Halala Africa - Cape Town's Latest Favourite Show!

The Music

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 9 piece band!

The Stories

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?

I really want to thank you for such a wonderful evening last night!

The band was so animated and into the music. And those VOICES! Oh my word!

Gosh so much nostalgia!

Sandy Hoffman

I am a very proud South African who found this musical and food journey through South Africa’s last 50 years, moving and inspiring.

I am so in awe of the musicians - so talented.

The show was worth a lot more than we paid for it as it brought so many memories and emotions out for me - and a load of goosebumps!

Please please please do another one! The world needs to see this show!

An amazing, vibey experience that I would recommend to all if an opportunity arises. Not to be missed!

Lindie Buirski

A fantastic group of talented musicians who I would highly recommend.

They brought such delightful and vibrant energy to the launch event of the 'Nelson Mandela in Cape Town - Legacy Exhibition' at Cape Town's City Hall.

I totally sing their praises.

Marc Orion Smith

I attended the launch of the Nelson Mandela exhibition in Cape Town City Hall.

Halala Africa was the band providing live music.

What a pleasure to see them in action! Upbeat music with amazing musicians, music for all ages and preferences, and such an interesting story behind the band.

Highly recommended!
