We chatted to this energetic entrepreneur about the Peace Concert in Jo'burg at the Maboneng Precinct on 3 December @Zen, Emthonjeni Arts and her views on sustainability through community upliftment.

The Africa for Africans network and The Festival au Desert
partnership will be a melting pot of arts engagements, opening of new markets, collaborations and dialogues at a two-week long residency programme at the Emthonjeni Arts centre in Hamburg, South Africa from 3 – 16 December, 2013.

It is in celebration of Africa that we are hosting this collaboration of Mali and South Africa, in particular the Xhosa people of the Eastern Cape. Africans will come together to create magic! Because Africa is magical”, says Mazwai
