The Little Giants was established in 1999 by local jazz icons, Ezra Ngcukana and George Werner, at the request of organisers of the annual Jazzathon festival. They needed a township youth band to perform South African standards at their 2000 event. The performance was received with such great response from the audience that it was decided to continue with the project.

This group of 22 young musicians, aged between 15 and 25 years, from the townships of the Cape Flats and beyond, has developed into a tightly knit integrated unit, bonded by their youthful enthusiasm and shared cultural experiences. Their repertoire of African standards, jazz standards, fusion and original material has wowed the crowds wherever they have played
