Powerhouse vocalist, Natalie Rungan, who needs very little introduction to music lovers on the East Coast, will be rounding off the Sunday Beats Women’s Month line-up at Suncoast on Sunday, 27 August.
Rungan has shared music stages over the years with popular artists including PJ Powers, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Danny K, Ernie Smith, Abigail Kubekha, Loyiso Bala, the Kwa-Zulu Natal Philharmonic Orchestra and Toya Delazy.
Highlights of her career include being invited to sing at Nelson Mandela’s official memorial service in Soweto in 2013, performing for Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco and singing in Sydney, Australia.
The Durban-born singer and songwriter, whose favourite musical genre is jazz and gospel, has four albums under her belt and is currently working on her next one due to be released at the end of this year. Her music has been play listed on local radio stations and has also been used on the local SABC TV soapie “Isidingo”.
Apart from wowing audiences with her music, Rungan shares her knowledge of jazz and pays it forward as the director of the Chris Seabrooke Music Centre and Head of Music at Durban High School.
“Natalie Rungan is such a well-known jazz entertainer in Durban and South Africa and the perfect performer to round off Women’s Month celebrations on the Sunday Beats stage,” said Suncoast Marketing Manager, Louise Howell.
Rungan’s performance will start at 2pm and is free to the public.
