The Artscape Theatre presents a “road trip” from Cape Town to Homelands Emampondweni and back by their Artist in Residence, Dizu Plaatjies as part of their Heritage month celebration.
The road trip features artists with whom Plaatjies has worked with through the years, such as Madosini and Pops Mohamed, to showcase the past and present work of his musical journey. His current live act of 5 to 7 multi-instrumentalists cover repertoire from his work of over 25 years while always offering something fresh. There is singing, dancing and performance on many rare African instruments that he has collected in his career.
Plaatjies has won two South African Music Awards – for best African Independent music album (2009) and best African Adult Album (2016) – and has toured in countries such as France, Norway, Holland, Malaysia, Belgium and Germany as well doing numerous dates in South Africa.
This event forms part of Artscape’s Heritage Festival.
Venue: Artscape Theatre, D.F. Malan St, Foreshore, Cape Town
