CAPE TOWN ALBUM LAUNCH - COME SHAKE A TAIL FEATHER
On Saturday night 7 November, we will be painting the town orange. Why orange? Because we will all be going down to Amadoda to celebrate the launch of the album! Amadoda is a shebeen style venue in Woodstock that brings the township vibe into the heart of Cape Town, where everything is orange - the walls, the aprons, the jukebox... therefore this will be, erm, an orange carpet event! We will be dressing up Sophiatown style, with glitz, glamour, pap and pesto (but more about that next week... )
WATCH SHIFT PERFORMANCE ON YOUTUBE
On Wednesday 7 October Nomfusi peformed Vuma, a song her sangoma mother Kwazibani taught her, on SHIFT, SABC1. This song, which celebrates the ancestors, came to Kwazibani in a dream. Nomfusi penned her own verse section, which complements the song beautifully. Watch at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gr8W_L6l0g
Herewith an English translation of "Vuma"
"Hear hear to our forefathers"
