Baobab ThreeLocation: Based in Cape Town
Baobab Three is a unique cosmopolitan Jazz trio, performing regularly at concerts and functions in and around Cape Town. Their repertoire includes Jazz, swing and Latin standards, folk songs, as well as some home grown South African favourites.
The unique combination of acoustic violin, guitar and voice, creates a refreshingly new sound, with a sensual jazzy feel pervading most of their repertoire. The band can add that classy background touch to your function, bring romance to your wedding, or spice up your event with swing and bossa nova rhythms.
