JABULANI

Social network for South Africans and friends of South Africa living in Thailand

Jabulani Thailand

In 1992, a small group of South Africans founded Jabulani — a social organisation with a combination of old world charm and new world spirit. The purpose of Jabulani is to support and maintain a gateway for South Africans and friends of South Africa living in Thailand.

Because South Africa is such a “rainbow nation”, our group is open to all nationalities with a connection to or interest in South Africa and South Africans. It is with an open mind and heart that we can achieve true happiness.

Jabulani Membership is open to South Africans and friends of South Africa living in Thailand only. Membership fees are voluntary and are used to cover the administrative costs of running the organisation and its electronic platform. The Jabulani Committee members serve voluntarily and do not receive any remuneration whatsoever. We appreciate any financial support that allows us, in turn, to support you! Membership fee donations are THB 1,000 / USD 34 per person, per year.

Find out how to pay by reading this article in the forum. You can also email chief@jabulanithailand.org for more information.

Qadasi & Maqhinga at SOUTH AFRICA BALL 2015

Announcing an exciting live appearance at the SOUTH AFRICA BALL 2015 by Qadasi & Maqhinga!

Hailing from the heart of Zululand, South Africa, Qadasi and Maqhinga are an acoustic duo on a quest to revive the powerful sounds of traditional Zulu Maskandi music. By joining forces, they have created an international caliber of music which represents the heart and soul of South African roots music.

David Jenkins, also known as Qadasi, is an accomplished Maskandi guitarist, concertina and banjo player who developed a deep passion for Zulu culture and music at a young age.

After matriculating in 2010, Qadasi released his first studio album under record label, Sande Entertainment headed by Sibongiseni Shabalala of four-time Grammy Award winning group, Ladysmith Black Mambazo. His second album, released in 2014, has since been nominated for a SAMA (South African Music Award) and SATMA (South African Traditional Music Award).

Maqhinga Radebe began his career as a Maskandi musician in the mid 80’s and has received numerous awards for his amazing musical skills, which also include SAMA and SATMA Award nominations.

Well travelled, he has performed to audiences in several countries, including Zimbabwe, England and the USA and throughout Southern Africa, sharing stages with top artists such as Hugh Masekela, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Phuzekhemisi and Soul Brothers, to name a few.   

He is presently most well known for his key role as the guitarist in popular Maskandi group, Shabalala Rhythm.

The talented musicians joined forces after realizing the musical potential that was possible by combining their artistry.

Over the past two years, the two of them have travelled home and abroad with their fusion of traditional Maskandi and western folk music.

Aside from promoting Zulu culture, traditional music and social cohesion, the duo have been actively involved in rhino conservation, working alongside the Kingsley Holgate foundation and Project Rhino KZN as rhino ambassadors. As part of the ‘Rhino Art’ campaign, the teams visit rural schools bordering game reserves to inform and educate the youth through art and music about the rhino-poaching crisis we face.

The duo were also proud to be part of the inaugural World Youth Rhino Summit which took place in Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park, KwaZulu Natal in 2014.

There is much excitement in the promise of what lies ahead for this Maskandi duo which is continuing in the footsteps of this powerful genre’s icons.
