We don’t leave you unattended on the 1st weekend of the Easter month
Catch Napo Masheane with her latest reworked offering titled “Napo Masheane and
Friends: featuring-Ladies In Jazz ,The Fat Black Women Sing &
and if this rehearsal clip is anything to go by, one can expect to get blown away
Napo Masheane & Friends” is a cumulating showpiece altered from its 2008 run, paying homage to the development and fortification of spoken word. This scintillating production unequivocally weds spoken word with smooth tunes of Afro-Jazz and soulful spiritual sounds of Gospel.
For the first time, Napo Masheane will collaborate on stage with “Ladies in Jazz,” rejuvenating the music language with layers of experience and life profoundly lived.
The twist that will be brought is that of an all-male acapella group “Beyond Vocal” which will be infusing their unique Gospel sounds with the oral tradition poetry while “Fat Black Women Sing” will bring a sense of beauty and humour within spoken word. All this will be taking place this week at the Soweto Theatre on the 2nd and 5th of April 2015 with the theme of the event being ‘Poetry meets Gospel & Jazz’ as we celebrate the Easter Weekend.
Ticket prices: R80 adults and R30 students
The show will be presented as follows:
– 20h00 on the evening of Thursday, 2 April 2015
– 18h00 on the evening of Sunday, 5 April 2015
Bookings can be made via the Soweto Theatre website or by calling 074 308 4743.
