Nduduzo Makhathini’s Inner Dimensions tours Southern Africa
Nduduzo Makhathini’s multi-award winning project, Inner Dimensions, will embark on its first Southern African tour this March.
Recorded at Musikerwohnhaus in Basel in 2016, during a residency facilitated by Pro Helvetia Johannesburg, the project brought together a noteworthy line-up of musicians to create this magical project.
“I always felt with the kind of work I do it is important that it finds a way of reaching out to more people as I believe that I am doing cultural work rather than entertaining. Inner Dimensions seeks ways to go deep within the inner realms of our souls and find those melodies that bring about harmony, healing and hope for all people” says Makhathini.

This 11-track album also features Fabien Iannone on double bass, Dominic Egli on drums and kalimba and the One Voice Vocal Ensemble (Lisette Spinnler, Julia Fahrer, Githe Christensen, Christa Unternährer, Ines Brodbeck, Anna Widauer, Maximillian Bischofberger and Yero Richard Nyberg) and was recorded by Hannes Kumke.
“The Switzerland visit was more than what I had expected, both in terms of research and my interaction with musicians. The residency at the Musikerwohnhaus was a perfect one it allowed me several informal conversations and interactions with musicians from different parts of the world.”
The SADC Tour kicks off with a performance at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival, followed by an evening at the The Orbit in Johannesburg. This is then followed by a three day residency and performance facilitated in partnership with Pegs Music Projects and Centro Cultural Franco-Moçambicano, and then finally a performance in Mauritius, in partnership with Mama Jaz.
