“She is blessed with many colours,
she is richer than a culture, she is a melting pot of spice.”
Tally Ho! Productions presents Shades of Africa in Concert. This musical celebration features the exciting new duo, Shades of Africa accompanied by the mighty Stellenbosch City Orchestra under the direction of Dr. Paul Loeb van Zuilenburg.
“Unforgettable songs, old and new, performed with Mzansi flair.”
Award-winning pianist and vocalist Christof van Der Berg and Nhoza Sitsholwana of Black South Easter fame, perform their own originals and rearrangements of traditional Xhosa, Sesotho and Afrikaans folk songs. Their set is rounded-off with some timeless classics such
as John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ and Tony Renis’s ‘Quando, Quando, Quando’, performed with a distinctly African flair. These phenomenal performers sing their unique duets in a mixture of isiXhosa, Sesotho, English and Afrikaans whilst being accompanied by a 40-piece orchestra with original orchestrations by Jaco Griessel.
“Reach for the rainbow in her sky.”
Come join us for a magical evening of rhythm and soul, an explosion of colour, a celebration of our collective identity as a nation in its multi-faceted individuality, using music, and the spoken word.
