We are excited to introduce the younger artists who will be performing at the Cry of Africa Show on Friday evening:
As a member of the popular DNA Strings, Ulysses aka Herman Steyn knew when they disbanded that he would come back to this world of making music. As someone who loves instrumental music, he also knew it would be in that genre – one of the toughest to crack. But this energetic violinist is nothing but determined to make music – and do it his way. Herman is the founder of Sheraaz band and he will be performing solo in the upcoming show.
From Soshanguve, a young band, ArtSpoken, is making waves on the local music scene. Four young guys with big hearts and great new songs, combining poetry and music in a beautiful new vibe. "We are going to perform Africa and look forward to be playing with the icons like Coenie and Pops" says Tumi Resenga, the Band's Manager.
Join us today on the iStart2 Show when Coenie de Villiers and Pops Mohamed chat to us about their song Naledi and their collaboration at the Atterbury Theatre on Friday night. "I often think that musicians can teach the lessons the politicians fail to show. Musicians and artists and writers can unite people by creating great works that make people listen and learn and not judge," says Coenie.
