Qadasi & Maqhinga

Qadasi & Maqhinga – Original Maskandi Folk Tickets – 10 EURO on the door Hailing from Empangeni in the heart of Zululand, Qadasi and Maqhinga are an acoustic duo on a quest to revive the powerful sounds of traditional Maskandi music. Both professional musicians in their own right and sharing the same vision, joining forces has resulted in 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. This interest grew exponentially over the years, and as a result, his love for traditional music was born. 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). In 2015, Qadasi was honoured to receive a KwaZulu Natal Young Achievers Award for ‘social cohesion through Maskandi’. 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. David first met Maqhinga in Durban in early 2010 when enquiring about a concertina tuner. After a ‘jam session’,…

David Keenan

On July 20th, we welcome David Keenan to Connolly’s of Leap for the first time in history, and hopefully not the last… His live shows have been described as visceral, spiritual and communal events where Keenan moves between a one man and his guitar monologue to fronting a band whose sound only acts as a carrier for the songs further solidifying their intent. Advocating expression through all forms, dressed in the clothes of an out of work revolutionary his debut album is to be David Keenan is an Irish songwriter, a young Artist who uses his lyrics to paint pictures with words on canvases of silence, curating a body of work which is steeped in the poetic tradition of old but delivered in such a way that is entirely his own.letloosed in 2018. “Not just another young lad with an acoustic guitar, Keenan is the sound of Tim Buckley and Brendan Behan arguing over a few jars, while Kavanagh deals Dylan a suspicious hand of cards, and Anthony Cronin and Jack Kerouac furiously try to scribble it all down.” Pat Carty Hotpress Magazine Ticket link announced soon

A residency in Waterford club Shakedown in 2006 allowed them to explore their style and flair for mixing music; they kept their house music mixing style while playing 80s funk, soul, disco and classic electronic music. Their own Get Down residency started in 2008 and allowed the duo to further refine their signature sound to the deep and soulful disco sound it is today.
