Part of Hancher's Golden Anniversary Season

South African jazz vocalist (now based in Harlem) Vuyo Sotashe was the first male singer ever to place in the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute International Jazz Vocal competition—and that’s just one of the many honors he has collected in the early days of a promising career.

“[Sotashe] is definitely one to be on the lookout for…He has a crystal clear voice…[and] a wonderful way with melody.” —Jazziz
