Heels over Head is an all-female jazz band from the shores of Durban, South-Africa.  The love of jazz music weaved these girls together towards to end of 2008 to form this unique musical force.

Since then the girls are always occupied with composing, rehearsing and recording new music and with lots of performances around KwaZulu Natal and the country.

Their music is referred to as smooth jazz or easy-breezy pop jazz, they developed a notable and clever signature sound that consists of current African-influenced music and uniquely re-arranged standards.

The Heels over Head band is known for making the audience get on their feet and dance to their rhythmic bass lines and their cheerful melodies.

With their sparkling stage presence the ladies always look classy and stylish and you cannot miss the charm and charisma of their lead vocalists Thulile Zama and Nomkhosi Mazibuko.

They are joined by skilled drummer Rebekah Pillay and accomplished pianist Mandy Cobbing. Last but not least smoking hot guitarist Chillie Stent joins the band and the flaming fusion of musicians is complete.

No doubt that fans take joy in listening to some Heels over Head; the African jazz ambiance, skilled musicians and vocalists and well-founded rhythm works enchanting.
