One good thing about music…

There’s only one place to be on February 9th and that’s at JHBLive’s “Hit Me With Music” bash at Carfax celebrating the legendary Bob, Reggae and the Irie life in generaal. Bob Marley, like many fabulous talented groovy party people we know, is an Aquarian born in February, the 8th to be exact, make sure you celebrate Bob and all that he taught us in true Ragga style. Represent! Hit Me With Music is back after a hugely successful show in 2007. It’s a tribute to Bob Marley – a man whose music and lyrics have given hope and inspiration to millions of people around the globe. Marley represents an ideology of freedom, his work touching on both personal liberation and liberation of the African mind and spirit. His lyrics have given hope and inspiration to many. In his spirit, JHBLive introduces the Hit Me With Music Party 2008. This year’s event has a 70’s African Revival theme. The main floor will host live acts, which will stage a tribute to the music of Bob Marley. The Carfax outside area will be transformed into a 70’s-style African shebeen, accompanied by a small market, complete with a selection of mouth-watering West African and Ethiopian cuisine. For those with harder tastes, there will be a ragga-style drum ‘n bass floor to keep your feet grooving all night long. Come join us for a night of inspiration, perspiration and jubilation!

Ladies get enchanted by the Quadro…

Mhh, Good looking talented Brothers in suits singing coolio harmony and opera with deeep bassey voices… ladies, this one’s for you.  The Soweto Opera Quadro will be hitting the road to take their Brothers in Song show to both Johannesburg and Cape Town audiences in March and April this year, in what is set to be not merely a tour, but a tour de force. The four Soweto singers that make up the outfit – tenors Elliot Koena, Edward Mabunda and Bokang Sehau, as well as baritone Xola Mpo – are causing quite a stir in local music circles, making opera accessible to the broader public while not compromising on quality. These versatile performers are capable of wrapping their finely-tuned vocal cords around anything from jazz, opera and Broadway standards to Afro-pop, traditional music and gospel. The Soweto Opera Quadro will give two performances at the Baxter Concert Hall in Cape Town on Saturday, 1 March 2008, at 5.30pm and 8.30pm. Thereafter, they travel to London’s West End to participate in the South Africa Proud! Festival. The quartet then head back to Johannesburg to perform Brothers in Song at the UJ Arts Centre from 15 to 27 April 2008. An added treat at the concerts will be the presence of special guest Loveline Madumo, a talented soprano who also enchants audiences as a member of the celebrated Black Tie Ensemble. Musical direction for the Brothers in Song show is by Mark Cheyne, who also conducts, with staging by Trish McKenna. The concerts promise to deliver a blend of music to suit all tastes. Music-lovers can expect to hear exquisite renditions of a diverse selection of tunes by the likes of Josh Groban, Il Divo, The Beatles, George Harrison, Verdi, Johannes Kerkorrel and Nianell. Booking for all the Brothers in Song concerts is open at Computicket. The Soweto Opera Quadro is: Edward Mabunda Born in Soweto, Edward started singing at an early age.

She is an extraordinary poet, rapper and singer. Describing her art as her “inner guide to personal freedom”, she started writing when she was 12 years old – attending poetry and hip hop shows religiously. Having become an avid reader, she fell in love with words and discovered their power to shape all of existence. She believes that “the word is the strongest medium because not only does it speak to the mind, it also speaks to the soul.” She started performing as an emcee before she did as a poet, at cyphers in Ghandi Square and at Le Club. She believes that hip hop served as an unlimited resourced in her life, constantly providing her with challenges and the strength to deal with her own reality. She then started rapping in different venues and became one of the first female emcees that the Jozi hip hop community paid attention to, often being the only female alongside male emcees. She is currently working on her own album which is due for release in June 2008 and is featured on other hip hop projects such as, the Abomrapper II and the Classix compliation albums, also due for release in 2008. Some of Bianca’s most memorable performances: • Bianca performed...
