South African Music Award (SAMA) nominee Laurie Levine, and world class jazz guitarist, Thabang Noosi, come together to offer a unique acoustic backdrop to any special occasion or function. Armed with two guitars and a poignant vocal interpretation of timeless swing-jazz classics and African jazz standards, the Jozi jazz duo endears listeners to its sophisticated and rich sound.Their repertoire consists of carefully selected jazz standards that range from well-known atmospheric ballads such as ‘autumn leaves’ and ‘njilo njilo’ to foot-tapping up-tempo classics such as ‘cheek to cheek’, and ‘All of me’. Noosi’s skillful and versatile guitar playing has led to performances with the likes of Gloria Bosman, Louis Mhlanga and Moses Khumalo. Laurie performs regularly in and around South Africa as well as internationally. She has performed at the famous CBGB’s in New York and she opened for Rodriguez at the Forum in London, as well as for Joe Jackon at Montecasino’s Teatro.The duo were honoured to be invited to perform in Davos, Switzerland a few years ago, where they performed at the World Economic Forum. Other highlights include performances for Cricket South Africa, Graca Machel and Vodacom among others. They have played at a vast array of events, including private parties, weddings and corporate events.This sophisticated duo is ideal for easy-listening background music at any function.
