Tutu Puaone


So good you might forget to breathe.

The two-time Sama-winner for Best Vocal Jazz rises to the occasion again with her fourth release, Breathe.

Tutu Puaone captivates you from the first track. Her warm, soaring vocals boast a love for music. Friendship, forbidden and lost love and are the thread of Puoane’s story.

This theme of love resonates through her heartfelt tracks, showcasing her compositional abilities.

With each well-written track, standout piano chord structures by Ewout Perreux are well placed, brilliantly adding to her voice, thereby taking you to a musical high.

Influences of South African legends Bheki Mseleku and Abdullah Ibrahim come through strongly. It’s a must-have album for any jazz purist. – Tina George
