The name of one of Tshwane’s largest townships – Mamelodi – means “mother of melodies” and it regularly offers jazz festivals, like the annual Moretele Tribute Jazz concert which takes place annually in August/September. Atteridgeville has more than fifty jazz clubs and nine established jazz bands, giving Tshwane the name “Soul City”.
