SAVELA FOR BAT (article first published : 2003-04-25)

The Clermont-based group Savela appears on May 2 in the second gig of an exciting series of monthly Maskanda music gigs at Durban’s popular BAT Centre. Presented with funding from the National Lottery Trust Fund and managed as a development project by the Bees Consulting Group in collaboration with co-sponsor Transafrica Express, these take place on the first Friday of each month at 17h30 for 18h00.

Transafrica Express restaurant hosts these informal monthly events featuring a locally based group of performers on the BAT deck overlooking the harbour. Admission is free, a full cash bar is available and meals can be ordered.

Savela is spearheaded by Qaphele Radebe (lead guitar), Thokozane Khumalo (bass guitar) and Msizene Mkhize (drums). The group, who have performed in community halls and at township gigs for several years, will play two sets between 18h00 and 20h00 with an interval of 40 minutes, offering music lovers the ideal opportunity to start the weekend in relaxed mode in ideal surroundings.

Emerging Sounds Level will raffle three of the latest compact disc releases from Gallo Records at these events, and the proceeds will go to the evening’s performing musicians.

“Following the success of the launch of this project last month, we are delighted to present the second event in the series, highlighting more promising talent in this region,” says project manager Dr Romanus Monj. “We aim to create an ongoing platform for local groups both in Durban, and in selected rural areas of KwaZulu-Natal, by helping them to develop their skills in professional presentation.”
