuba, released their new album, Sanctum Sanctorium, in 2016 following a residency supported by Pro Helvetia Johannesburg. Recorded in Bern [Switzerland], the project is a fusion of African and European music styles and sees the South African duo touring with an esteemed gathering of musicians including pianist, Malcolm Braff [Switzerland], guitarist Keenan Ahrends [South Africa] and Sebastien Schuster [Germany].

Sanctum Sanctorium is a unique blend of African non-vocal singing, classical music and jazz. Their first performance will be in Mauritius, followed by The Orbit in Johannesburg, and then on to the Standard Bank Jazz Festival in Grahamstown.
