After the parting of popular Cape Town based gypsy jazz Manouche, lead vocalist Anneli Kamfer stepped into the world as a solo artist. With guitar virtuoso Philip Vermeulen by her side, Anneli found her voice and quickly grew to an elaborate 5-piece band that is propelled forward by the energy of her powerful vocal performances. Anneli is a music industry veteran who captivates audiences from the first notes of her music. Whether as a duo or bigger ensemble, Anneli brings an air of soulful sophistication to any event.
