Fashion Meets Jazz

Topic of the Month: Standing out in crowded creative spaces.


Standing out in crowded spaces as a creative seems like a bit of a challenge today with the increase in digital marketing where anyone can use social media to actively sell a product without necessarily establishing themselves as a brand. How does a consumer now identify you as a strong and loyal brand, how do you create a compelling brand story and use PR & marketing to gain sustainable success, how do you distinguish yourself from the rest of the crowd.


The discussion will focus around:

- How to create a compelling brand story

- How to get meaningful benefit from the industry through the use of

PR & Marketing, without exhausting your audience but at the same

time staying true to your brand story.

- How to develop strong networks which can be leveraged for

business purposes. i.e relationships with media.

- How to test your product in the market without loosing your

intellectual property.

- How to refine your product to meet industry standards & satisfy the

needs of the consumer.

- How accessible is captial/funding for creatives & how should you

position yourself to attract investment.


R100 per ticket (students get a 20% discount, just bring your student card).

We advise booking in advance, please contact us on 011 339 6645 / 081 534 2867 or email us at info@theorbit.co.za to do so.

Phelo Bala Album Launch

PHELO BALA LAUNCHES MUCH ANTICIPATED SOLO ALBUM


Having being exposed to the music industry almost all his life, Phelo Bala has finally launched his solo project on the 24th of March 2017.


The album titled, Ndim’lo is authentically composed and inspired by Bala’s journey to self-discovery.


“My dream has always been to establish myself as a music industry executive and producer while I continue growing as a performer and composer. This album for me is a breakthrough and I can’t wait to share it with the rest of the world,” says Bala.


Like many great singers, he began singing in his church choir at an early age, and it was instantly clear that he’d inherited the unique musical gift from his beloved mother, and brothers Zwai and Loyiso, who Phelo would eventually form the globally acclaimed Bala Brothers with, when he was only 14 years old.


Following in his brother’s footsteps, Phelo joined the prestigious Drakensberg Boys Choir in KwaZulu Natal, where he rose to become deputy head boy and head of choir.


After completing his studies at Drakensberg Boys, Phelo’s professional career started with the release of the first Bala Brothers project in 2006.


The success of Bala Brothers saw Phelo performing on stages all over the world including England, Scotland, Japan, Australia and of course all over Southern Africa as both a soloist and as part of an ensemble.


In 2011 Phelo joined the highly acclaimed and multi award winning Joyous Celebration group which also launched his song writing career.


In late 2016 Phelo approached Dave Thompson ex Idols judge and MD of Boom.Studio with a view to working together again, having previously collaborated while Dave was head of A&R at Sony Music.


Dave was blown away by the quality of Phelo’s demo’s and recording commenced soon afterwards at The Digital Workshop, under the direction of producer Khaya Mthiyane.

Gesonde Seks bied aan Die Stripshow, R165-R185

Dié Stripshow is nie jou gewone stripshow nie, o nee, in hierdie teater produksie, gaan ons vir Timothy Kieswetter in ‘n hele nuwe lig sien. Dit is ‘n one-man-show met ‘n twist. Vir dié van julle wat vir Timothy goed ken gaan dit ‘n groot verrassing wees – daar gaan dele van hom besigtig word, wat nog nooit ontbloot is nie.


Maar nie te vrees nie, in hierdie stripshow word daar met woorde, en nié klere gestrip. Dit is ‘n ontbloting van die volstruis-mentaliteit van ons hedendaagse gemeenskap waarin ons lewe.


Die gehoor sal ‘n ontmaskering en ontnugtering van seksuele taboe beleef soos nog nooit tevore. Daar gaan uit die kas (of eerder dedur die deur) geklim word om die sluiers te lig van hierdie ongesproke onderwerp.


Daar is ook dan natuurlik die paar kinkels in die kabels, soos met enige verbode vrugte…askies, onderwerpe… Met ‘n paar “kinky pink” hoë hakskoene en “fishnet stockings” sal niemand twyfel dat hierdie ‘n sexy produksie is nie, en selfs ‘n paar “fluffy handcuffs” sal die gehoor geboei hou tot die einde.


Daar is ‘n Engelse spreekwoord wat sê “You need to grow a pair…”, en met Die Stripshow was dit nog nooit meer waar gewees nie. Sensitiewe onderwerpe gaan getakel word en ‘n goeie sin vir humor word vereis. Hierdie is nie jou gewone komedie show nie, elke persoon in die gehoor sal iets van die show af kan wegvat wat sy/haar sekslewe sal verryk.

Eerstewater (2016-2017)

Directed by: Hélène Smit, Adriaan De la Rey and Lodewyk Barkhuizen


Documentary

84 mins

The film considers the complex interplay between the individual psyche, the social fabric, and the arid land which sustains life in the Karoo. Local Prince Albert residents tell of divergent lives: of devotion to caregiving beyond the bounds of family; of the philosopher farmer’s relationship with the land; of losing parts of oneself; and of friendship whilst at the mercy of a system that is failing.

The Final Journey : Durban

Johnny Clegg embarks on The Final Journey World Tour

Nearly forty years after he began one of music’s most remarkable careers, Johnny Clegg is embarking on his Final World Tour, titled The Final Journey.

Johnny Clegg was diagnosed with cancer in 2015 and underwent chemotherapy treatment. Throughout the treatment he continued to tour locally and internationally undertaking a nine week tour of USA and CANADA in 2016. Johnny is currently finishing a new album and his autobiography. As he is in remission, Johnny has decided to use this opportunity to perform a final set of concerts in SA and overseas to thank his fans for their support over the 35 year long journey that spans his career.

Through his bands Juluka and Savuka, Clegg pioneered a uniquely South African hybrid music during a time of cultural and racial segregation. His music always offered a vision of how South Africans could find each other and the possibilities of a non-racial future. For this reason, the South African leg of the tour has tremendous import for him as it was South Africa and all South Africans that shaped him as an artist.

The iconic South African artist will start this live journey on July 1st with one show only at Grand Arena, GrandWest Casino and Entertainment World in #CapeTown. The tour will then move to the Teatro Monte Casino for two #Johannesburg shows on July 7th and July 8th, before #Durban audiences get the opportunity to see Clegg live, with a show at the Durban ICC Arena on July 29th.

Following these four South African dates, Clegg will begin the international leg of the tour, starting with shows at the Eventim Apollo in London on August 19th and a show at the Dubai Opera House on September 20th.

The tour will be built around Clegg’s unparalleled repertoire of songs which began with the release of Juluka’s Universal Men in 1979 and continued through the Savuka years and his more recent solo work.

Clegg’s many different hits and live favourites will be brought to life by the biggest production ever created for a Clegg live show, supported by his world-class live band. A highlight of the shows will be the different styles of dance that have been integral to Clegg’s life and work, ever since he learnt the fundamentals of Zulu music and traditional Zulu Inhlangwinini dancing with Charlie Mzila while still a teenager. Guest artists include the Soweto Gospel Choir.

As the tour unfolds, there will be some special surprises lined up for the audiences.

Johnny Clegg said "This will be my final set of public performances for my fans in SA and around the world. I am immensely excited to be able to bring to them an autobiographical, audio-visual and intimate account of my life through my music and The Dance. "

“Johnny Clegg is more than just one of this country’s finest musicians and entertainers. He is a national treasure who has brought together all South Africans and reminded us of what makes us great as a country.” says Cyril Ramaphosa.

"Johnny is taking time off to write his autobiography and spend time with his family and do the things he hasn't been able to do due to an incredible work schedule", said long time Johnny Clegg manager and promoter Roddy Quin. “It's been a privilege to have travelled such a long journey with Johnny and an honour to have worked and shared so many incredible experiences with him. It has truly been inspiring. And so we are excited to present The Final Journey with 4 incredible shows in SA in July and the tour, which will stretch across the world over the next few months. Johnny will still continue writing, recording and will partake in a few private engagements."

Johnny Clegg: The Final Journey World Tour represents the peak of a career that has combined near matchless music success with sustained - and significant - social, political and cultural impact.

Clegg’s recorded output as part of Juluka, Savuka and solo has earned him millions of record sales, countless awards and nominations (including a Grammy nomination) and multiple international releases, all eagerly consumed by a truly global audience. He was the forerunner of combining Western musical styles with African ones, sparking a revolution in South African music that can be still be heard in the work of artists today.

Most potently, Clegg’s ability to illuminate the connectedness of all human beings through his music meant he was a pioneer of social cohesion in South Africa. He also provided a portal for international audiences to gain a deeper understanding of the anti-apartheid movement and the journey towards, and ultimately into, freedom. For this, Clegg has received many different honours including an OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire), the South African Order of Ikhamanga and the French Chevalier des Arts et Lettres (Knight of Arts and Letters) , as well as several honorary doctorates.

Booking for the South African dates of Johnny Clegg’s Final Journey World Tour open on April 25th. Tickets for this unmissable event are expected to sell out fast as fans ensure they don’t miss this South African on his Final World Tour.

Additional South African and international dates are set to be added later in the year for what promises to be the most powerfully emotional live shows of a truly singular South African – a dancer, anthropologist, singer, songwriter, academic, and activist like no other.

Johnny Clegg: The Final Journey World Tour first phase dates:

1st July – Grand Arena Grand West, Cape Town

7th and 8th July – Montecasino, Johannesburg

29th July – Durban ICC Arena, Durban
19th August – Eventim Apollo, London

Chris Steyn - Live at Last, R150

Chris Steyn en Johan Erasmus is beide van Potchefstroom, waar hulle mekaar in 1997 ontmoet het, Chris as ‘n skolier en uitvoerende kunstenaar en Johan as musiekregiseur


Na vele kunstefeeste, kabarette, burlesque vertonings, ballette en teateropvoerings in Suid-Afrika sowel as in London, Engeland het Chris se pad weereens met Johan in die akkerstad gekruis.


Chris was reg vir ‘n solo vertoning met musiek wat hom na aan die hart gelê het en Johan was reg vir aftree na die rustigheid van sy huis in Mosselbaai.


Maar na een verruklike aand van goeie geselskap en Jazz – die genre wat beide se hartklop gesinkopeerd laat klop – besluit die duo om hul show saam te doen. Dus die titel: “LIVE @ LAST”


LIVE @ LAST” is die bymekaarkom van twee individue se jarelange liefde vir Jazz, blues en die avant garde. Dit oorskry die grense van tyd, milieu, geslag, ouderdom, portuur, ras en al die fieterjasies wat mense so aanhang. Verwag melodieë van George Gerswin, Cole Porter, Harry Connick Jr, Nina Simone, Jacques Brel, Irving Berlin en selfs die Cranberries. Dis ‘n terugblik na die: ”roaring 20’s and the Gatsby Jazz era” – (Herald) maar ook ‘n uitkyk na die hede en toekoms.


Kom en vergeet jou sorges vir aand saam met ons, herleef die goeie en word geïnspireer vir die toekoms.

Kaya FM & Bassline Live Present: Stogie T & The Rebirth Of Cool

Kaya FM 95.9, home of the Afropolitan, and Bassline Live are excited to be bringing one of the freshest musical collaborations to the Lyric Theatre on the 29th July in the form of Stogie T (Tumi from Tumi & The Volume) and jazz collective Rebirth Of Cool - for one night of old school jazz-infused hip-hop craftsmanship.

The show brings audiences a completely fresh interpretation of hip-hop & soul. The addition of schooled jazz maestros Rebirth Of Cool to one of South Africa’s most established and socially conscious rappers breaks new boundaries in all traditional musical sense and takes both genres to elevated heights.

Stogie T is the moniker used now by one of the countries finest rappers – Tumi (ex-Tumi & The Volume). With a career that spanned over a decade, his impact as a rapper, poet, social commentator and record label owner have garnered him the respect of his peers, both locally and abroad. The birth of Stogie T has resulted in a more outspoken, uninhibited and braver mouthpiece for his generation and through his personal journey he has come to the place where he feels he creatively belongs – making art that resonates with him at this current stage in his life.

Rebirth of Cool is a collective that, largely inspired by Miles Davis and the post-bebop jazz era, consists of highly trained and skilled musicians that celebrate their genre through the infusion of contemporary Hip-Hop sounds with the more avant-garde notes from yesteryear. Consisting of Thandi Ntuli (piano & keys), Benjamin Jafta (Bass), Siphelelo Mazibuko (Drums), DJ Kenzhero (Turntables) and Tha Muzik, the band has been touted as being one of the country’s finest groups of improv maestros around.

Taking these two world-class acts and combining them for a one-night collaboration is set to be one of the greatest musical moments ever staged in the Kaya FM & Bassline Live series. With special guests to be announced in the week, the show will consist of two 45-minute sets and is set to be one of the musical highlights of the year.

Also on board for this event is stylish urban outfitters Brentwood Clothing, who, as new affiliates of the venture, are standing behind the rich arts and culture scene in SA through this musical series. We are excited to grow this relationship with them.

South African guitar maestro Guy Buttery returns to The Bioscope for another unique and intimate performance. No stranger to the space, Guy has sold out all his previous performances here, so booking is essential. Special merchandise will also be on sale on the night.


For those that need any more convincing....


“Guy Buttery is something of a National treasure”, says South Africa’s leading newspaper The Mercury. As an internationally recognized musician, this multi-instrumentalist enjoys invitations to play sell-out performances all over the globe. The USA, UK, Australia, France, Brazil, and Italy have all welcomed him back year after year. However, to simply label Guy Buttery as one of South Africa’s musical phenoms would be an injustice. His international role has surpassed merely performing concerts to foreign audiences. It has evolved into one as an ambassador of South African music, inspiring people across the world with his homegrown style at the very heart of his talent and tenacity. Guy’s distinct unification of South African guitar music is the musical advocate for everything positive and beautiful about the place he calls home.


At the age of 18, Guy Buttery’s debut album was nominated for ‘Best Newcomer’ and ‘Best Instrumental’ at the South African Music Awards (SAMA’s) making him the youngest nominee in the history of the event. Guy then went on to collect two SAMA’s in 2010 and again in 2014. He has also received numerous other major National accolades including The Standard Bank Ovation Award for his live performances at the National Arts Festival, and has been honoured with more of these prestigious awards than any other artist. Guy was then invited to perform his works with the 52-piece KZN Philharmonic Orchestra, dubbed “Africa’s greatest ensemble” with his solo performance voted “Top Live Show” by The Cape Times and was selected by the public as one of South Africa’s Top Young Personalities by The Mail & Guardian.


Buttery has worked with an incredible myriad of artists including Dave Matthews, Jethro Tull, Vusi Mahlasela, multiple Grammy Award winner Will Ackerman, Salif Keita, Preston Reed, The Violent Femmes, Jon Gomm and countless others. The media has cited him “as one of the finest exponents of the acoustic guitar in the World.” Expect high dynamics, deep grooves, delicate African inflections and mind-bending guitar playing of an entirely new order.

Slashdogs - Bar Ber Blacksheep

The Slashdogs are celebrating their 15th year together in 2017. These experienced musicians first drew their inspiration from street punk, classic rock ‘n roll and rockabily. After all these years, their music is not rooted in any sub-genre or style, but rooted in the spirit of rock ‘n roll and is always being refined and adapting with the times.


They are traditionally a hardcore band but have recently started offering a much milder acoustic set containing blues'd down versions of their original tracks as well as a variety of classic covers.

STIMMEN 2017: Fuel Fandango // Bye Beneco (Support)

Zwischen spanischen und englischen Texten, zwischen stürmischem Rock, Einsprengseln von Latin-Folklore, Flamenco, Afrobeat und dancefloor-tauglichem Electropop traumwandlerisch wechselnd, bauen Nita und Ale Acosta fantasievolle Brücken über Kontinente hinweg. Fuel Fandangos Shows gleichen einem atemberaubenden globalen Rave.


Aus Johannesburg kommen die vier Musiker von Bye Beneco, deren wilde, fantasievolle Stilmixtur schon Dream-Pop, Gypsy Folk oder psychedelischer Blues genannt wurde. Je nach Song können sie ätherische, anarchische, düsterrockige oder tribale Stimmungen herauskehren, im Zentrum die geheimnisvolle und melancholische Präsenz von Sängerin Lenny-Dee Doucha.

Beerhouse Birthday Bash with Desmond and the Tutus
Beerhouse Fourways turns 3 🎉!!

Since 2014 we have curated a large library of beer which we are very excited to share with you!


On Saturday the 29th of July, join us for a night of jollification with Desmond and the Tutus.


Supporting Acts:

The hard rockin' Jerry And The Bandits and Jordan Pretorius.

DJ TK Tequila on the decks.

Entry Fee - R100
Tickets - via Quicket and at the door

(The first 24 people to buy tickets via Quicket will get a Beerhouse Beer Mug Cupcake and a bottle of Liefmans Yell'oh!)


More about Desmond and the Tutus:

Desmond & The Tutus have been scare-crowing across the world’s stages with their unique, some might call it niche, brand of kwela-indie-punk for just on ten years. But to call it niche would be entirely missing the point, the Tutus are more shape-shifters than niche, their sound slotting comfortably between Thandiswe Mazwai and Hugh Masekela, as it did at the Soweto Heritage Fest in 2013, or between surf rocker’s Beach Party and synth mavens Gateway Drugs during the Puma Happy Holiday in summer 13/14.

More about the bands:
The Dandies:

No one really knows where they’re from or how they came into existence, but The Dandies have been showing up at major festivals and blowing things out of proportion for the past two years. This winter, they have their course set for the Cape of Storms.


Kaihl Thomas Meades and Tinus Lottering make up this dangerous duo who’ve been living out of their car, performing more than 280 shows and covering 130 000 km since November 2014. You might know them from their radio-rotating songs ‘The Jack Rolling Dandy’ and ‘Do Evertything in Love’. However, they’ve added many more notches to their black leather belts, including performances with some of SA’s biggest rock acts, like The Black Cat Bones, Van Coke Kartel, aKING, Boargazm, Bittereinder and December Streets.


Their hard rock/party rock sound has landed them on the coveted stages of Oppikoppi, Grahamstown International Arts Festival, Smoking Dragon Festival, Wolmer Rock Festival and, most recently, STRAB Festival in Mozambique. Their crowds are usually left sweating and panting for more… and from 20 July 2017, it is Cape Town’s turn to sweat.


Indika Black

A four piece band formed in Cape Town, South Africa, that pays homage to sweet melodic grooves with a powerful dessert rock & roll aftertaste. Honest music written with passion will leave you wanting more. Rock & Roll everyday!


De Wallen:
Dirty. Sexy. De Wallen.

The band takes its name from the infamous Red Light district in Amsterdam. It's all about sex, drugs and Rock & Roll.


Their music is influenced by a huge variety of genres and they incorporate it all to form their signature sound. Fast paced, dirty and loud as hell!

Film Screening: Der Staat gegen Fritz Bauer

Germany, 1957. The Hessian Chief Public Prosecutor Fritz Bauer receives vital clues about the whereabouts of SS Lieutenant Colonel Adolf Eichmann, who was responsible for the preparation and organisation of mass deportations and murders of European Jews. Allegedly, Eichmann is hiding in Buenos Aires. Fritz Bauer, a Jew and Social Democrat, who had made it his objective since returning from Danish exile to bring perpetrators of the Nazi regime before the courts, tries to arrange the trial of Adolf Eichmann in West Germany. In his office, Bauer is virtually left on his own. Not only is he not supported by his colleagues, but they also continually scheme against his research. Increasingly, it becomes apparent that Fritz Bauer’s work is more than just a thorn in the side of influential circles.


Comedy / Drama, 2014/15. 90 min. English Subtitles.

Director: Lars Kraume

J.Bobs Live - a Game Show Double Bill

“POPArt Theatre and Kiri Pink Nob collaborate to bring the J.Bobs Live : A Game Show Double Bill to audiences monthly in Maboneng”


POPArt is thrilled to a thrilled to announce that Kiri Pink Knob’s “J.Bobs Live: a Game Show Double Bill” will now form part of the regular program at the POPArt Theatre!


The Game Show Double Bill concept has been refined during a long national tour to several spaces around the country and will continue to perform in spaces to entertain, educate and grow it’s audiences. POPArt hosted J.Bobs and the Kiri Pink Knob team for the first time in May this year, and it was unanimously decided that a long term collaboration is in order.


The Game Show Double Bill features two different styles of 15 min game show formats pitched at a same same but different audiences, separated by a short interval. Created and hosted by venerated writer, director and performer, J.Bobs Tshabalala the two game shows presented are “OFF THE RECORD” and “Location | Lekeyshini | Lokasie”. Together they have audiences banging down the door to attend, participate and let their inner competitor revel in a mash up of theatre, improv, sketch and game show all very cleverly compiled by the show’s writers to offer insight into uniquely South African realities.


“OFF THE RECORD” is a panel, game and quiz show hybrid that features two celebrity competitors representing their teams in the audience. A show that banters about with humour and controversy, much like a QI, task master J.Bobs is looking for the answers that ain’t obviaas. “Location | Lekeyshini | Lokasie” features team captains, points, drama, suspense and some amazing physical challenges from the special guests. It’s a sketch and skit show with a variety of vignettes that examine, celebrate, critique and reflect poignantly on the vast lived experiences of many in the South African Townships: a show that looks like, sounds like and operates like the lokishi. All in all, an evening of excellent entertainment.


“Here, the overt flamboyance of the township, meets the subdued vileness of suburbia, and the blend is as beautiful as it is intriguing. A romantic blend of palates that are very seldom paired emerges. The taste makes for quite the evening of riotous entertainment”, says creator and host J.Bobs Tshabalala. “One is the quintessential township jousting tournament, a battle of urban suave and kasi finesse (LLL). The other locates its crux in the holds of reserved suburbia being unleashed, a battle of quant decorum and sharp wits (OTR). Combined, these shows give to the audience a fuller experiential scope of the larger South African narrative”.


This is what makes the show a perfect fit at POPArt. “With a constant focus on. developing a broad audience base, as well using arts and culture as a vehicle for sharing South African experiences, this double bill is something that fits perfectly within the frame artistic direction, as well as appeals to our existing and desired audience”, says Hayleigh Evans of The POPArt Theatre. “ We believe that playing on a regular basis will grow the audience and maximize additional opportunities for the format. All in all, a perfect long term collaboration”

BRAND NEW OLD SKOOL

Njabuloseh lists D’Angelo, Rahsaan Patterson, Lucky Dube and Jabu Khanyile as some of his influences. He brings these worlds altogether with his beautiful voice to present a soulful, authentic, and distinctly South African performance.


The most prominent subject he explores in his music is love. Through song, Njabuloseh examines and documents the many layers of love, from the frivolous to the profound, while celebrating and articulating feelings of infatuation, longing, and heartbreak.


“Rich, buttery soul with layers of funk, jazz and a kwaito bounce delivered mostly ngesiZulu” is how Njabuloseh describes his music.

Prime Circle
02 Aug - (Wed) - 20:00
Price: R200

Since they first burst out of Witbank some 11 years ago, Prime Circle’s career has been an inspiration that has spawned hundreds of garage bands across South Africa, with starry-eyed young rockers hoping that one day, they might make it big the way Ross Learmonth, Dirk Bisschoff, Marco Gomes, Neil Breytenbach and Dale Schnettler did. Their 2003 debut, “Hello Crazy World”, rocketed to gold status in South Africa, with “Live This Life” (their 2005 follow-up following suit). Singles such as “Hello”, “Live This Life” and “My Inspiration” earned heavy rotation on South African radio. 2008 saw Prime Circle release “All or Nothing” which raked in the first two Prime Circle South African Music Award nominations of their career, for Record of the Year and Best Rock Album (English). To date, the first single “She Always Gets What She Wants” has received over 789 000 YouTube hits - the most-viewed South African rock song ever. “Jekyll & Hyde”, unleashed in 2010, was mixed in Los Angeles by Kevin Shirley. New York-based Sterling Sound mastering engineer George Marino laid the final touches. The first two singles from the album “Breathing” and “Turning in My Sleep” were each nominated for the SAMA for MTN Record of the Year in 2011. In March 2011, Prime Circle won the Best International Breakthrough Act at the MK Awards. The band released their fifth studio album, “Evidence” in September 2012. The first single “Time Kills Us All”, debuted on regional and national radio in South Africa to widespread acclaim. The 13-track album features the masterful recording wizardry of Theo Crous. In May 2014, Prime Circle released their 6th album, ‘Let The Night In’ before embarking on one of their biggest European and South African tours. Says Ross Learmonth, “Without the fans, we would be nothing. And I don’t ever want to do anything else. Creating music for a living is a privilege, and we never forget that.” Prime Circle are: Ross Learmonth (vocals and guitar); Marco Gomes (bass); Dale Schnettler (drums); Neil Breytenbach (keyboard) and Dirk Bisschoff (guitar). www.primecircleband.com twitter: @Prime_Circle Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/Prime.Circle

The Fred Factor - Presented by Aubrey Malden
02 Aug - (Wed) - 20:00
Price: R120

How can a 17 year old shy immigrant, fresh from Zanzibar arrive in London, a complete stranger and within 5 years, become one of the greatest vocalists and rock stars the world has ever known? It’s hard to believe, especially, when at first he couldn’t really sing or play the guitar. Aubrey Malden, who studied with the then Farrouk Bulsara takes you through a mind-blowing case-history and motivational talk about the incredible transformation of Farrouk Bulsara into Freddie Mercury, the exceptional brains and motivational leader of the band Queen. Using private video interviews with his friend Fred and glittering videos from live shows and interviews with Fred’s entourage, Aubrey shares with you eye-popping behind the scenes insights into how Fred took a band, who didn’t really want him, into the top slot in the world of rock. Share the feelings and learn the secrets as Fred, through obsessive self-motivation and exceptional attention to detail transformed his own shy and, in Fred’s own words, “boring” personality into Freddie Mercury leader of Queen. This is rare. It’s true. And it will rock you. PRESENTED BY AUBREY MALDEN, author, motivator and partner at The Forensic Marketing Company

BIOGRAPHY: The Black Cat Bones is a South African rock band formed in Silverton, Pretoria in 2007. The group consists of members Kobus de Kock jr (vocals) and Andre Kriel (guitars) with Chris vd Walt (bass), Gareth Bunge (Drums) and is considered to be one of the current top performing acts in South Africa.


Both their debut album ‘Silverton Swamp Songs’ (2009), and the critically acclaimed second helping ‘The Long Drive’ (2011) were heavily influenced by Kobus and Andre’s blues roots but, in 2013, the band released their third (SAMA nominated) studio album ‘Beatipliller’ which showcased their collective influences as a diverse 4-piece rock act. In the same year the band also won the MK Award for ‘Best Live Act’ and emerged from being underground sub-culture champions to a group that is adored nationwide by a constantly expanding, and ever-loyal following from all walks of life.

Standard Bank Young Artist for Theatre 2016, Jade Bowers presents BLACK an adaptation of CA Davids’ Blacks of Cape Town by Penelope Youngleson (winner of the Standard Bank Gold Ovation award for Sillage).


In the officious letter from the SA government, Zara learns that documents once sealed and implicating her father in an act which was committed against the anti-apartheid movement decades earlier, will soon be released to the public. The letter becomes the start of a journey into Zara’s past.


The narrative, in split chapter form, shifts between past and present – from New Jersey where Zara finds herself alone and displaced, to South Africa of the past and present. Her task is great and she grapples with constructing a history for herself and her family from between fragmented recollections and family lore.


Adapted from Blacks of Cape Town by CA Davids

ARTIST INFO

Caught In The White Summer Hotel

Caught In The White Summer Hotel is a one-man band project, combining a minimalistic songwriting approach with the power of electric guitars. The result can be described as rough, strange, kind of bluesy, noisy and somehow atmospheric and intense.


https://www.facebook.com/hotelson.music/
https://whitesummerhotel.bandcamp.com/

Entertainment for The Braindead

Julia Kotowski (Entertainment for The Braindead), based in Berlin, weaves her sonic universe from shy song lines, small instruments and field recordings, carefully wraps them in paper cut-outs and serves them with home-made ginger cookies. And coffee.

Viktor's Joy

Kaarel Malken (aka Viktor's Joy) spent most of his youth in the countryside of Estonia. Unnervingly blunt and straight forward lyrics give shape and form to the world he was brought up in.

Gil Hockman

Gil Hockman is a musician and songwriter from Johannesburg, South Africa. Performing with a guitar, synthesiser and loop-station Gil weaves a minimalist sound reminiscent of Beck, the Eels or Grandaddy. His songs move without falling into pathos while his skilled arrangements are a fascinating mix of folk, blues, indietronica.

Nomfusi Live

After a mere six years in the industry, Afro-soul star Nomfusi has become one of South Africa’s most sought-after export products. With over twenty international tours under her belt.


Nomfusi has given riveting performances across Europe and Canada at prestigious festivals such as WOMAD in England, performing with Angelique Kidjo at the Afrikadey Festival in Canada, and to an audience of more than 8000 at FMM Sines in Portugal and Lugano Jazz Festival. Recently she opened for super star Lionel Richie at Stimmen Festival in Loerrach. Nomfusi was chosen to portray the character of Miriam Makeba in the long-awaited film about the life of Nelson Mandela, "Long Walk To Freedom." The film, which was released in early 2014,is according to the Hollywood Reporter "be the largest South African production ever mounted".


The SAMA nominated singer, who is based in Johannesburg now was counted under the top ten rising stars on ETV Showbiz Report in South Africa. She has been featured in more than fifty publications, including Drum (who gave her 5 stars for her debut album), Rolling Stones Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Glamour and Destiny, and she has appeared on the cover of High Flyers, Mango Juice and The Sowetan newspaper. Nomfusi's life story has been captured widely in the media. Chris Blackwell, the founder of Island Records, who discovered Bob Marley, Angelique Kidjo and U2 said of Nomfusi after viewing a touching documentary of her life and music: "What a terrific young artist, her genuine concern for her community and beyond comes through SO strongly."


Not one to just stand behind a microphone and sing, the self-taught singer and songwriter has become well known for her untamed stage performances all over the world. In July 2010 on a coast-to-coast tour of Canada, a critic described her as “an absolute riot to watch and hear.” UK critic Damian Rafferty described her performance at WOMAD as "a refreshing blast of energy." The Swazi Observer, after witnessing her tour de force at the Bushfire Festival 2011, named her “The best artist in the overall line-up" and Sol Magazine in Portugal named her "The top act of the day" after performing to thousands at the Festival Musicas do Mondo. Radio BR2 called her “The top festival recommendation” of Bardentreffen 2014 Nomfusi's life story was described in Rolling Stone South Africa as "the sort of story Hollywood is bound to snap up." She was born in the township of KwaZhakele in the Eastern Cape. Her single mother, Kwazibani (“Who Knows?” in English) raised her while her father languished in jail for 21 years. A domestic worker by day, Kwazibani was a sangoma (African medicine woman) with a gift for music. Nomfusi would accompany her mother to the weekly sangoma rituals ("Intlombe") where Nomfusi would develop her musicality by dancing and singing for hours.


Tragically, in 1998, Nomfusi was suddenly orphaned at the age of twelve when her mother died of AIDS. Nomfusi’s aunt took them in, but she also died of the same disease three years later. With remarkable inner strength, Nomfusi turned her situation around to become one of South Africa's brightest stars. Never one to pity herself, but teaching kids and adults "that life is about choices," and that "one has to overcome the poverty of the mind first," she has done outreach work at schools for vulnerable children in Soweto, Swaziland and Malawi.


She's been invited three times to serve on a panel at an annual symposium at The Afrikadey Festival in Calgary, Canada, to discuss the role of women and the arts in Africa. She has recently become an ambassador for MES, an NPO based in Hillbrow that helps homeless individuals get back on their feet. Nomfusi, just as much a child of the soil as a woman of the world, cares deeply for her community, while not shying away from the world of glitz, glamour and success. As she sings in her anthem against poverty, "Nontsokolo,": "Remember your sister, your brother, your mother and your neighbour. Don't leave them behind. Go back, and make a difference."

Barry Hilton @The Rockwell Hotel

Fresh from sell out shows with rave reviews in Hong Kong, Canada and the UAE, South Africa's favorite cousin and comedian, Barry Hilton will be performing at The Rockwell Theatre in Cape Town on Friday, 4 August.



The multi-award winning comedian who has been wowing crowds for a whopping 35 years, is enjoying performing in Cape Town venues since he's settled in the Western Cape. "Smaller, intimate venues such as The Rockwell Dinner Theatre make for a very real experience and allow me to interact and have fun with the audience. I don't mock or ridicule audience members, we have fun together and I enjoy making them a part of the show," says Barry who regularly draws capacity audiences to Cape Town's GrandWest Arena. "I'll be sure to include a few fan favorites but it'll mostly be new material and I'll draw energy and stories from the audience."



With a fan base that spans continents, Barry's worked a multitude of venues across the globe, with his highlight being the main concert hall of the iconic Sydney Opera House last year. People of all ages and from every walk of life, enjoy his observational humor accompanied by hilarious facial expressions and physical impressions. There is no better way to start a weekend, than with laughter, so be sure to get your tickets for the show at The Rockwell Theatre on Friday, 4 August.

Monark
04 Aug - (Fri) - 20:00
Price: R150

Without a doubt one of the most exciting acts to break out from 2013, Monark are changing the face of pop music in South Africa. Mixing Eugene Coetzer’s uniquely characterful vocal delivery - polished with his distinctive falsetto - and Ewald Jansen van Rensberg’s unmatched, global production style, Monark craft songs rich in meaning and soul stirring hooks. Performing as a 4-piece band, Monark deliver something completely fresh and unique, and are setting trends sonically and stirring up tastes in the South African music landscape. Having dominated the South African airwaves with their first 2 singles, Smiling (5FM Top 3) and Build It Up (5FM Top 5, and #1 on Jacaranda FM, Highveld/KFM, Algoa FM, OFM), they also released their 3rd single, Something in the build up to the launch of their debut album NEGATIVES. The album, which was released worldwide on 14 July 2014, peaked at No. 1 on the iTunes Album Chart on the day of its release. MORE ABOUT MONARK Home to some of South Africa’s most renowned legendary bands, Potchefstroom delivered their latest offering to the South African music scene - Monark - in May 2013 when the four piece pop rock band emerged with their first single, Smiling. The band was formed when producer Ewald Jansen van Rensburg teamed up with friend and vocalist, Eugene Coetzer. For a couple of years they patiently developed and worked towards finding the specific sound they were after. Once they had discovered it, they gathered together the musicians that were needed to grow and perform the music, with Deon de Klerk joining the band on bass guitar and Graeme Wuth on drums. The band officially formed in August 2012, intent on making popular, yet tastefully engineered music with a cinematic feel. With Eugene’s unmistakably unique voice and soaring falsetto, Smiling immediately gained mainstream attention and popularity on major radio stations throughout South Africa. It peaked at No. 3 on 5FM Top 40 Chart and was a Top 20 hit on Highveld and KFM. The video also reached No. 1 on MK’s Top 10 Chart. December 2013 saw the release of Monark’s second single and music video, entitled Build It Up. The single soon followed in the footsteps of Smiling’s success and charted on radio nationwide. It reached the Top 5 on 5FM’s Top 40 Chart, No. 2 on East Coast Radio and became the band’s first No. 1 single, topping the Jacaranda FM Top 20 Chart, KFM and Highveld’s Kia Take 40 SA Chart as well as reaching No. 1 on Algoa FM. The band’s follow up songs – Something and You Make also did well through the end of 2014 into 2015, with a new single called Hush being released half way through last year to massive success across all radio stations, achieving Top 5 status in charts across the country and becoming a firm favorite at the live shows. Monark achieved industry recognition winning the MK 2014 Award for Best Newcomer, along with being chosen as one of the selections in iTunes’ exclusive ‘New Artist in 2014’ campaign. At the 2015 SAMA’s (South African Music Awards), the band were nominated for Best Pop Album, as well as Record of the Year, along with a nomination for Ewald Jansen van Rensburg for Best Producer for the NEGATIVES album. In 2016, the band released a deluxe edition of their debut album which includes their latest singles Hush and the songs currently charting on SA airwaves, Falling and Soldier, as well as a couple of other new tracks and remixes. Their energetic and polished live performances have been incredibly well received by their fans, with Monark performing on some of the top stages in the country – including Rocking The Daisies, Durban Day, Kirstenbosch Gardens, Parklife, 94.7 Joburg Day, KFM 94.5’s KDAY, Splashy Fen, KKNK, Durban Botanical Gardens, to name but a few, as well as live performances on top rated TV shows The Voice, Strictly Come Dancing, and at the 2016 South African Music Awards. Recent projects include a collaboration on the world-renowned Coke Studios TV show with Rap icon Riky Rick, and upcoming vocal star Lisa Good. The single that was created was called ‘Spare a Little Love’, and was released in September 2016 to great acclaim. The band debuted the first single of their new self-titled album at the end of March 2017, and will be releasing a brand new album end of May 2017 through their label Universal Music, and are hoping to spread their wings further afield to Europe before the end of the year.

Chris Chameleon - Jy en Ek en Ek en Jy, R150

Chris Chameleon het ses jaar laas ’n volkome, selfgeskrewe Afrikaanse album vrygestel. Met die bekendstelling van die langverwagte ‘Jy en Ek en Ek en Jy’ kan aanhangers uiteindelik asem uitblaas.


Die album is musikaal en liries sy mees avontuurlustige ooit, en in 2017 toer hy met hierdie nuwe album na alle uithoeke van Suid-Afrika.


Die klem val op hierdie nuwe baanbrekerswerk, waarin Chris opnuut weer die grense van klank, woord en sang in Afrikaans uitdaag en verskuif.


Maar gehore kan natuurlik ook uitsien na ’n keurspel van die treffers wat van Chris deur die jare ’n huishoudelike naam gemaak het.


Indien jy self so ’n Chris Chameleon lied het wat jy wil hoor, is daar goeie nuus vir jou: hy gee die gehoor altyd ’n geleentheid om hom te probeer vasvra met sy eie werk!

DEREK GRIPPER

In his quest to illuminate the beauty of African guitar music, South African guitarist, Derek Gripper, renders the great kora works of Malian masters Toumani Diabaté, Ballaké Sissoko, and others for classical guitar.


Transcribing the works originally written for the 21-string kora for a six-string classical guitar, Gripper magically transforms an ambitious technical feat into atmospheric works of “depthless beauty.


Experience a centuries-old ancient African musical heritage performed by a deeply sensitive and virtuosic performer.

Yoga at Soweto Theatre

Come with us to Soweto! We will be visiting the colourful Soweto Theatre in the vibrant Jabulani suburb for a yoga session with Steven Heyman, and afterwards go on a short tour of the Soweto Theatre facilities and visit the Soweto Art and Crafts Fair.


All 3 activities are included in the ticket price, as well as a participation fee for a group kids from a nearby community education centre who will receive a special invitation to participate in the session on the day.


The event is a collaboration between The 100ABC'ers Club and Yoga Works. It will be held at the Soweto Theatre, on a day that co-incides with the Soweto Art and Crafts Fair.


Yoga Works and The 100ABC’ers Club are both passionate about giving back to the community every chance they get and what better way than to offer a health related cultural experience in Soweto, a South African township with so much culture and history.


This event serves to raise funds for The 100ABC’ers Club but also to raise awareness for children in disadvantaged communities. We are inviting a selection of youngsters to come and join in on the healing properties of yoga and to enjoy a snack with the guests.

“If you want to know how a community is doing look to its youth for answers”

Story and Breath: Love and Laughter

Story and Breath is a monthly storytelling show hosted by Baeletsi Tsatsi. Baeletsi tells traditional African stories with a different theme every month.


Love and Laughter tells stories of how love is often the result of laughter. But not always a laugh that roars all the way from the bottom of the belly, sometimes a laugh of scorn. Baeletsi will be telling a story from Southern Africa about the consequences of a love that knows no limits, A Kenyan story that tells of a courageous love whose results is not laughter but a mark in history. A Congolese story telling of the necessity to make an effort when loving and a West African story that says where there is love there is bound to be laughter. Baeletsi will also be continuing the Mwindo Series that started with The Son during July’s Story and Breath. The stories will leave you with a fond love for the African continent and definitely laughing.

Tu Nokwe: Monologues In Song

Winner of the British World Magazine’s ‘Best Release from Africa” award, Tu Nokwe is truly a proud African.


As she returns to The Orbit after a long absence, she channels the “African Chanteuse” – a group of songstresses much like herself to celebrate women. Tu’s African Chanteuse can be thought of as a queen of happiness.


“Uplifting the soul with loving, healing sounds” is how Nokwe describes that will feature on the night.


Under the mentorship of guitar legend, Bheki Khoza, and led by Nokwe on vocals and guitar, the performance will also feature surprise guests as the band celebrates the “selfless feminine energy on the planet”.


Tu Nokwe – vocals & guitar
Lindi Ngonelo – keys
Siphiwe Shiburi – drums
Masosha Nhlengethwa – bass
Bheki Khoza - guitar

R140 per ticket (students come in at half price, just bring your student card). Come and have dinner and drinks while enjoying the sensational sounds.

Stoker, The Dandies and Light + Shade at Aandklas

Rock 'n roll is this season's flavour as three of the juiciest up-and-coming acts are heading to Stellenbosch!


Catch Stoker, The Dandies and Light & Shade at the most rock 'n roll venue in the Helderberg, Aandklas Stellenbosch on Saturday 5 August.


Tickets are R40 online (available from Wednesday at Quicket http://qkt.io/hHeqAN)

R60 at the door


More about the bands:

STOKER

With their brand of honest, dirty rock ‘n roll, Stoker has made their presence known with heavily distorted guitars, bass and pounding drums that drive the melodic intensity of their songs.


Lead vocals & guitar: Chris Bornman
Guitar & backing vocals: Redge OKennedy

Bass & backing vocals: Jurgen Borrie Bornman

Drums:Morgan O' Kennedy

Stoker, who recently released their self-titled debut album, is made up of two sets of brothers hailing from two small towns. Chris and Jurgen Borrie Bornman are from Rawsonville; and Morgan and Redge O' Kennedy are from Malmesbury.


Both of the older brothers imparted their passion for rock 'n roll onto their younger brothers. Chris and Borrie originally kicked off as a 3-piece with drummer Joe Theron releasing their first single 'Stuck in the Alcohol' together.I n 2013 the O' Kennedy brothers joined Stoker, adding to the dose of vim and vigor. The guys quickly established themselves on the local live scene and they kicked into high gear in 2014 with the release of their EP, Fox in a Hole.


THE DANDIES:

No one really knows where they’re from or how they even came into existence, but The Dandies have been showing up at major festivals and blowing things out of proportion for the past two years. This winter, they have their course set for the Cape of Storms.


Kaihl Thomas Meades and Tinus Lottering make up this dangerous duo who’ve been living out of their car, performing more than 280 shows and covering 130 000 km since November 2014. You might know them from their radio-rotating songs ‘The Jack Rolling Dandy’ and ‘Do Evertything in Love’. However, they’ve added many more notches to their black leather belts, including performances with some of SA’s biggest rock acts, like The Black Cat Bones, Van Coke Kartel, aKING, Boargazm, Bittereinder and December Streets.


Their hard rock/party rock sound has landed them on the coveted stages of Oppikoppi, Grahamstown International Arts Festival, Smoking Dragon Festival, Wolmer Rock Festival and, most recently, STRAB Festival in Mozambique. Their crowds are usually left sweating and panting for more… and from 20 July 2017, it is Cape Town’s turn to sweat.


LIGHT & SHADE

"A good performance, whether it is a speech or an orchestra ensemble, never lacks in light and shade."


Light & Shade are an acoustic blues duo act from Cape Town, consisting of Jeandré Swanepoel, front man of grunge rock group De Wallen, and Luke Smith on keyboard.


Swanepoel exchanged the distorted electric guitar for his trusty acoustic during his recent solo venture, but felt compelled to team up with the gifted Smith after hearing him perform the blues on his Korg keyboard at 03:00am in Aandklas, Stellenbosch.


Smith has a background in classical music, but knew his abilities on the ebony and ivory would extend far beyond this genre. He started playing the blues at the age of 17 and today he hypnotises audiences with his guitar-quality riffs on the keys.


Their act Light & Shade was born in early 2017 and since then they have landed residencies and prime-time gigs in and around Cape Town. In the meanwhile, they’re working on new songs and assembling promotional material to keep up with their already-successful shows.

The words, however, are focused firmly on the present. Their debut Album, Stoomradio, went gold and was accompanied by the acclaimed Harry Kalmer play, Die Vloek Van Die Strandjutwolf. This was followed by the SAMA nominated 2nd album, Nagloper, the soundtrack of the Rian Malan play of the same name and winner of the De Kat, Ramkat Award for best show at Innibos Festival.

RKO have been honored with a FAK - Prestige award for the excellent promotion of South African folk music on the 20th of April 2017. Played on acoustic equipment nearly as old as their motto, the bands’ sound features variously; violins, accordions, mandolins, banjos, washboards, guitars, pedal steel, dobro, trumpets, contrabass and gazoos

Winter Intensive

The 2-weeks Winter Intensive Program provides aspiring ballet students (ages 12+) a rare opportunity for growth by working directly with highly-qualified teachers who come from the prestigious Vaganova Ballet Academy, St.Petersburg, Russia.


The Russian Ballet Method will give dancers a stronger precision, technical clarity and artistry in their class work and performance. Students will immerse themselves in the education of dance and the Russian Method, which has trained the best ballet dancers in the world. They will learn how to work with their own bodies by accentuating their strengths, and by strengthening their weaknesses. This intensive program allows students to experience what it takes to become a professional dancer, and to help propel them towards their goals. An exciting opportunity to increase skill, knowledge, technique, and endurance.


Coaching in:
• Ballet Technique
• Classical Variations/Repertoire
• Pointe Class
• Character Technique
• Character Variations/Repertoire
• Ballet Conditioning/Stretching

2 groups: Intermediate Vocational and Advanced Vocational levels.

All classes in the afternoon, Monday-Friday, 3.00-8.00pm.


We strongly recommend that each student participate in the full 2-weeks program, since any serious corrections of most common mistakes dancers have or any significant improvements in ballet technique usually take considerable time.

Classes are limited to 20-25 students, to ensure extensive personal attention for every dancer. Applications will be accepted on a "first-come, first-served" basis.

We have the absolute pleasure of hosting the incredible Bye Beneco, on tour from South Africa; for a stripped down, chilled out session at the one and only 800A!


Joining this incredible South African outfit is Berlin local, Entertainment for the Braindead. A truly marvelous performer!


We're really looking forward to hosting this terrific combination!


Bye Beneco
==========

This eclectic dream-pop ensemble from Johannesburg has a magnetic energy that elevates their music. The sound stems from various styles, with evocative vocals at the essence of their songwriting. Forever changing and evolving, the band refers to their opus as somewhat of a musical ADD with Africa being their biggest influence. Bye Beneco have recently released their latest single Jungle Drums accompanied by a new music video. Their new EP, 'Ghetto Disko' is coming soon!


"The music creates a beautiful soundscape that is very easy to digest and leaves me inspired." - Gavin Lurssen, Grammy Award winning mastering engineer.

Entertainment for the Braindead
==========================

Entertainment for the Braindead is the solo project of Berlin based singer and multi-instrumentalist Julia Kotowski. Since 2007 she has been dedicating herself to the creation of very quiet sounds, weaving the noises of small instruments, field recordings and delicate vocal arrangements into introvert folk songs. The results have been published in various, often half conceptual releases on web platforms and as hand crafted cd editions. On stage she weaves soft synths into layered guitar loops and voice.

Gone Native: The Life & Times of Regina Brooks
SOWETO THEATRE PRESENTS

REGINA BROOKS – THE REBEL, LOVER AND EPITOME OF STRENGTH



Soweto Theatre proudly presents a brand new musical, GONE NATIVE – The Life and Times of Regina Brooks.


One of the most controversial figures of South African history is a woman who defied apartheid government laws and what was deemed a norm, Regina Brooks. A white woman who had several relationships with black men at a time where interracial relationships were deemed immoral. Like many preposterous laws of the apartheid regime, working against humanity, Regina was the the embodiment of both bravery and rebellion.


In 1955 she wanted to be re-classified as coloured so she could continue living with black people and keep her child Thandi, whom she had with one of the few black men in her life. While living with Sergeant Richard Khumalo, she got arrested and that is what sparked the appeal for reclassification.


Caught up in a grey area, rejected by both black and white people at a time when racial segregation was at its most jingoistic.


During the Soweto Uprisings of 1976, Regina moved to Eldorado Park, a then mostly coloured area. She recalls the area to have been as discriminatory of black people as the white areas she came from, especially because she housed and hid black students during those times.


Always lingering with no sense of belonging, even though all her life she always felt she was home with black people. Black people could not accept a white woman when they were oppressed by white people. White people also found it easy to reject her as she then betrayed their ideals.


A story of love, bravery and courage, Regina defied what was normal and chased her hearts’ desires. She found love and lost it, had beautiful children, lived happily and tasted melancholy all at once. A story not so unique to South Africa, Regina escaped an abusive relationship and became a loving, devoted mother to her children.


Soweto Theatre is proud to present this riveting tale of a living love-activist from August 8th to August 20th 2017.


Playing Regina Brooks is the talented Marietjie Bothma whose life is not so different from that of the protagonist.


With only Grade 7 education to her name, Marietjie Bothma went from being homeless to -being the speaker during ¬President Jacob Zuma’s ¬inauguration celebrations. However, it was her appearance on an pie advert speaking fluent Zulu that got tongues wagging. This multilingual woman, whose mother tongue is Afrikaans, can now speak 13 languages including several South African languages and German. She switches between Zulu, Xhosa and Sesotho with ease.


“She was the perfect Regina,” says Makhaola Ndebele, writer and director of the musical. “It was important for the female lead to be fully bilingual, and to be able to sing in Zulu.”


Musical direction will be by jazz legend and celebrated SA icon Dr Hugh Masekela.


GONE NATIVE: The Life and Times of Regina Brooks will run at Soweto Theatre (Red) from August 8th to August 20th 2017. Tickets are R120 and are available from www.sowetotheatre.com and by calling 0861 670 670.

Karaoke - With a Spin!

Karaoke is open for all individuals, whether competing or not. Normal karaoke will commence while competitors battle it out in between and over the course of the night. The layout of organised karaoke will be as such:

Arrangement may differ depending on number of competitors. Competitors will be judged on their performance and ability by a panel of random judges. Competitors will receive a starting 5 point for arriving dressed as a star of the vocal world. From there on, all performances will be rated out of 10 by each individual judge. While regular participants may book any slot open to them at any time – competitors names will be drawn from a hat to fill places. There will be 3 rounds for each competitor to show their stuff! Remember it’s all in fun! Everybody wins in this hilarious challenge! However there will be one outright winner that will receive a R200 Rumours Rock City voucher to redeem – as well as a super stars champagne.


Participants are welcome to join after the competition is already underway, however, they will not receive points for activities already missed, and will only be allowed to compete in the following round.

Here are the rules:

Step up to the stage and spin the wheel, perform depending on the designated spin:

- Gotta Git Down! – Perform the most entertaining dance for the judges to win their favour!

- Test Your Tenacity! – Perform a song of your choice without the words on the screen! But don’t forget the words! Trust me, we will know!

- Oh Boy…It’s a Steve Song! – Steve gets to choose your song for you this round! So sorry! A thumbs up from Steve will give you 5 extra points! A thumbs down will get you -5 points!

- Three’s a Crowd! – Get 2 of your homies up on stage to kill with your pop group! Or two other competitors will be drawn from the hat to help you perform a killer crowd performance! Must be a boy band – girl band – pop trio etc.

- Gotta Give Props! – Deliver a mesmerizing performance with the prop provided to you by the judges! Better use equals better score!

- It’s a RAP BATTLE! – Pick one of 10 provided popular rap songs of varying difficulty. More points for more difficulty! Less points for dropping the ball!

- Not Air Head, Air Guitar! – Pick one of 10 extended guitar solo songs and show off those flashy air guitar skills developed over years of practice! Performance of song counts only slightly less than performance of ROCK!

- Karaoke K-nowledge! – Before the competition starts, participants and competitors put songs suggestions into a hat – the contestant will have to perform that song to the best of their ability!



As always, there will be amazing drink specials for courage and stamina!


Most importantly - ITS FREE!

Fruit

* WINNER : Best Production at the Baxter Zabalaza Play Festival in 2015


"Fruit follows the fraught life of a young girl from early childhood through to her formative years. Her experiences are commonplace in a country ravished by violence, and without any sentimentality she exposes her life and the lives of others to the audience.


The 14-year-old Matlakala lives in a community in Soweto. Her world and life are bound by the Nascrec Road and the road leading to Potchefstroom. A slip of a girl dressed in a floral sun dress, she sits on the stage playing with her companion – a large white plastic doll similarly dressed in a floral dress. Seemingly oblivious to the audience as they take their seats she talks with and scolds her doll. Once the house lights are dimmed she begins to create a world which will steal your heart" - Tracey Saunders


‘With paucity of means and outstanding inventiveness, this one-hander about the quest for lost innocence represents a theatrical tour de force … packed with emotion, some humour, and much to provoke thought long after exiting the theatre.’ Beverly Brommert, Cape Argus


'Matshediso Mokoteli in Fruit. An enchanting raconteuse, a doll, some stones, and a compelling script… no wonder Paul Noko’s Fruit has emerged as winner of the 2015 Best of Zabalaza Theatre Festival...A bland-faced doll named Lucy is the confidante to whom she imparts the experiences she has undergone growing up in Diepkloof, with the audience a secondary recipient of her revelations. Much of her extended monologue’s charm is due to its unexpected blend of naivety and uncompromising realism' -Grace Gouvias


‘Powerful Fruit hits home hard … The whole piece is a wonder. It’s playful, heart-wrenching, elegiac, wry and funny in parts.’ – Robyn Cohen, Weekend Argus


’This play is awesome in all respects … technically proficient, well conceptualised, beautifully written and directed.’ – The Sowetan


‘With the writing and direction of Paul Noko, we were transported to an empty land, filled with broken people where nothing but hope survives … This piece of South African theatre is the kind of theatre I want my children to see. This is the kind of theatre of which we can be truly proud.’ – Thola Antamu, What’s On in Cape Town


'There are no bright lights or busy sets, but rest assured, this will be one of the most vivid and compelling productions you will see this year’ – Tracey Saunders, Cape Times

Barry Hilton

Every good comedian knows that timing is everything – and with Barry Hilton that goes way beyond the

punchline.

Not only is Barry one of the funniest comics around, he’s also one of the most professional, personable and

punctual.

He adds comic class to corporate events as the headline act or the MC, with a repartee that’s intelligent,

observational, impeccably timed and never crude, sexist or racist. Just enormously funny, with a delightful

knack of finding the ludicrous and the humorous in daily situations to make us laugh at life.

This old-school comedian is as streetwise as any youngster and remains at the top by continually writing fresh

material.

Barry is a South African globetrotter, and the first South African to headline four shows at the prestigious

Harrah's Improv at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. This year he will open the Hong Kong 2014 Comedy Festival,

building on a career that’s seen him fill 4,000-seat auditoriums with his solo shows and delight the notoriously

tough crowds at London’s Clapham Grand.

His global track record highlights Barry’s ability to cut through all boundaries and appeal to any nationality,

race or age. His gregarious personality makes him a people’s person, happy to engage with the audience

before and after his shows.

PumpForPeace Pretoria with Karen Zoid, The Parlotones and more

🚴🎸 WHEN MUSIC AND SPORT COME TOGETHER FOR CHARITY 🎸🚴


After a rocking launch in Lesotho, global sports & music upliftment initiative #pumpforpeace is hitting South Africa with a series of exciting outdoor benefit concerts, starting with Pretoria.


Headlined by iconic acts Karen Zoid and The Parlotones, 12 August at Wolwespruit MTB and Trail Park in Erasmuskloof will also feature Desmond & the Tutus, Tidal Waves, Black Cat Bones (Deboned) and The Sweet Resistance on the line-up.


In the spirit of the initiative - celebrating music as well as an active lifestyle - the Pretoria #pumpforpeace event will kick off with a MTB enduro race at 8am. World-renowned downhill rider Claudio Caluori will be racing on the day and riders can test their grit in the race against his time. Claudio is known for his infamous Red Bull Bike / GoPro course previews and is also the founder of #pumpforpeace.


The competitiveness and technical trail riding of Enduro will be put on the back seat for this charity race with the focus on having fun and introducing new riders to the sport. We will however have some special surprises for those who feel up to the task of making a gap jump or a rocky drop. The race will feature 3 to 5 timed sections, each being 1.5 to 2.5km in length. After completion of each timed section, the rider will cycle to the start of the next timed section. Riders are only timed on downhill sections and the atmosphere is relaxed with no rush - except when you gun it downhill! Strava will be used to time the race - this is a free timing system which means more funds can go to charity - yeah! We encourage all MTB riders, hardcore downhill riders and especially those looking to try something new to enter and experience the thrills of this exciting and growing discipline.


Early Bird tickets SOLD OUT. General access tickets are R180 and includes access to view the Enduro race as well as the concert. Kids under the age of 12 is R100, and kids under 4 get in for free. Participation in the enduro race is set at R300 per ticket, which will include access to the music concert.


For those looking for an exclusive experience, VIP tickets at R280 gives you access to a separate VIP bar area with shaded seating, convenient parking inside the venue perimeter and premium bathroom facilities. Enduro race participants can purchase all inclusive VIP tickets at R400.


All proceeds will support the revival of music and sport initiatives and charities in disadvantaged communities as well as the construction of new pump tracks, with further shows ready to roll out in Joburg, Cape Town, and Durban in 2017/2018.


Limited general parking tickets on Wolwespruit grounds are available at Webtickets. Paid parking will also be available at the Kloof Mediclinic on the day as well as secure on street parking in the area.

Pump tracks, for those who haven’t been completely hooked yet, are all the rage for cyclists of all ages. They’re the wildly undulating, looping, exhilarating tracks that have become the social hubs where age, race, gender, and social barriers dissolve, and talent blooms. Through #pumpforpeace Caluori has united riders and musicians to give back to developing communities around the world in a bid to create healthier people with healthier attitudes and to promote tolerance and peace.

Valiant Swart se eerste album in vyf jaar, ‘Nagrit’, het stil-stil verskyn. Nagrit’ bestaan uit elf splinternuwe komposisies. Valiant beskryf die nuwe liedjies as ‘kort-films’ met as onderliggende tema, die naglewe wat so ‘n onlosmaakbare deel van elke musikant se bestaan is; hetsy die rokerige kroegies en die ewige langpad-spaarkamers, as die middernagtelike gesprekke, karakters, tonele en observasies waaruit soveel nuwe skeppings ontstaan.


Maak seker jy bespreek betyds jou plek vir hierdie vertoning (slegs een aand), en kom geniet die musiek en die geselskap van een van ons heel beste musiek- en storiemakers.

Korreltjie Kantel, R130

Performers - Luna Paige, Nick Turner, Jamie Jupiter


Vir die verhoog het ons die liefdesverhaal tussen Ingrid en André P. Brink as wegspringpunt gebruik. Ná die publikasie van Vlam in die sneeu (die liefdesbriewe wat die skrywer en digteres tussen 1963 en 1965 aan mekaar geskryf het) was dit ’n goeie aanslag om mense ’n nuwe blik op Ingrid se gedigte te gee. Ek het twee akteurs genader om stemwerk vir die vertoning te doen. Christine Truter en Wessel Pretorius het aandoenlike vertolkings as Ingrid en André gelewer.


Ná suksesvolle optredes by veral die Woordfees het ons besluit om die musiek op te neem. Hatchetman se program het nie ’n opname of nasionale toer toegelaat nie, en ek moes opnuut soek na ’n nuwe kreatiewe deelnemer. En daar beland Jamie Jupiter op die projek. En wat ’n aanwins! RSG het besluit om die projek te ondersteun en is verantwoordelik vir die CD wat vandag op die rakke is. Sonder hulle sou ons nie die CD kon maak nie. Ek en Nick en Jamie het opnuut saamgesit, gewerk, geskryf en met die finale produk vorendag gekom. Ons het in Desember 2016 die CD opgeneem by Sunset Studios op Stellenbosch. Die proses was organies, uitmergelend, snaaks, prettig, emosioneel – alles wat dit moes wees om ’n goeie eindproduk te lewer. Jürgen von Wechmar (die klankingenieur) het ook baie insette gelewer tot die kreatiewe proses, waarvoor ons baie dankbaar is.


Al die liedjies wat in die show is, is op die CD. Die meeste is toonsettings van gedigte uit Ingrid se bundels. In sommige gevalle het ons ons eie lirieke geïnkorporeer. “Juwele van jou oë” is my vertelling van die ooreenkomste tussen Ingrid en André se verhouding en die gebeure wat afspeel in sy boek Die ambassadeur. Nick se “Kanniedood” is in reaksie op die hoofstuk oor Ingrid in sy outobiografie, Vurk in die pad. Jamie het haar gedig “Fragment” sy eie gemaak en sy eie idees en lirieke daarby geïnkorporeer. André se vrou, Karina, het my baie gehelp en verwys na sy gedigte wat gepubliseer is in die tyd dat hy en Ingrid in ’n verhouding was. Sy het die impak van hul verhouding op sy menswees en literêre werk met my bespreek. Ek is innig dankbaar vir die tyd en passie vir haar man en sy verlede wat sy met my gedeel het. Sy is ’n spesiale vrou.

Na ‘n suksesvolle debuut op RSG Kunstefees en optredes by US Woordfees en KKNK (2016), word die musiekteaterproduksie Korreltjie Kantel, verder verwerk vir die verhoog. RSG en Iluminar Productions span kragte saam vir die opname en bekendstelling van die nuut-verwerkte Korreltjie Kantel in 2017.


3 Onverwagse liedjieskrywers en sangers kom bymekaar om Ingrid Jonker se liefdesgedigte te verwerk en opnuut weer te gee. Hierdie gedigte word verweef met dramatiese en musikale vertolkings van Andre P Brink en Ingrid Jonker se liefdesbriewe aan mekaar in die 60iger jare. ‘n Hartroerende en intieme weergee van verlange, verbodenheid, vernietiging en die vreeslose verrukking van die liefde.


Vlam in die sneeu: Die liefdesbriewe van André P Brink & Ingrid Jonker


Korreltjie Kantel word ondersteun deur ClemenGold.

Karaoke - With a Spin!

Karaoke is open for all individuals, whether competing or not. Normal karaoke will commence while competitors battle it out in between and over the course of the night. The layout of organised karaoke will be as such:

Arrangement may differ depending on number of competitors. Competitors will be judged on their performance and ability by a panel of random judges. Competitors will receive a starting 5 point for arriving dressed as a star of the vocal world. From there on, all performances will be rated out of 10 by each individual judge. While regular participants may book any slot open to them at any time – competitors names will be drawn from a hat to fill places. There will be 3 rounds for each competitor to show their stuff! Remember it’s all in fun! Everybody wins in this hilarious challenge! However there will be one outright winner that will receive a R200 Rumours Rock City voucher to redeem – as well as a super stars champagne.


Participants are welcome to join after the competition is already underway, however, they will not receive points for activities already missed, and will only be allowed to compete in the following round.

Here are the rules:

Step up to the stage and spin the wheel, perform depending on the designated spin:

- Gotta Git Down! – Perform the most entertaining dance for the judges to win their favour!

- Test Your Tenacity! – Perform a song of your choice without the words on the screen! But don’t forget the words! Trust me, we will know!

- Oh Boy…It’s a Steve Song! – Steve gets to choose your song for you this round! So sorry! A thumbs up from Steve will give you 5 extra points! A thumbs down will get you -5 points!

- Three’s a Crowd! – Get 2 of your homies up on stage to kill with your pop group! Or two other competitors will be drawn from the hat to help you perform a killer crowd performance! Must be a boy band – girl band – pop trio etc.

- Gotta Give Props! – Deliver a mesmerizing performance with the prop provided to you by the judges! Better use equals better score!

- It’s a RAP BATTLE! – Pick one of 10 provided popular rap songs of varying difficulty. More points for more difficulty! Less points for dropping the ball!

- Not Air Head, Air Guitar! – Pick one of 10 extended guitar solo songs and show off those flashy air guitar skills developed over years of practice! Performance of song counts only slightly less than performance of ROCK!

- Karaoke K-nowledge! – Before the competition starts, participants and competitors put songs suggestions into a hat – the contestant will have to perform that song to the best of their ability!



As always, there will be amazing drink specials for courage and stamina!


Most importantly - ITS FREE!

CT Launch of A to Z of Amazing South African Women

The Book Lounge and Modjaji Books are deilghted to invite you to the launch of the "A to Z of Amazing South African Women" text by Ambre Nicolson and illustrations by Jaxon Hsu


MORE ABOUT THE BOOK:

This is no ordinary A to Z. With each letter of the alphabet this book honours the contribution of women to South Africa's past, present and future. Using short, easy to read biographies and illustrations that are as bright and bold as the women they depict, this book shares the life stories of 26 South African rebels, artists, troublemakers, athletes, dancing queens and freedom fighters. From Fatima Meer to Caster Semenya, Cissie Gool to Thuli Madonsela, this is a book about women who ask too many questions, who defy injustice, who refuse to “know their place”. It is a celebration of the courage, determination and compassion of the activists, scientists and storytellers who have gone before us – as well as recognising the everyday heroism of ordinary South African women doing extraordinary things.


AMBRE NICOLSON

Ambre Nicolson is a writer and editor who lives in Cape Town. Before and after obtaining degrees in English and journalism at Rhodes University, she was a cleaner in London, a wall painter in Barcelona, a language student in Shanghai, a book researcher in New York, a teacher in Taipei and a magazine editor in Cape Town. She edits the storytelling publication, Molo.


JAXON HSU

Jaxon Hsu grew up in Johannesburg before moving to Taipei to obtain a degree in advertising. He completed his MA in New York, where he worked as a sneaker designer and filmmaker. He is now a Cape Town-based designer, illustrator and photographer.

Koos Kombuis , R120

Koos Kombuis (gebore André le Roux du Toit, November 5, 1954) is ‘n Suid-Afrikaanse musikant en skrywer. Hy verwerf bekendheid as deel van ‘n groep anti-establishment (sogenaamd alternatiewe) Afrikaanse musikante wat in die laat 1980’s die kampustoer “Voëlvry” aanpak. Ander musikante wat deel uitgemaak het van hierdie musiekbeweging was Johannes Kerkorrel en James Phillips. Die Voëlvry-groep het sterk standpunt ingeneem teen Apartheid en die regerende Nasionale Party.


Koos Kombuis het sedertdien die status van legende in Afrikaanse kultuurkringe bereik. Hy is ook bekend as rubriekskrywer vir verskeie Suid-Afrikaanse publikasies (o.a. Rapport). Uit sy pen het twee outobiografiese boeke, romans, digbundels en rubriekbundels verskyn (Sien literatuurlys hier onder).


Koos noem Bob Dylan, Neil Young, George Harrison en John Lennon as musikale invloede. Sy musiekstyl is rou en eerlik. Hy tree meestal solo op en begelei homself op kitaar, maar word soms bygestaan deur wêreldbekende musikante soos Schalk Joubert, Melissa van der Spuy, Albert Frost, Nicole Holm en Kevin Gibson.


Koos Kombuis word beskou as een van die beste liriekskrywers in Suid-Afrika. Een van sy bekendste liedjies, “Lisa se Klavier” is opgeneem deur Laurika Rauch en The Parlotones en ook vertaal in Frans, Portugees en Engels. Die Belgiese sanger, Stef Bos, vertolk die Koos Kombuis-liedjie “Onder in my Whiskeyglas” en die twee is mede-skrywers van die liedjies “Het Avondland” en “Die Duiwel en God”.

Ziza Muftic with Paul Hanmer, Romy Brauteseth, and Peter Auret

ZIZA MUFTIC WITH PAUL HANMER, ROMY BRAUTESETH, AND PETER AURET


How does a sound define the place? How do you express emotion, without being overbearing?


Croatian-born, Ziza, has been in music since age seven as a classical violinist. One of the turning points in her musical development was when a primary school teacher asked the class to draw the music she played.


As a jazz artist, Ziza hopes to discover how best to interpret someone else’s composition and give it the right frame for the context - the right feel.


Ziza’s strength lie in writing beautiful, single-line melodies. In her own compositions, she hopes to find the best harmony and orchestration for her melodies.


It was the great Leonard Bernstein who called a melody a noun, a harmony an adjective, and the rhythm a verb.


Helping Ziza create memorable moments on stage are sound painters in their own right; Paul Hanmer, Romy Brauteseth, and Peter Auret.


Please join us for a special concert, in honour of women’s month.


Ziza Muftic - vocals
Paul Hanmer - piano
Romy Brauteseth - bass
Peter Auret - drums

R130 per ticket (students come in at half price, just bring your student card). Come and have dinner and drinks while enjoying the sensational sounds.

We advise booking in advance, please contact us on 011 339 6645 / 081 534 2867 or email us at info@theorbit.co.za to do so.

Itumeleng Matabane Live

At a time when there is a resurgence and general embracing of all things African, Afro-Soul songstress, Itumeleng Matabane flies the Pedi flag sky high with her home grown musical offering. Her songs, which she predominantly writes and performs in her mother tongue SePedi, not only deal with subject matter of a cultural nature, but are a resounding celebration of her African identity.


Born and raised at Ga-Mphahlele, Seleteng in the Limpopo province, Itumeleng completed part of her Primary Schooling at Little Bedford View in Lebowakgomo, a school founded by her grandfather, PP Mphahlele. Musically inclined, it was Mphahlele who helped nurture Itumeleng’s vocal aptitude from a very young age. Soon, she found herself immersed in the world of music, participating in choirs throughout her High School and Tertiary careers. Matabane reveals that her travels to Chicago in High School, and Argentina at Tertiary as part of choral intercultural exchange programmes; “helped formulate my musical ideologies and musicality.”


Her musical ideology; being a unique blend of a love of her own culture while simultaneously embracing varying life experiences and people from all walks of life; led her to pursue a solo career in the South African music scene. Her efforts to penetrate the industry yielded fruit in 2015, when she was spotted by one-time songwriter for Joyous Celebration, Veli Maphanga whilst singing at church. Maphanga introduced Matabane to legendary producer, Peter Mokoena of KWEKS Music, and her first single titled ‘Hlaba Thedi’ was born.


Mokoena – who is known to have discovered and worked with artists such as Brenda Fassie, Vuyo Mokoena, Rebecca Malope, Winnie Khumalo, to mention but a few – produced the song which Matabane wrote herself. The song urges men to be righteous in their deeds towards woman; that they should respect; honour and do right by them. A sincerely traditional take on gender relations regardless of which culture you identify with.

It's at a bowl's club but your parents won't be there...and just like a pro bowler that's under the age of 50, we're turning things on it's head, again.

The Final Journey : London

Johnny Clegg embarks on The Final Journey World Tour

Nearly forty years after he began one of music’s most remarkable careers, Johnny Clegg is embarking on his Final World Tour, titled The Final Journey.

Johnny Clegg was diagnosed with cancer in 2015 and underwent chemotherapy treatment. Throughout the treatment he continued to tour locally and internationally undertaking a nine week tour of USA and CANADA in 2016. Johnny is currently finishing a new album and his autobiography. As he is in remission, Johnny has decided to use this opportunity to perform a final set of concerts in SA and overseas to thank his fans for their support over the 35 year long journey that spans his career.

Through his bands Juluka and Savuka, Clegg pioneered a uniquely South African hybrid music during a time of cultural and racial segregation. His music always offered a vision of how South Africans could find each other and the possibilities of a non-racial future. For this reason, the South African leg of the tour has tremendous import for him as it was South Africa and all South Africans that shaped him as an artist.

The iconic South African artist will start this live journey on July 1st with one show only at Grand Arena, GrandWest Casino and Entertainment World in #CapeTown. The tour will then move to the Teatro Monte Casino for two #Johannesburg shows on July 7th and July 8th, before #Durban audiences get the opportunity to see Clegg live, with a show at the Durban ICC Arena on July 29th.

Following these four South African dates, Clegg will begin the international leg of the tour, starting with shows at the Eventim Apollo in London on August 19th and a show at the Dubai Opera House on September 20th.

The tour will be built around Clegg’s unparalleled repertoire of songs which began with the release of Juluka’s Universal Men in 1979 and continued through the Savuka years and his more recent solo work.

Clegg’s many different hits and live favourites will be brought to life by the biggest production ever created for a Clegg live show, supported by his world-class live band. A highlight of the shows will be the different styles of dance that have been integral to Clegg’s life and work, ever since he learnt the fundamentals of Zulu music and traditional Zulu Inhlangwinini dancing with Charlie Mzila while still a teenager. Guest artists include the Soweto Gospel Choir.

As the tour unfolds, there will be some special surprises lined up for the audiences.

Johnny Clegg said "This will be my final set of public performances for my fans in SA and around the world. I am immensely excited to be able to bring to them an autobiographical, audio-visual and intimate account of my life through my music and The Dance. "

“Johnny Clegg is more than just one of this country’s finest musicians and entertainers. He is a national treasure who has brought together all South Africans and reminded us of what makes us great as a country.” says Cyril Ramaphosa.

"Johnny is taking time off to write his autobiography and spend time with his family and do the things he hasn't been able to do due to an incredible work schedule", said long time Johnny Clegg manager and promoter Roddy Quin. “It's been a privilege to have travelled such a long journey with Johnny and an honour to have worked and shared so many incredible experiences with him. It has truly been inspiring. And so we are excited to present The Final Journey with 4 incredible shows in SA in July and the tour, which will stretch across the world over the next few months. Johnny will still continue writing, recording and will partake in a few private engagements."

Johnny Clegg: The Final Journey World Tour represents the peak of a career that has combined near matchless music success with sustained - and significant - social, political and cultural impact.

Clegg’s recorded output as part of Juluka, Savuka and solo has earned him millions of record sales, countless awards and nominations (including a Grammy nomination) and multiple international releases, all eagerly consumed by a truly global audience. He was the forerunner of combining Western musical styles with African ones, sparking a revolution in South African music that can be still be heard in the work of artists today.

Most potently, Clegg’s ability to illuminate the connectedness of all human beings through his music meant he was a pioneer of social cohesion in South Africa. He also provided a portal for international audiences to gain a deeper understanding of the anti-apartheid movement and the journey towards, and ultimately into, freedom. For this, Clegg has received many different honours including an OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire), the South African Order of Ikhamanga and the French Chevalier des Arts et Lettres (Knight of Arts and Letters) , as well as several honorary doctorates.

Booking for the South African dates of Johnny Clegg’s Final Journey World Tour open on April 25th. Tickets for this unmissable event are expected to sell out fast as fans ensure they don’t miss this South African on his Final World Tour.

Additional South African and international dates are set to be added later in the year for what promises to be the most powerfully emotional live shows of a truly singular South African – a dancer, anthropologist, singer, songwriter, academic, and activist like no other.

Johnny Clegg: The Final Journey World Tour first phase dates:

1st July – Grand Arena Grand West, Cape Town

7th and 8th July – Montecasino, Johannesburg

29th July – Durban ICC Arena, Durban
19th August – Eventim Apollo, London

Only £2.50 entry. Food served until 10pm. Doors open 7:30pm.


Hosted by Signature Brew

Tailor

With two 2013 SAMA nominations behind her debut album “The Dark Horse”, a 2015 SAMA nomination behind her second album “Light”, and a 2017 SAMA nomination for her latest album "TrustPt.1", Tailor’s journey has been nothing but a feat of celebratory confidence.


In February 2016, Tailor embarked on a trip to Austin, Texas to record her third album TRUST PT1. Zak Loy, also known as, Ed Kowalczyk’s lead guitarist and member of Ed's band LIVE, was granted the opportunity to produce Tailor’s album at Orb Recording Studios in Texas.


Tailor is a force to be reckoned with, her diverse voice will take you through an emotional yet happy journey which will leave you inspired. Tailor is famous for her energy as a live act.


Jack + Ella

Jack + Ella are a country duo based in London, UK. Their music is rooted in country, with infectious and catchy pop-rock hooks.


Jack + Ella met when they were 16 at an open mic competition that their dads had taken them to. Years later, in May 2016, they re-connected after recognising their musical and personality similarities via the magical world of social media! They realised very quickly that their writing and playing styles complimented each other too well for them to keep pursuing their music as solo artists - and so their official partnership was formed!


The duo self-released their debut single Hometown on the 3rd April, 2017 and it entered the iTunes UK country charts at #3. They've been played on a large number of radio stations across the UK, including Chris Country and London FM. Their debut EP 'Ready' was released on the 17th April, receiving praising reviews across the board.


Joel Bailey

Joel Bailey is a singer / songwriter, knocking out soulful, blues inspired shuffles. Paloma Faith selected his song 'Fake Tattoo' as the winner of the 2010 Shure Creative Award for songwriting and he has since had the opportunity to perform at the 2012 Olympic Festival, Knebworth, The Emerging Proms at The Roundhouse, Rough Trade East, and The Natural History Museum. Joel has been featured on BBC London TV and radio, Amazing Tunes and in the Evening Standard and has been hailed by Simon Cowell as 'quite good.'


The Seagulls

Modern pop troupe from Leeds possessing a sixties sound and British rock 'n' roll vibe. With their interesting vocal patterns, instantly recognisable guitar sound and lyrics touching on the weird, dark and altogether unusual, you won't be able to get these out of your head. Labelled by fans as modern day 'tropical rock', you really have to see these guys live to appreciate what they're all about.


'The venue is completely packed by the time The Seagulls get on stage and for good reason. These guys were really on point from the very first note, and from there, the set flowed perfectly. They know how to write good hooks, as well as generally coming up with interesting vocal patterns. When you listen to these guys you just know they're good songwriters' - Gerard Leachman, Leeds Music Scene.


“This is an act that looks like they have found their sound - reminded me of something you would like to hear being played when you're at a summer festival...”

Karaoke - With a Spin!

Karaoke is open for all individuals, whether competing or not. Normal karaoke will commence while competitors battle it out in between and over the course of the night. The layout of organised karaoke will be as such:

Arrangement may differ depending on number of competitors. Competitors will be judged on their performance and ability by a panel of random judges. Competitors will receive a starting 5 point for arriving dressed as a star of the vocal world. From there on, all performances will be rated out of 10 by each individual judge. While regular participants may book any slot open to them at any time – competitors names will be drawn from a hat to fill places. There will be 3 rounds for each competitor to show their stuff! Remember it’s all in fun! Everybody wins in this hilarious challenge! However there will be one outright winner that will receive a R200 Rumours Rock City voucher to redeem – as well as a super stars champagne.


Participants are welcome to join after the competition is already underway, however, they will not receive points for activities already missed, and will only be allowed to compete in the following round.

Here are the rules:

Step up to the stage and spin the wheel, perform depending on the designated spin:

- Gotta Git Down! – Perform the most entertaining dance for the judges to win their favour!

- Test Your Tenacity! – Perform a song of your choice without the words on the screen! But don’t forget the words! Trust me, we will know!

- Oh Boy…It’s a Steve Song! – Steve gets to choose your song for you this round! So sorry! A thumbs up from Steve will give you 5 extra points! A thumbs down will get you -5 points!

- Three’s a Crowd! – Get 2 of your homies up on stage to kill with your pop group! Or two other competitors will be drawn from the hat to help you perform a killer crowd performance! Must be a boy band – girl band – pop trio etc.

- Gotta Give Props! – Deliver a mesmerizing performance with the prop provided to you by the judges! Better use equals better score!

- It’s a RAP BATTLE! – Pick one of 10 provided popular rap songs of varying difficulty. More points for more difficulty! Less points for dropping the ball!

- Not Air Head, Air Guitar! – Pick one of 10 extended guitar solo songs and show off those flashy air guitar skills developed over years of practice! Performance of song counts only slightly less than performance of ROCK!

- Karaoke K-nowledge! – Before the competition starts, participants and competitors put songs suggestions into a hat – the contestant will have to perform that song to the best of their ability!



As always, there will be amazing drink specials for courage and stamina!


Most importantly - ITS FREE!

THE HISTORY (From Conrad himself)
============

WoodCrock is my birthday party that started 13 years ago at the legendary Nile Crocodile!

"Wood" because I held it over the same weekend as Woodstock 69 and "Crock" well duh! The rest is history!

We've had numerous WOODCROCKS all over - Cool Runnings Hatfield,Nile Crocodile, Cafe Barcelona, Kelly's, Tweefontein Melkery...and so forth but the best was to come in 2016 when we held Woodcrock 11 at the magical Blue Moon in Nelspruit.

==========
THE VENUE
==========

Blue Moon in Nelspruit is and will always be very close to my heart! It is in my opinion one of the best venues,Jeremy Clarkson voice- "In The WORLD!"

Blue Moon is in the market and has not been operating as a Live music venue for a couple of years now.

So when I thought of doing a WoodCrock event again I thought to myself,why not Blue Moon!? I sent a mail to Mr. Anthony Bumstead asking him how I should go about this? After telling me in a very subdued way that he is sure that I am somewhat crazy and he has no idea where I get the energy from,his reply was simply he sees no reason why not! And BOOM!!

Elvis Blue in Konsert, R150

Met 2016 wat weer ‘n wenjaar was vir Elvis Blue, kan ‘n mens net wonder wat 2017 mag inhou! Laasjaar het sy 9de studio album en tweede album in sy moedertaal, “Êrens in die middel van nêrens” , Platinum Status bereik en hom die vir hom die meeste Ghoema toekennings van enige kunstenaar ooit ingewin.


Met album verkope wat nou die 350 000 merk oorskry, en ‘n gemiddeld van 130 optredes per jaar, bly Sy eerste album na die wen van die kompetisie het binne 28 dae ná vrystelling reeds goue status bereik en ‘n paar maande later het die album platinum-status bereik en is met ‘n SAMA bekroon vir Beste Volwasse Kontemporêre Album. Die opvolg album, genaamd Journey is met nie minder as 3 SAMA-pryse in 2013 bekroon nie, naamlik Manlike Kunstenaar van die Jaar, Album van die Jaar en Liedjie Van Die Jaar vir Lifeline. Met Afrikaans het Elvis weereens met die louere weggestap by die SAMA-toekennings, toe dit bekroon is as die Beste Afrikaanse Volwasse Kontemporêre Album. Hierdie album het Elvis sommer op dag een van uitryk die eerste Afrikaanse sanger gemaak wat daarin kon slaag om op die Top Tien in die iTunes Stores te pryk. Afrikaans het ook Album van die Jaar en Beste Manlike Kunstenaar by die Ghoema Toekennings in 2014 ingepalm. Daarbenewens het Afrikaans ook die Huisgenoot Tempo-musiektoekenning vir Beste Kontemporêre Album ontvang in 2014 en het in September van laas jaar reeds Platinum status bereik. Elvis is ook in 2015 deur sy eweknieë vereër in die wen van die Wawela Musiek toekenning vir Beste Manlike kunstenaar en Komponis – ‘n gesogte toekenning deur SAMRO uitegryk.


Nog ‘n 2015 hoogtepunt vir Elvis was sy samewerking met die doyenne van Afrikaanse musiek, Laurika Rauch. Onder die direksie van Deon Opperman, het hulle produksies Hart en See reeds reg oor die land opspraak gemaak en kan ook selfs op DVD gesien word. Die produksies, wat ook vir ‘n Kanna genomineer is, het die kategorie vir “Beste Live DVD” by die 2016 Ghoema’s gewen. Tesame met Ghoemas vir Beste Luitoon, Manlike kunstenaar van die jaar, Beste liedtjie skrywer, Beste kontemporêre album deur ‘n manlike kunstenaar en Album van die Jaar vir “Erens in die middel van nêrens” en Beste musiek video vir “Die Hemel” het Elvis met 7 Ghoema’s ‘n rekord gebreek as kunstenaar met die meeste Ghoemas ooit. Dit was ‘n besige jaar met die vrystelling van ‘n Engelse album genaamd “Optics”, met die enkelsnit “The Tide” ‘n vars, unieke aanslag van ‘n kunstenaar wat lank reeds ‘n lewende legend in die bedryf geag kan word.


Hy is ‘n man met ‘n groot hart, wat ook bekend is vir sy aanwending van sy media platform vir liefdadigheids werk. Elvis is ‘n ambassadeur vir CANSA en doen veel om bewustheid te kweek. Vele hospice patiente sal getuig van sy onverwagse invalletjies by behandelings sentrums reg oor die land, kitaar in die hand. Verder beywer Elvis hom ook vir Casterbridge Musiek Akademie waar minder bevooregte kinders aan musiek en instrumente bloodgestel word, asook vir Life Community Services in George waar baie kinders se lewens aangeraak word. Sy eie initiatief, genaamd “The Cookiejar”, maak dit moontlik vir enige een wat ‘n optrede bywoon om ‘n direkte verskil te maak deur ‘n eenvoudige bydrae van los kleingeld en in 2016 het Elvis en sy span meer as R90 000 ingesamel vir spesifieke Projekte!


Die gewilde oorspronklike produksies Kaal wat reeds in Gauteng opspraak gemaak het is in 2017 by al die groot kunstefeeste te siene, en Elvis werk reeds hard aan sy nuwe album, wat op 28 April vrygestel sal word.

Prime Circle
25 Aug - (Fri) - 20:00
Price: R200

Since they first burst out of Witbank some 11 years ago, Prime Circle’s career has been an inspiration that has spawned hundreds of garage bands across South Africa, with starry-eyed young rockers hoping that one day, they might make it big the way Ross Learmonth, Dirk Bisschoff, Marco Gomes, Neil Breytenbach and Dale Schnettler did. Their 2003 debut, “Hello Crazy World”, rocketed to gold status in South Africa, with “Live This Life” (their 2005 follow-up following suit). Singles such as “Hello”, “Live This Life” and “My Inspiration” earned heavy rotation on South African radio. 2008 saw Prime Circle release “All or Nothing” which raked in the first two Prime Circle South African Music Award nominations of their career, for Record of the Year and Best Rock Album (English). To date, the first single “She Always Gets What She Wants” has received over 789 000 YouTube hits - the most-viewed South African rock song ever. “Jekyll & Hyde”, unleashed in 2010, was mixed in Los Angeles by Kevin Shirley. New York-based Sterling Sound mastering engineer George Marino laid the final touches. The first two singles from the album “Breathing” and “Turning in My Sleep” were each nominated for the SAMA for MTN Record of the Year in 2011. In March 2011, Prime Circle won the Best International Breakthrough Act at the MK Awards. The band released their fifth studio album, “Evidence” in September 2012. The first single “Time Kills Us All”, debuted on regional and national radio in South Africa to widespread acclaim. The 13-track album features the masterful recording wizardry of Theo Crous. In May 2014, Prime Circle released their 6th album, ‘Let The Night In’ before embarking on one of their biggest European and South African tours. Says Ross Learmonth, “Without the fans, we would be nothing. And I don’t ever want to do anything else. Creating music for a living is a privilege, and we never forget that.” Prime Circle are: Ross Learmonth (vocals and guitar); Marco Gomes (bass); Dale Schnettler (drums); Neil Breytenbach (keyboard) and Dirk Bisschoff (guitar). www.primecircleband.com twitter: @Prime_Circle Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/Prime.Circle

Swing City
27 Aug - (Sun) - 20:00
Price: R150

Swing City was borne of the love of swing music from three of South Africa’s most loved artists. A harmless side comment from one musician to another ended up in a serious discussion about producing a three piece singing group, backed by a full jazz orchestra and band, celebrating their love of jazz, swing and blues, but adding a modern day twist to the genre. Swing City consists of Lonehill Estate’s Nathan Ro, whose love for swing music has always engrossed the pop/ rock singer’s iPod; Graeme Watkins, whose background in music and theatre started as a swing singer long before his success on Idols or in his indie rock band “The Graeme Watkins Project”; and Loyiso Bala, whose classically trained background in music saw the singer as part of the TZKee crew, the Bala brothers in classical song and in the pop world in his own successful career. The three singers, already friends, jokingly commented what fun it would be to start a swing band. It would be years later, that they took the idea seriously, got into a rehearsal space with their friends from Figure of 8 productions and Swing City was born! 2014 Was a fresh start with Swing City teaming up with 6 time Naledi Nominee Bryan Schimmel as music director.” 2015 saw this dynamic trio take on recording their Debut Album “Well Swung”, this fresh album has been selling exceptionally well, fulfilling a major gap in the South African market. On the album, one can find collaborations featuring the likes of Lloyd Cele, Shoowop Shop and Chiano Sky. 2016 also launches exciting LIVE collaborative options featuring the guests that can be seen on the album.

Karaoke - With a Spin!

Karaoke is open for all individuals, whether competing or not. Normal karaoke will commence while competitors battle it out in between and over the course of the night. The layout of organised karaoke will be as such:

Arrangement may differ depending on number of competitors. Competitors will be judged on their performance and ability by a panel of random judges. Competitors will receive a starting 5 point for arriving dressed as a star of the vocal world. From there on, all performances will be rated out of 10 by each individual judge. While regular participants may book any slot open to them at any time – competitors names will be drawn from a hat to fill places. There will be 3 rounds for each competitor to show their stuff! Remember it’s all in fun! Everybody wins in this hilarious challenge! However there will be one outright winner that will receive a R200 Rumours Rock City voucher to redeem – as well as a super stars champagne.


Participants are welcome to join after the competition is already underway, however, they will not receive points for activities already missed, and will only be allowed to compete in the following round.

Here are the rules:

Step up to the stage and spin the wheel, perform depending on the designated spin:

- Gotta Git Down! – Perform the most entertaining dance for the judges to win their favour!

- Test Your Tenacity! – Perform a song of your choice without the words on the screen! But don’t forget the words! Trust me, we will know!

- Oh Boy…It’s a Steve Song! – Steve gets to choose your song for you this round! So sorry! A thumbs up from Steve will give you 5 extra points! A thumbs down will get you -5 points!

- Three’s a Crowd! – Get 2 of your homies up on stage to kill with your pop group! Or two other competitors will be drawn from the hat to help you perform a killer crowd performance! Must be a boy band – girl band – pop trio etc.

- Gotta Give Props! – Deliver a mesmerizing performance with the prop provided to you by the judges! Better use equals better score!

- It’s a RAP BATTLE! – Pick one of 10 provided popular rap songs of varying difficulty. More points for more difficulty! Less points for dropping the ball!

- Not Air Head, Air Guitar! – Pick one of 10 extended guitar solo songs and show off those flashy air guitar skills developed over years of practice! Performance of song counts only slightly less than performance of ROCK!

- Karaoke K-nowledge! – Before the competition starts, participants and competitors put songs suggestions into a hat – the contestant will have to perform that song to the best of their ability!



As always, there will be amazing drink specials for courage and stamina!


Most importantly - ITS FREE!

A Rocking Thrilling Birthday Party is coming to Cape Town!

Zip Zap Circus School and The Parlotones join forces to celebrate 25 years of "Zip Zap - Inspiring Kids For Life"with the new production "25LIVE, a night at the circus"


Seven years after the unprecedented very successful, “Art of Rock”, which left audiences on their feet screaming for more, Zip Zap and the Parlotones collaborate once again to present a magical mix of aerial and acrobatic mastery set to the indie rock band music. This time in grand style at the Artscape Opera House.


-------FUNDRAISING SHOW FOR THE ZIP ZAP ACADEMY


The dream of a Zip Zap Academy is soon to become a reality. New premises in Salt River will offer the much-needed space to allow more little feet to benefit from the circus magic absolutely free of charge.


It is through friends like The Parlotones and Artscape Theatre Centre who collaborate on this unique fundraiser that the goal of daring kids to dream continues to grow.


#25LIVE is directed by the combined talents of Brent van Rensburg (Zip Zap co-founder) and Kahn Morbee (Parlotones). It promises to be a night of wonder, combining the comedy and awe-inspiring feats of circus with all the band’s home-grown hits.

John-Michael Metelerkamp - Keepers
VIP Viewing Thurs 31st 18:30

Keepers

With this body of work as with all my artistic practices I undergo a process of deconstructing my past, present and

future in the hope of learning about who I am and where I find myself in the moment.

The surface of anything is a mere manifestation of the viewers ideology in whatever form that takes. So I chose to represent the true self of the protagonist in an additional face of either blue, white or red. Colour plays a huge role in my work. I use it to create juxtaposition between dark subject matter and my whimsical sense of humour.


The big forms and small figures are not totally aware of one another. A spiritual battle is taking place in these paintings.

Although I am not a Christian I have read much of the bible. The subject of faith is brought up many times. Faith means belief. And perspective alters belief. So with most of my work I analyze the subject of perspectives. Whether or not these opposing figures choose to acknowledge each other doesn’t change the fact that they do exist and will play a role in the story that unfolds.

Kaya FM & Bassline Live Present: Oliver Mtukudzi

Kaya FM 95.9, home of the Afropolitan, and Bassline Live have long been huge supporters of the Zimbabwean living musical legend, human rights activists and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Olivier Mtukudzi - and we are honoured to be hosting him in our monthly ‘Kaya Fm & Bassline Live Presents’ series, held at the Lyric, Gold Reef City every month.


Oliver, a long standing regular on Kaya FM airwaves, is one of the most globally recognised cultural icons from our continent since beginning his musical career back in the late 1970’s. With over 65 albums under his belt, Oliver also has a doctorate from two universities and is a recipient of some of the most prestigious human rights awards, including The International Council For Africana Womanism Award (ICAW), recognising his role in the upliftment of African women through his artistic work.


Oliver is also the head of an arts Academy called Pakare Paye Arts Centre that offers music and a diversity of art forms, platforming and building talent. Accompanying him on stage on the 31st will be musicians from the academy, including Fiona Gwena on Vocals and Hosho, Craig Chandamare on drums, Ashton Nyahora on guitar and vocals, Charles Njekesa on bass and Donald Kanyuchi on guitar and vocals.

With his signature husky voice, he has earned a devoted following across Africa and beyond, and his performances in the South African territory are a rare and special treat for his fans, with over a year having passed since he last performed in South Africa.


Also on board once again for this event is stylish urban outfitters Brentwood Clothing, who, as new affiliates of the venture, are standing behind the rich arts and culture scene in SA through this musical series. We are excited to grow this relationship with them.

Having toured around the world several times, Oliver is no stranger to delivering top notch performances and this show promises to bring us his distinctive Tuku Music style up close and personal with artists he has groomed and personally hand-picked for the show.

Max-Hoba Show

Multi-talented Freestate born afro-soul singer, songwriter and producer Maxhoba (MAX-HOBA) Maponya, is a breath of fresh air to the local music scene.


His sound is a beautifully blended fusion of traditional African melodies, with a twist of modern harmonies. This talented vocalist is also an experienced voice over artist and workshop facilitator. His journey to Johannesburg in pursuit of musical accomplishments led to his meeting with one of SA’s award winning Hip Hop artists, Hip Hop Pantsula (HHP). Together they worked on HHP’s albums Maftown, Omang Reloaded, YBA to NW and Acceptance Speech and created some of HHP’s top hits.


He has over the years worked with other highly acclaimed artists like Amu, Morafe, Shugasmaxx, Don Laka, Pebbles and Kabomo. 2006 saw Max-hoba join HHP’s band for the Africa is Calling tour of Germany. It was this experience that lead to him stepping out on his own to cement his solo career. In 2010 Max-hoba released his debut album titled Making History. This Urban African Soul album blends his musical influences and deals with life, love, daily living and celebrates all that happens under the African sun and beyond.

Exhibition:: Rethinking Kakotopia

Dates: 13 September – 11 October 2017

Rethinking Kakotopia (the opposite of Utopia) will essentially encompass visual explorations around the ongoing issues that surround the notion of identity and belonging in South Africa. This group exhibition comments not only on stories of emotive nationalism, xenophobia, belonging, nostalgia, sentiment, patriotism, freedom, and rage – but also on hope, empathy, and love.

The Final Journey : Dubai

Johnny Clegg embarks on The Final Journey World Tour

Nearly forty years after he began one of music’s most remarkable careers, Johnny Clegg is embarking on his Final World Tour, titled The Final Journey.

Johnny Clegg was diagnosed with cancer in 2015 and underwent chemotherapy treatment. Throughout the treatment he continued to tour locally and internationally undertaking a nine week tour of USA and CANADA in 2016. Johnny is currently finishing a new album and his autobiography. As he is in remission, Johnny has decided to use this opportunity to perform a final set of concerts in SA and overseas to thank his fans for their support over the 35 year long journey that spans his career.

Through his bands Juluka and Savuka, Clegg pioneered a uniquely South African hybrid music during a time of cultural and racial segregation. His music always offered a vision of how South Africans could find each other and the possibilities of a non-racial future. For this reason, the South African leg of the tour has tremendous import for him as it was South Africa and all South Africans that shaped him as an artist.

The iconic South African artist will start this live journey on July 1st with one show only at Grand Arena, GrandWest Casino and Entertainment World in #CapeTown. The tour will then move to the Teatro Monte Casino for two #Johannesburg shows on July 7th and July 8th, before #Durban audiences get the opportunity to see Clegg live, with a show at the Durban ICC Arena on July 29th.

Following these four South African dates, Clegg will begin the international leg of the tour, starting with shows at the Eventim Apollo in London on August 19th and a show at the Dubai Opera House on September 20th.

The tour will be built around Clegg’s unparalleled repertoire of songs which began with the release of Juluka’s Universal Men in 1979 and continued through the Savuka years and his more recent solo work.

Clegg’s many different hits and live favourites will be brought to life by the biggest production ever created for a Clegg live show, supported by his world-class live band. A highlight of the shows will be the different styles of dance that have been integral to Clegg’s life and work, ever since he learnt the fundamentals of Zulu music and traditional Zulu Inhlangwinini dancing with Charlie Mzila while still a teenager. Guest artists include the Soweto Gospel Choir.

As the tour unfolds, there will be some special surprises lined up for the audiences.

Johnny Clegg said "This will be my final set of public performances for my fans in SA and around the world. I am immensely excited to be able to bring to them an autobiographical, audio-visual and intimate account of my life through my music and The Dance. "

“Johnny Clegg is more than just one of this country’s finest musicians and entertainers. He is a national treasure who has brought together all South Africans and reminded us of what makes us great as a country.” says Cyril Ramaphosa.

"Johnny is taking time off to write his autobiography and spend time with his family and do the things he hasn't been able to do due to an incredible work schedule", said long time Johnny Clegg manager and promoter Roddy Quin. “It's been a privilege to have travelled such a long journey with Johnny and an honour to have worked and shared so many incredible experiences with him. It has truly been inspiring. And so we are excited to present The Final Journey with 4 incredible shows in SA in July and the tour, which will stretch across the world over the next few months. Johnny will still continue writing, recording and will partake in a few private engagements."

Johnny Clegg: The Final Journey World Tour represents the peak of a career that has combined near matchless music success with sustained - and significant - social, political and cultural impact.

Clegg’s recorded output as part of Juluka, Savuka and solo has earned him millions of record sales, countless awards and nominations (including a Grammy nomination) and multiple international releases, all eagerly consumed by a truly global audience. He was the forerunner of combining Western musical styles with African ones, sparking a revolution in South African music that can be still be heard in the work of artists today.

Most potently, Clegg’s ability to illuminate the connectedness of all human beings through his music meant he was a pioneer of social cohesion in South Africa. He also provided a portal for international audiences to gain a deeper understanding of the anti-apartheid movement and the journey towards, and ultimately into, freedom. For this, Clegg has received many different honours including an OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire), the South African Order of Ikhamanga and the French Chevalier des Arts et Lettres (Knight of Arts and Letters) , as well as several honorary doctorates.

Booking for the South African dates of Johnny Clegg’s Final Journey World Tour open on April 25th. Tickets for this unmissable event are expected to sell out fast as fans ensure they don’t miss this South African on his Final World Tour.

Additional South African and international dates are set to be added later in the year for what promises to be the most powerfully emotional live shows of a truly singular South African – a dancer, anthropologist, singer, songwriter, academic, and activist like no other.

Johnny Clegg: The Final Journey World Tour first phase dates:

1st July – Grand Arena Grand West, Cape Town

7th and 8th July – Montecasino, Johannesburg

29th July – Durban ICC Arena, Durban
19th August – Eventim Apollo, London

Earthdance JHB 2017

The Earthdance Global Peace Party is the world's largest underground music and dance event for peace. Held annually since 1997, the event features hundreds of music artists, DJs, dancers, and speakers at local Earthdance events around the world, on the same weekend each year. The Earthdance event is aligned with the annual international Peace Day on September 21; and includes a global synchronized affirmation for peace.[1][2] Earthdance is produced by Earthdance Global, and supports the Earthdance International non-profit organization.RE-EVOLUTION


Earthdance 21 – 2017 Theme

Today, it’s time for a universal Re-Evolution, moving us together through music and dance, towards our highest purpose of peace building and unity.


We’ve recently seen the flow of human progress diverted to side streams, whirling eddies of temporary stagnation and reversal. This is separated from the strongest flow, and from the true, and we think inevitable, evolutionary direction forward. Earthdance has not been so much an explicitly political movement, but rather a consciousness movement. We have always been about tearing down, not building walls. We believe that through our powerful, global group connection, people everywhere in every country and culture will reach heightened awareness of our common purpose – we pray together for peace, and then we celebrate!


Re-Evolution means setting ourselves, and our humanity on track to a future that will sustain our healthy children. While some might wish a return to the seemingly comfortable swamp, others must let such people know the truth, that the tadpole time is over (they just haven’t noticed their disappearing tails!). In this next time of evolutionary growth, we hop for joy, together as we explore our world, delight in nature, and celebrate the diversity that sustains us. Together we learn and expand. We include, and don’t exclude. Re-Evolution is exciting, since it’s clear that peace, social justice, environmental harmony and global unity trumps fear, anger and delusion. We attract, and recruit!


In this, our 21st year, we invite producers, musicians, artists, meditators, activists, scientists, technologists, farmers, bodyworkers, acrobats, animal lovers, water protectors, hula hoopers, innovators, caregivers, teachers, country cousins and city slickers to join in. Pray, dance, enjoy, and most of all, Re-Evolve with us!

The Muses
24 Sep - (Sun) - 20:00
Price: R150

If there is a party worth starting, the best ignition mechanism is this funky four-piece out of Gauteng that will take any sensible situation and turn it into a sensational night to remember, two violins, one viola and a single cello at a time. Meet four drop-dead gorgeous, classically-trained virtuosos, all keen to get as many people on their feet and dancing the night away each time they unpack the contents of their two carefully considered albums. Their latest, Pop On Strings 2, welcomes back violinists Olivia Kotze and Mia Snyman, viola player Ruby Ngoasheng and welcomes in newest arrival and cellist Laetitia van Wyk. The quartet’s 14 brand-new renditions of global smash-hit singles pick up where their debut left off. Only this time the wish list of songs came from the very people that help keep The Muses great. “We listened to what the fans wanted us to record, via our Facebook and Twitter pages,” Kotze explains. “This album is all about taking the energy of what unravels when we perform live, and capturing as much of that as possible for fans to enjoy between seeing and hearing us perform live. The best part is we play a good mix of events, shows, and accept interesting invites to know just how to ignite the night.” The Muses’ journey began in 2011, and in that time the four-piece have played the length and breadth of the country, invited by prestigious brands the likes of BMW, Mercedes-Benz, The Spring Summer Guess Fashion Show and the 2013 UEFA Champions League Heineken Mansion series. Known for their quality productions, qualification as classically trained, pop prepped and able to deliver musicians, the music The Muses make generates enough energy to contribute to the national power grid and light a dance floor indefinitely. Whether it’s “Party Rock”, “Pata, Pata” or “Don’t You Worry Child”, their biggest floor fillers are soon to be topped by their new inclusions from the likes of David Guetta (“Titanium”), Bruno Mars (“Locked Out Of Heaven) and P¡ink (“Try”), amongst others. The chemistry that makes The Muses spark comes from many different places. “Ruby is the rock chick and a big John Mayer fan”, Kotze explains. “Mia’s world revolves around music, she loves anything new and fresh on the market and with a busy teaching schedule there’s never a quiet moment in her life. Laetitia, or “baby-muse”, is busy studying music at the University of Pretoria, so there’s lots of classical influence in her life. I’m more of an indie and world-music lover, my all-time favourite artist is Cesária Évora.” So what’s clear is their musical influences are varied, and some even a little less mainstream, but between the four music-makers each has their favourite. The best part being that they all get to show off their rich personalities at different times, thanks to the diversity of their respective and evolving playlists. “We’ve all studied and learnt to master our instruments and the technical focus makes for some wonderful spontaneous moments,” Kotze continues, “whether we’ve brought our laser show along for the ride or not. We love to get dressed up and have some good clean fun. Classical music may be our foundation, but we’ve left the launch pad, thanks to the success of our debut, and now Pop On Strings 2. Both are powerful calling cards we’re very proud of indeed.” Great music makes for a convincing introductions and licence to traverse the country, continent, and potentially the world, should fate become currency. “We love the buzz, the wonderful energy each show brings with it,” Kotze concludes. Big or small, blue chip or A-List corporates, The Muses make the rooms they play in, and with each the quartet blazes a trail and reputation that’ll see these four busy, playing up a storm indefinitely!

Louise Almon | Present in Absence

The process of hand printing that I use for creating these images is at once conscious and deliberate while the imagery depicted is usually unconscious and spontaneous. The works are produced using oil inks on paper through a mono print technique whereby I layer colour upon colour to create a rich base texture. I then turn the paper over and continue to work from the reverse side by using strong line drawing, marks and other manipulations to pick up further layers of colour to bring out the image on the textured side.


The very process involves a direct and mindful state. The lines, marks and manipulations are drawn in “absence” of the initial textured colouring and design and only spring spontaneously to life once the paper is turned. This is when the images are finally revealed as part of the initial layering and become “present”. I also describe the works as being “present in absence” as they portray a quietness, or an aloneness, of the figures. A presence in, and because of their absence. The negative spaces hold the figures in place and in some cases merge with the positive images. It is in this “inbetween space” or “the negatives spaces around the figures” that I believe the energy is most keenly felt, and most present in its absence.


This body of work is the culmination of an intensive year of highly personlised layering of oil inks, line drawing, markings and manipulations. But it also represents over thirty years of development and experimentation with paints, paper and other materials to arrive at a signature drawing and printing technique. In this exhibition I use it to explore what is present in life by its absence.

About this event:Park Acoustics is a monthly outdoor live music concert that takes place in the unique venue that is Fort Schanskop, Pretoria. On the first Sunday of each month hundreds of people gather at the foot of Schanskop hill, ready to embark on the 5 minute bus trip to the top. Once inside the fort the atmosphere changes from inviting to intimate as great acoustics and friendly people greet you on your descent. If you arrive early, grab the best picnic spot which is under a large Umbrella Acacia tree up at the front of the stage. Park Acoustics concerts are cozy and relaxed, allowing the crowd to develop a personal connection with the talented musicians on stage. What makes Park Acoustics unique is the fact that you have a 360 degree view of Pretoria, Centurion and Johannesburg in the distance! We also boast the best sunsets in Pretoria, so do stay for that magical time of day when we all have sundowners on the hill.

OppiKoppi 23: Me now, the Mango Picker

Haaaaaallllooo South Africa! We were up, we were down, but verily we are around. And buying rounds. We were quiet but now we have a whole lot to say: 3 Big chunks of news from the dusty little tune settlement we all love. And then some smallanyana titbits for the truly interested.


Big Fact # 1: The theme for OppiKoppi 23: “Me now the mango Picker”

Theme: Inspired by a strangely beautiful tune by Carlo Mombelli, bass jazz maestro who many people claim are one of the world’s finest. (We have been saying that for years.).

And then on to the art: Pretty ne? Keeping up the gruff rock inspired festival’s support for the fine arts, this year we chose Banele Khoza. A painting to launch a ship with. Or of course a sun drenched rock festival.

Design: Marette Koorts.

Big Fact #2 - Date move: After 23 years, OppiKoppi is moving to the first week of October.

This was not a smallanyana decision.

When we started the rock music loving hedonistic bar parties in 1994 we were like adult little kids and did not know what we were doing. (Many people think OppiKoppi started big, like a giraffelette. But that was not the case. Small crazy wild bar parties for 100s of people (Everything you heard is probably true), gradually grew to the annual tune pilgrimage it is today.). Happily we still act like adult kids who don’t know what we are doing: hence this dive into our next massive crazy tactical move of date. Over the years OppiKoppi has become a South African benchmark festival on the international calendar, and 2016 just made it super clear that we had to be outside of the European summer calendar if we did want a long term festival with a strong and relevant South African and international lineup. And keep growing. Moving the festival also opens up a few alluring cooperation opportunities which makes a great deal of sense for SA bands, crews and fans. (more news soon).



Big Fact # 3 - OppiKoppi and Rocking the Daisies to

collaborate on artist selection.

After a few key conversations in Saxonwold shebeens and other less powerful moonshine canteens, both festivals realised that there was a loooooong good music laden road to be trodden if they collaborate. This could potentially be very powerful in years to come. Working together saves tears and South African rands. Both festivals are in the middle of management and renewal processes but in time we think this can really become the biggest single weekend of tunes on the Southern African music calendar. Bring them tunes closer so we can bite and/or kiss them.


Smallanyana facts

SF#1 - Line-up: www.oppikoppi.co.za
SF#2 - Early Bird tickets SOLD OUT.

General admission tickets: goo.gl/CUUw0K or www.computicket.com

SF#3 - If you bought a Kreesmas ticket and the dates don’t work for you, you are welcome to contact us: email tickets@plankton.mobi


Finally a word of thanks and invitation: this past year has been testing and crazy one for us, the fans, the service providers and suppliers. Actually for South Africa. Thanks for everyone hanging in with us. There will be national rum ‘n coke celebrations in the small bar for the tune faithful (“And if you say rum, I will rum with you”).



And songs of victory. And songs of peasants (us). And braaiing with other peasants. And against them. But mostly just songs. We are ordinary people and have a lot of love to give.


Remember:

To be an outlaw, you must be honest. Personal freedom = personal responsibility.


Come throw your skinny body onto the dust and then join us in the small bar. For long.


Let’s dance. Lekker

PS: it feels good to be out there, and swinging. Wooohooo! If we are gonna go, we go with happiness.
