About

MADALA KUNENE AND LERATO LICHABA LIVE 

FEATURING MAHOYANA NKWANYANA AND GONTSE MAKHENE 

MANGROVE BRAAMFONTEIN 

THURSDAY 06 MAY 2021 | 18:00 – 22:00 | LIMITED TICKETS 

The legendary Madala Kuneneis a guitarist, singer, songwriter, composer and musical anthropologist whose native rhythms cross the musical lines between jazz and Zulu folk blues. Affectionately known as ‘Bafo’ - which means brother; his sound has become a staple diet on music stages across South Africa for well over five decades and his dexterity on the six string has earned him the title of “King Of The Zulu Guitar”. 


His friend in music, Lerato Lichaba, is a self-taught guitarist, composer, arranger and founder of the prolific ensemble, Urban Village and non-profit creative hub, House of Kuumba. Lerato’s music style is inspired by his life experiences and how different cultures and traditions blend in the language of his music. It was only fitting that the two, who met through and worked together during the Forest Jam Groove Orchestra tour, have come to work together to continue crafting a new music language that will take listeners to a forgotten yet familiar place. 

The Corners of Forgotten Theories Concert Series presents Madala Kunene and Lerato Lichaba live at The Mangrove on Thursday 6thMay 2021 at 18:00. They will be joined by Maskandi great, Mohoyana Nkwanyanaand the ever charismatic percussionist, Gontse Makhene
