ZIM NGQAWANA (1959-2011)

Posted by Jazz for Justice

We mourn the loss of our inspiration and JfJ performer (2006, 2007), South African jazz maestro, Zim Ngqawana.  His music, his life, and his message of music as liberation were all encapsulated in the concept of Zimology.  There are plans to establish a Jazz Studies scholarship in his name at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
