AWESOME AFRICA (article first published : 2004-09-8)

One of the key events on the KZN cultural calendar is the sixth The Standard Bank Awesome Africa Music Festival which will be held for the second time in Durbanís Albert Park from September 24 to 26. Last yearís festival was applauded by organisers, the public and the community alike as being the best ever.

This Yearís festival focuses on leading artists from countries who supported South Africaís struggle for freedom and include Tanzania, Burundi, Zimbabwe, Chad, Kenya, Namibia, Mozambique, Angola, DRC, Singapore, France, Uganda, Reunion, Italy, Brazil, India and the United States. In addition, the massive contingent of local artists includes a selection of well-established favourites and rising young forces on the music scene!

As in previous years there will be a rich selection of satellite events in the time leading up to the festival in areas in and around Durban featuring Awesome Africa participants performing with emerging and established artists. In previous years, some of the most boundary-breaking collaborations have been established in the curtain-raiser events.
