Linda Sikhakhane at the Lincoln Center

30-year-old saxophonist Linda Sikhakhane stands as an outstanding voice among the rising generation of South African musicians—along with his collaborators Nduduzo Makhathini, Thandiswa Mazwai, and the late Sibongile Khumalo—who are changing the sound of contemporary jazz. Mr. Sikhakhane’s latest album, 2022’s Isambulo (“Revelation” in Zulu) finds the composer exploring the sonic histories of modern music filtered through the prism of transatlantic movement from across the African diaspora. A continuation of his earlier LP, An Open Dialogue, Isambulo presents a full and mature expression of Sikhakhane’s talent and growing chops as a bandleader. A regular performer on Lincoln Center‘s many stages, this appearance with his amazing quartet at the David Rubenstein Atrium, is his premiere headline show on the campus.
