SOUTH AFRICAN MUSIC WEEK (article first published : 2001-08-31)

South African Music Week taking place from August 25 to September 1 will see many live music venues around the country showcasing the incredible depth of South Africa's musical talent.

Not only will live music venues be filled with the melodious sounds of South African music, but as many entertaining venues - from restaurants to bars and clubs - will also host musicians, bands and singers from around the country.

"Live performances are the heart of South African Music Week," comments the Midi Trust's Rosie Katz. "It is by watching and listening to our musicians that South Africans will realise the sheer class, beauty and power South African musicians have.

"To do this we are hoping to fill every single live music venue in the country, every day of the week, in what will be the largest exposť of South African music ever."

As well as concentrating on entertainment venues, South African Music Week will ensure the high presence of South African music in retail stores around the country with in store promotions and band signings.

A National Skills Development Programme throughout the week has also been planned that will see issues surrounding South African Music Week, from song writing to the media discussed, and performance skills being transferred.

Historic South African music documentaries will be screened at many venues in Gauteng, informing the public on the history of our music.
