Qadasi & Maqhinga Maskandi Folk Fusion Tour
Cape Town Music Academy is presenting the SAMA winning Qadasi & Maqhinga. The duo will be touring Cape Town in May 2022 with its Qadasi & Maqhinga Maskandi Folk Fusion Tour. Qadasi & Maqhinga will be playing at five venues: The House of Machines on May 11, Athletic Club & Social on May 12, Alliance Française du Cap on May 13, Cafe Roux Noordhoek on May 14 and Lumkile’s Book Joint NY 22, Gugulethu, on May 15, 2022. Cape Town Music Academy (CTMA) is a not-for-profit company working to create performance opportunities for local musicians. It is wonderful that CTMA is facilitating this tour, during Covid, as live performance revives. I saw Qadasi & Maqhinga, in concert, before the pandemic, at Café Roux in Noordhoek. They make captivating music and strike up a wonderful rapport with the audience. Info and direct booking links in box, above. Info as supplied:
