JAZZ OF FOUR CONTINENTS
Melanie Scholtz is a South African born, award winning jazz singer and composer. Playing piano since the age of 5, she went on to study classical singing at the Eoan Group before completing an Opera Diploma Cum Laude at the University of Cape Town in 2000. Melanie has thus far released five albums under her own name, as well as collaborating with many South African and international jazz artists. In 2012, she won all three prizes in the prestigious Jazz Revelations competition as part of the Jazz a Juan Festival held in Nice, France. In 2013, Melanie was invited to be part of the festival program, the same year she launched Freedom’s Child. Freedom’s Child is a collaborative project with iconic poet James Matthews marrying poetry and jazz. Also, in 2013, Melanie released her full-length solo offering, produced by Bokani Dyer, called Our Time. It has been said about Melanie Scholtz’s music that it is like a ‘best friend’ and listeners are always inspired by her musical honesty. This South African artist will continue to captivate listeners with her original and unique sound.
