TRADITIONAL AFRICAN MUSIC (article first published : 2006-02-20)

A festival of Traditional African Music is to be held on April 27 (Freedom Day) at Lookout Hill Tourist Facility in Khayelitsha in Cape Town.

The festival is in the form of a competition between 12 different groups in Khayelitsha who have undergone professional training in traditional dance, instrument making and stage performance over a 10 week period. They are playing for big cash prizes, including one for best costumes. Only authentic African food and drinks (homemade) will be on sale, as well as some craftwork. All proceeds will go to promoting traditional music and dance in schools.

Security in this facility is excellent, and a full team of security guards will be on duty, as well as professional paramedics.

Tickets R150 seating limited to 200 (R5 standing room tickets). The venue has a capacity of 800. There is parking for buses and car guards will be on duty.
