BASSLINE LIVE Presents THANDISWA MAZWAI LIVE at the Lyric Theatre
In the season finale to a massively exciting and almost completely sold-out star-studded 2019 series, Bassline Live presents, in partnership with Radio2000,Thandiswa Mazwai LIVE at The Lyric Theatre, Gold Reef City, Saturday 30th November 2019.
The Bassline and Thandiswa have a long and memorable relationship so it is perfectly apt that Thandiswa should close out the 2019 series in this the Bassline’s 25th anniversary year.
Fans are urged to book tickets soon as 3 of the last 4 Bassline Live events this year have SOLD OUT well in advance.
Hot off a host of international tour dates, Thandiswa Mazwai needs no introduction to most SA music fans with a legion of devoted fans and a host of accolades to her name.
Thandiswa Mazwai is an award winning South African musician whose career spans over 25yrs. She was part of the vanguard movement that created a post-apartheid dance music genre called Kwaito and over the years has cemented herself as an indelible part of the cultural landscape of South Africa with several award winning solo albums which includes her magnum opus “Zabalaza” released in 2004 and awarded the “album of the decade of freedom” by the Pan South African language board.
In 2016 she released “Belede” a South African songbook in honour of, what can be considered the golden era of South African music with legends like, Miriam Makeba and Hugh Masekela at the helm, as well as her personal relationships with these great friends and mentors.
Thandiswa has returned to NYC three times this year with Salon Africana at the Africa Centre in March 2019, AFROPUNK with her long standing Afro-funk band in August 2019. As part of the Carnegie Hall Citywide Festival she appeared at The Schomburg in Oct 2019. Still in October, Thandiswa performed down under in Australia, for the first time ever, in the Redbull Music Festival supporting Sampa The Great’s new album launch.
The show starts 8pm at The Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City on Saturday November 30th. Tickets are available from Computicket starting at R250.
