ZAKIFO MU­SIC FES­TI­VAL, DURBAN

The fourth an­nual Zakifo Mu­sic Fes­ti­val will be spread across three iconic Durban venues – the BAT Cen­tre, Views at Twenty5, and Blue La­goon Beach – and prom­ises a wide-rang­ing line-up of mu­si­cians from across the African con­ti­nent and be­yond. Kick­ing off the fes­ti­val on Fri­day night is a fundrais­ing con­cert for the Nel­son Man­dela Foun­da­tion at the BAT Cen­tre, fea­tur­ing Sekou Kouy­ate, a renowned kora player from Guinea, and El­ida Almeida, a young Cape Verdean folk singer. Head­lin­ing the evening is South African icon Sipho “Hot­stix” Mabuse. From there the fes­tiv­i­ties move to Views @ Twenty5 for the rest of Fri­day night and also for Satur­day night. This ex­cep­tional rooftop venue of­fers panoramic views of the city, the per­fect backdrop for the evening per­for­mances. Zakifo re­turns to Blue La­goon Beach on Sun­day for the fi­nal day of the fes­ti­val with head­lin­ing act Aloe Blacc. Tick­ets are avail­able from www.nutick­ets.co.za.
