An Amazing South African Cultural Experience! Début Show!
A two-hour journey through the soaringly beautiful music produced in South Africa from the 1960s to present day.
Genres include folk, jazz, rock and pop from musicians like Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela, Johnny Clegg, Vicky Sampson, eVoid, Springbok Nude Girls, Freshly Ground and more! All pumped out by a drums, bass, keyboard, guitar, sax and penny whistle playing and singing 7 piece band!
The sad, the happy, the funny and often staggering stories round that music, narrated by our story-telling maestro producer, with animated audio-visuals.
For example, how did the Apartheid government completely misunderstand the Meadowlands song with hilarious results. Or why is there a band Called Springbok Nude Girls? Why wasn’t Bright Blue arrested for playing banned music?
All rounded off with servings of the most famous South African cuisine, served tapas-style, in a taste-bud dazzling 5-course meal.
Meals include dishes like bobotie, biltong, pap en sous, Umngqusho, vetkoek and mince, Don Pedro, koeksisters and Baobab Fruit ice-cream.
