Cape Cultural Collective event at the Slave Church Museum

The Cape Cultural Collective’s final monthly programme for 2016, Here Comes The Sun, takes place on Friday October 28 at the Slave Church Museum in Long Street, at 7pm.

Jitsvinger with his rapid fire lyrics, singer/songwriter Byron Clarke, rapper Riyaadh “Riyo” Sarang and young slam poet Vusumuzi Mpofu will perform alongside the Black Roots Marimba and singer Nahum from Langa. The audience will also be entertained by the sweet sounds of the collective’s Junior Rosa Choir and the poetry of Ziqu Pro-Found Ndabezitha.

The theme speaks to the coming of spring, the challenges and opportunities that change brings.

The programme is organised in collaboration with the SA Sendinggestig Museum (Slave Church Museum). “Our theme speaks both to the arrival of spring and processes of social change we grapple with,” said Cape Cultural Collective veteran, Thulani Nxumalo. “We need to listen to the voices of our youth and all those who raise matters of importance to society.”

Entry is free and donations are welcome. The sound is provided by Elton Goslett and his team. Halaal refreshments will be on sale.

The second of the two CCC fundraisers for the year takes place on Saturday December 3 at the YES WE CAN centre at the Eco Village in Pinelands. Tickets will go on sale from the end of the month.
