Re-defining Soul Music with Relatable and Profound Music- The Jazz Catz Drop New Album “Hymn for Africa”

A soul-stirring musical experience, The Jazz Catz’s new album is an independently curated, authentic record that will be welcomed by fans of Jazz

Cape Town, Western province, South Africa — September 8th, 2022 – A skilled and creative jazz duo, The Jazz Catz, is making themselves known with a soul-stirring, expressive, and profound new record. Titled “Hymn for Africa,” the artists’ newest CD album marks their third record after previous releases, “Timeless” and “Con Fusion,” continuing a passionate musical journey.

Having dropped on August 23rd, 2022, “Hymn for Africa” includes a series of stunning musical compositions from artists Ryan Sackanary and Boris Guderjahn. Meanwhile, the album artwork has been created by Boris Guderjahn. With an intention to create music that listeners can fully understand, appreciate, and relate to, The Jazz Catz continue charming audiences with their musical brilliance.

Independently arranging, playing, and recording all instruments, as well as controlling the mixing and mastering of “Hymn for Africa,” The Jazz Catz continue to be a one-of-a-kind artistic phenomenon.

With a formidable debut and several spectacular hits under their belt, the talented group was nominated for The Mzantsi Jazz Awards 2021 in 2 categories: Best Contemporary Jazz Album and Best International Jazz Collaboration. In 2022, the duo was also nominated for Best Jazz Album, Best Contemporary Jazz Album, and Best International Jazz collaboration.

Having already received immense critical acclaim and popularity amongst listeners, The Jazz Catz’s success is a testament to their distinct sound, drawing listeners on a journey of pure joy and emotions. Their signature soundscape offers a fusion that is comparable to a mix of Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, and several other pop and classical elements.

“Our concept is to create music where the listener can relate to. Our music comes from the heart and soul, maybe a new definition of Soul music, which is easy to digest,” said the artists regarding their music.

Stream, buy, and download The Jazz Catz’s new music on their official music platforms! Follow the artists on social media for updates on new music and reach out through their email for interviews, reviews, and/or collaborations.
