BAYEDE SHAKA (article first published : 2006-07-21)

Bayede Shaka - The Spear is Born is an internationally-acclaimed original musical written and directed by Edmund Mhlongo. Performed by K-Cap Alive Kids from KwaMashu it runs in the Playhouse Opera from July 20 to 26.

This return season features the impressive Henry Cele who will reprise the title role for which he has become famous. Joining him will be Brenda Mhlongo (Nandi). The production presents an excellent opportunity to create awareness and promote the heritage of South Africa, in particular the Nguni culture.

Bayede Shaka The Spear Is Born features energetic Zulu dancing accompanied by drumming and full band of experienced musicians: two guitarists, a bassist, drummer, percussionist and pianist.

Book at Computicket or Dial-A-Seat on 031 369 9555/4444. More information from Xolani Chris Majozi on 083 621 6338 or e-mail: xolanimajozi@gmail.com
