This year we go by the theme ONE LAST DANCE AFRICA
We are pleased to announce that University of KwaZulu Natal African Music and Dance 3 students in the School of Arts (African Music African Music Project) have set the date of that big annual concert called African Cultural Calabash which promotes and emphasizes that African people know and embrace their roots with pride in their culture.
This will be the 14th AFRICAN CULTURAL CALABASH & AFRICAN CUISINE. This year it takes a different route of exposing vibrant aspiring artists who have not been given chance to showcase their craft on big stages. We never disappoint, we have chosen artists who invoke emotions to an extent of leaving the audience in tears or desperately falling in love with the entire experience. The likes of Nobuhle Khuzwayo who is a songstress, well known by her style of fusing Afro Soul and Folk Music. Akulture who sing a new age Scathamiya that involves Afro Soul and RnB. Milton Chissano who blesses people with original Afro Jazz. And lastly Palmskandic, the fusion of Palmwine guitar all the way from Ghana with local South African Maskandi.
On the dance side we have groups that always leave the stage upside down with audiences asking for more because of the fire they bring on stage. The likes of Ikusasa Lethu, which is an ensemble of African Music and Dance students that performs a broad repertoire of musics and dance. For example; Zulu dance, kwasakwasa and Shikubu etc. And lastly Iphupho Lethu who strictly perform indlamu.
The event will take place at UKZN Howard Theatre, 04 October 2019 at 19:30 pm. Tickets are available on AMD 3 students. For more information contact Nomthandazo: 076 731 0475 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
