Come celebrate spring Afro-pop sensation Mafikizolo

Spring is in the air; flowers are in bloom, birds in abundance, and a long heritage weekend is around the corner and best of all…afro-pop sensation Mafikizolo are pruned, primed and ready to revive our souls as they headline the Old Mutual Music in the Gardens’ Sunday, 15 September at 15:00 at the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens. Pack a picnic basket, pull out your favourite summer dress, those linen shorts, and a concept hat for effect, apply lots of sunscreen and bring family and friends for a day of fun at Joburg’s premier botanical garden. Celebrated duo Mafikizolo will bring their 60s inspired afro-jazz and contemporary soul beats to what promises to be a revitaliser of a concert. Having taken over the South African airwaves with the smash single “Khona” from their Reunited album, Mafikizolo will be embarking on an extensive African tour and this marks one of the last opportunities to catch them on home soil before they leave. There’s more - multi-instrumentalist and Idols finalist Sindi Nene will be the opening act. With one of the most unique voices in the industry, she is definitely going to set the tone for an incredible heritage-filled day at the Gardens. Music fans are encouraged to come early, bring picnic chairs and blankets and spend the day in natural splendour. There is a restaurant in the gardens plus a supervised children’s area. Tickets from Computicket.
