The Little Giants, a group of young musicians, aged between 15 and 21 years, from the Townships of the Cape Flats, under musical directorship of Ezra Ngcukana and George Werner.

Their repertoire of African standards, jazz standards and fusion has wowed the crowds wherever they have played. The combination of traditional rhythms and a solid brass section has provided this group with a big sound that is not often found in community projects of this nature.
