Chance to see Ndlovu choir


The Citizen (KZN) - - City - – Cit­i­zen re­porter

Move­ment is proud to an­nounce the first three artists to grace the stage at its up­com­ing fest.

Of all the cul­tural, so­cial or po­lit­i­cal tools avail­able to hu­mankind to mar­shal thought and com­mit­ment into co­he­sive and pur­pose­ful ac­tion, mu­sic re­mains the sin­gu­larly most pow­er­ful. Who could for­get Live Aid across the world, The Nel­son Man­dela Fes­ti­val in Lon­don and our own Con­cert in the Park in 1985, which brought to­gether 150 000 South Africans to cel­e­brate, through mu­sic, the one­ness of the peo­ple in the face of apartheid?

Right2Unit­e, a pro­gres­sive so­cial move­ment that is ded­i­cated to the ad­vance­ment of equal­ity, tol­er­ance, en­gage­ment, unity and co­he­sion, based around the core value of hu­man rights, is proud to an­nounce the first three artists to grace the stage at its up­com­ing Right2Unit­e Fes­ti­val for the Peo­ple at the Cra­dle Bou­tique Ho­tel in Krom­draai, Jo­han­nes­burg, on March 21.

Ndlovu Youth Choir

If there is one group who have en­thralled, ex­cited and brought global au­di­ences to their feet to de­liver a pow­er­ful mes­sage of unity over the past year, it is South Africa’s Ndlovu Youth Choir.

Their toe-tap­ping, en­er­getic and show stop­ping per­for­mances on Amer­ica’s Got Tal­ent sent out a mes­sage to the world that these news kids on the block are here to stay. The Ndlovu Youth Choir will bring their unique and fresh Afro Pop in­ter­pre­ta­tions of clas­sic hits and tra­di­tional South African mu­si­cal gems to the Fes­ti­val in an ex­plo­sion of colour, dance and in­fec­tious melodies.

Ap­ple Gule

In­flu­enced by the likes of John Leg­end, The Week­end and 6lack, Ap­ple Gule blazes his own trail with a brand of soul, new age R&B and pop for the new gen­er­a­tion. His de­but six track EP Hand­writ­ten has set the charts alight and Ap­ple’s slick live moves are bound to be a sure-fire fes­ti­val favourite.

Easy Freak

With a nat­u­ral fu­sion of pop, elec­tro, funk and soul, Easy Freak have been mak­ing waves and get­ting crowds mov­ing to a fresh and unique sound. The Dur­ban duo made up of Dom Hurd and Jude Ken­rick have un­equiv­o­cally made their mark play­ing at some of South Africa’s big­gest mu­sic festivals along­side the likes of Damian Mar­ley, Riky Rick, Cassper Ny­ovest, Kwesta, and Mi Casa. Their groove-based tunes are per­fect for a sum­mer’s day at the Fes­ti­val for the Peo­ple.

With more ex­cit­ing artists to be an­nounced over the com­ing weeks The Right2Unit­e Fes­ti­val for the Peo­ple prom­ises to be the ul­ti­mate feel-good uni­fy­ing mu­sic, dance, art and cul­tural event of 2020.
