Not only is it the monthly banging MTV Base party this Friday, but this month’s shindig heralds in the MTV MAMA’s taking place next week in the fair land of Masai warriors, vast stretching plains and wildebeest gunning it around in massive herds – you guessed it, Kenya. Latinova in Rosebank will be hosting the MTV Africa Music Awards party on Friday, 2 October in anticipation of the 2009 MTV Africa Music Awards to be held in there on the 10th of October.

Don’t Miss: The last Party People at ROKA this week…

Don’t Miss: The last Party People at ROKA this week…

Sadly the fabulous indoor/outdoor venue ROKA is closing down as apparently their lease will not be renewed… So many of us have kicked back at some of our best Jozi nights out at ROKA, lapped up some superb live performances and induced some of the worst cocktail hangovers… Anyone that attended a Party People will have fond memories of one of Jozi’s best party nights… this Thursday is the last time Party People will take place at ROKA and we urge all the Party People to be there! Party People congrats and we wish you an even better next venue. Change is often a good thing.  On a brighter note, Cape Town Party People will feature the divine ZUBZ, do NOT miss this Cape Town… see below. Dj Kenzhero Presents Party People 3rd Anniversary Feat: Kwani Experience and Special guests Johannesburg 25th July 2009 This month, the month of July 09 is both bitter and sweet. The sweet part is that this month we, Party People; Dj Kenzhero and the people of the Party People celebrate 3 whole years of throwing and enjoying possibly the greatest Hip-Hop event to ever hit Jo’Burg City, and I say this with confidence. The bitter part is that Party People and Dj Kenzhero see the last Party People to take place at Roka, I know it’s hard to swallow. But, Dj Kenzhero could not let this affect the musical act Party People would feature this month. It took Kenzhero a while to finally decide on who will perform the last live performance at Roka and still do our 3rd anniversary justice, and along came the thought of Kwani Experience. But why Kwani Experience? Kenzhero the hero thought whom better to translate the history of Party People through music than Kwani Experience? They’ll be doing a set “with the cliché twist”, says Kwani’s spokesperson Po Box, “There’ll be new songs, favorite joints; fused with surprises and surprise acts. We don’t wanna reveal much, but expect some of your favorite acts who have performed at Party People in the last three years.” “We might also do a collaboration with Kenny, we haven’t done it since 2005 so it would be nice…just come to the show words sometimes can’t explain music”, Po concluded. And well with all that said come and join us for the last dance at Roka Lounge, situated on 44 Stanley Ave Milpark. Tickets for this one will be sold at the door for R100. Doors will open at 9:00pm. See you there! For More Info see: www.myspace.com/partypeoplesa or www.myspace.com/kwaniexp Cape-Town Feat Zubz the last letter Zula Bar, Cape-Town 24th July 2009 Last...

Represent Competition: ‘Balkanology – The Resurrection’

Represent Competition: ‘Balkanology – The Resurrection’

We love the intro to the Balkanology bash (on the 9th of April in Cape Town – sorreee Jozi): ” It’s the biggest Balkan party in South Africa. It’s the only Balkan party in South Africa.” If that’s not convincing enough (they even have reductions for pensioners) then maybe the thought of grooving to Dj’s and musicians playing Gypsy, Serbian, Macedonian, Bulgarian and Romanian melodies whilst not setting a foot out of the fairest Cape may do? Either way, we’ve hustled a pair of DOUBLE TICKETS (worth nearly 500 ROND) for a lucky someborry, but you’re gonna have to work for it! Here’s how: 1. Visit the Balkanology site and have a browse 2. Email us the name of ONE of the musicians in the Kolo Novo Movie Band 3. In your email – which must be sent to editor@represent.co.za, please include your name, age, ID number and your contact details (phone and email). Pensioners welcome. 4. Do this before the 2nd of April. We will announce the winner on the 3rd. AND NO discussions will be entered into, the winner will be chosen through a draw. One entry per wannabe winner please, don’t jam up our inbox. Here’s more info – GOOD LUCK! BALKANOLOGY LIVES AGAIN Date: Thursday, 9 April 2009 (just before the Easter long weekend and Second Seder, so we are featuring a full Seder Matzah and bitter stuff) Venue: Bloemendal Restaurant (follow the signs) Doors open:             19:00 Tickets:                      R220 for pre-sold, R240 at the door. Students and pensioners pay R200 Ticket bookings:       Visit: www.balkanology.co.za for a comprehensive list of ticket outlets. The most talked about cult event of the season is just around the corner. Balkanology is back on Thursday, 9 April 2009 at Bloemendal. The Balkanology parties in South Africa were first launched in June 2006 by Event Director Ma’or Harris and a distinctive, highly talented group of collaborators. After five hit parties with numbers growing from 500 to 3 000, Balkanology has created a powerful brand synonymous with zest, energy and a theatrical music experience. Balkanology is styled in the way of traditional Eastern European gypsy camps. The party is an opportunity to lose your inhibitions for a night, enjoy the madness of DJ’s and musicians performing a remixed fusion of Gypsy, Serbian, Macedonian, Bulgarian and Romanian melodies. As well as theatre performances and market. Lineup: ·  Kolo Novo Movie Band – founded by musical director, Grada Djeri specifically for Balkanology and featuring some of the biggest names in SA music ·  Top Balkan DJ, Robert Soko (of BalkanBeats) – the Croatian from Germany ·  DJ Toby2shoes – the ambassador for Balkan-gypsy-folk in...
