With a slightly different format this year- brought about by the ills of Covid and practices governed by this gremlin – THE SHOW WILL GO ON!

The success of the Durban International Blues  Festival has slowly achieved its aim and 16 years on, audiences are starting to understand this genre and not confuse it as easily with Jazz as it has in the past! Blues lovers are also understanding that many of the beloved music they listen to, including good old Elvis Presley and other popular bands and artists- is rooted in a foundation of blues and it may even surprise you to hear that so are The Rolling Stones! From the early 1860’s when blues was birthed down in the Mississippi Delta to modern-day- this music style has transversed emotions and styles and is evident even in raucous dance music as unexpected as it could be!
