Women’s Day live stream

Afro-fusion band Coda Africa will perform via live stream on Sunday August 9, at 7pm Fronted by powerful vocalist Zami Mdingi, Coda Africa combines electric strings by Renate Riedemann and Carol Thorns with saxophonist Judy Brown and DJ LuvChild. Their signature ensemble traverses different genres from classically-inspired ballads to electro-swing, dub step, reggae and hip hop. Electric cellist Carol Thorns says: “ This concert is special for me because I haven’t seen these amazing women for many months. We miss making music together. We miss our friendships. We miss being able to work again in an industry that has been obliterated. For this concert we celebrate the strong women of South Africa. This year has been tough for everyone and we hope to lift everyone out of their lockdown blues for 35 minutes of musical joy and connection! We are opening the concert with a cello performance in The Bubble.” Coda Africa’s album, “Disclosure”, was nominated for 2 All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) for “Most Promising Artiste in Africa”, and “Best African-Electro Act” alongside Goldfish and Mi Casa. Tickets are R70 at Quicket.
