Watch and Listen: South African Jazz Artists Paul Hanmer and McCoy Mrubata

Hailing from South Africa, pianist Paul Hanmer and saxophonist McCoy Mrubata have performed, recorded and composed together for 30 years. Both alums of Hugh Masekela’s band, each artist has been influenced by both South African music and American jazz, which you can see in this live performance from the WRTI 90.1 Performance Studio hosted by J. Michael Harrison on WRTI's Facebook page.

The duo will have their first Philadelphia performance at the Arthur Ross Gallery at Penn to coincide with the exhibition of a fellow South African, multi-media artist William Kentridge.

Join us as we enjoy the unique music that these legendary artists have vowed to spread far and wide.
