Whilst Skunk Anansi can be abbreviated to 'SA' and 'Anansi' sounds a bit like 'Mzanzi', I believe they are a British band.  ;)

For ron g & any others that enjoyed the Fishwives videos I linked to.

My query to Strato got their rear into gear & they have now posted on Soundcloud.

With thanks to F_D for this pearl of wisdom!

Loki Rothman
Laurika Rauch
Van Coke Kartel
MacStanley

Music is my escape.

We went to a 're-opening' for the Alhambra Theatre last night in support of efforts to save the building and to provide arts education for schools. Aside from the performance by the City Kids School (which was excellent) there was a lot of talking, ranging from mildly interesting to about 9.85 on the Pointless & Lethally Boring Scale.  :walled:

We debated leaving early, but I'm so glad we stayed, at the end Sibongile Khumalo sang 2 songs. Despite the poor sound engineering and half-dead crowd, she was amazing. The presence to take charge of an audience and the ability to convey such feeling and emotion using just her voice is something I don't think you can be taught. A true artist.  :notworthy:

Well that's the thing, I don't like opera.  I don't really understand it and have never sat through a full proper one. But I do like opera singers it seems. On the weekend we were at One Fox. The Gauteng Opera did a show that included some probably well known opera songs.  And popular ones from the likes of Johnny Clegg and Bright Blue.  I was moved to tears, it's unlike any other performances I've seen

Not really an opera fan either,but Yende I can listen to.

And yes,Sibongile is imo our biggest Jazz Diva. She can also do opera.

Loki Rothman too,is an exceptional talent. Seen him togetha with Albert and it was just awesome!!!  :notworthy:

I agree - Pretty Yende has an incredible voice. Heard her at Starlight Classics a year ago.

 :???:  In Durban?  ...Only older people in Durban would remember it was the Alhambra Theatre.
