"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" - Keitu Gwangwa
