TRANSAFRICA MUSIC (article first published : 2004-06-14)

The BAT Centre hosts regular Music on the Deck and Sunday Sessions.

Music on the Deck on June 18 at 18h00 features the nine-piece maskanda group, Abahlabakise neThembalethu. The Music on the Deck programme on June 25 at 18h00 hosts Vumile no Jikelele, an eight-piece maskanda group under the leadership of Vumile Mngoma.

The BAT Centre holds popular Sunday Sessions and June 20 at 15h00 will see a performance by Shopi no Sophindafuthi. This is an eight-piece maskanda/afro-beat group whose leader is music activist, bassist and composer, Themba "Ntshebe" Ngcobo, who is best known as the co-composer of Busi Mhlongo's Urban Zulu album. This group is very active in the Indigenous Music project and a shining light of the project destined for a successful career in the music industry.

The Sunday Session on June 27 at 15h00 will host Samsam & Friends who will play Afro-jazz, jazz standards and original material. This five piece student group from the Durban Institute of Technology features the Samkelisiwe Manjeya (vocals), Brendan Cloete (drums), Sabelo Masondo (bass) and Reggie and Nathi on keyboards.

All events are free unless otherwise stated. The Music on the Deck and Sunday Sessions are presented in association with the BAT Centre Trust. In the event of inclement weather the performances will be presented in an alternative venue. Program is subject to change. More information on 031 332 0804.
