Lindelwa Dalamba graduated from Rhodes University and from the University of KwaZulu-Natal. Her research interests centre in South African jazz and jazz-influenced popular music styles, exile, memory, music historiography and the place of music in South African literature. She is currently reading for her PhD (Historical Musicology) at St. John’s College, Cambridge. Her dissertation focuses on South African Jazz in England during the apartheid years (1961-1973). Her research interests include exploring how South African jazz intersects with discourses on (pan-)African jazz (1960s), free jazz and/or improvised music (1970s) and the turn to so-called ‘world music’ in the 1980s.
