CITY HALL SESSIONS launches its 2012 season on Tuesday 20 March, hosting Senegal’s Ismaël Lô at the Cape Town City Hall. Joining the bill is the Azania Ghetto Sound band, the internationally active reggae group from Nyanga, Cape Town.
With the Human Rights public holiday the next day, each performer has chosen a composition which they believe acknowledges the importance of the Human Rights we have won, or maybe, have yet to attain in the world. Between sets, DJ Jumbo Vanrenen will serve up a selection of mostly African and reggae tracks, including many “human rights and struggle anthems” from his extensive collection.
City Hall Sessions staged acclaimed debut concerts in September 2011, which featured Thandiswa Mazwai, Kesivan and the Lights, and the visiting piano-guitar duo of Ray Lema (France/DR Congo) with Chico Cesar ( Brazil ).
Tickets for this show are priced at R75 (unreserved) and R120 (reserved seating upstairs), and are available from Computicket commencing 07 March.
The concert starts at 8pm at the Cape Town City Hall.
2012 will see further City Hall Sessions in July and September.
