Back to our human roots
Roots of Humankind music festival Nirox Sculpture Park, Joburg Sunday, 10am Tickets R300 to R320 at acousticsnow.org Africa is the birthplace of humanity, so the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site is the perfect venue for today’s Roots of Humankind music festival.
The organisers say the event is all about “interpreting indigenous sounds and rhythms through modern allegories”. The festival will feature genres ranging from maskandi and Afro-folk to Afropsychedelia, and there will be an array of traditional and home-made instruments, guitars, concertinas, percussion and voice to enjoy. The line-up will include Bongeziwe Mabandla, Bantu Continua Uhuru Consciousness, The Urban Village, Skorokoro Ensemble, Qadasi & Maqhinga and Pops Mohamed. Bring a picnic blanket, and come and enjoy a day of sunshine and homegrown music. No pets, food or booze allowed through the gates.
