"Imagine a performance with the indigenous Khoi mouth bow accompanied by a mesmerizing west African kora, soulful Afrikaans guitar in there with soothing powerful vocals, hypnotising Indian tablas, piercing spoken word by a formidable feme, hauting violin and throbbing primal drums...There are hundreds of events happening this weekend, but none will be as diverse as this. This a truly South African sound bringing everyone together."
"I like this because its not any particular genre its
beautiful music by beautiful people...our people all of them
represented. Not performing separately... performing together. Something
you've never heard and might not for a while... unless you want it so." - Keitu Gwangwa
