Getting to know Mafikizolo

With Friday’s Oude Meester "Ekurhuleni Comes Alive" Jazz Evening completely sold out, there is little left for lucky ticket holders to do but spend more time getting to know the headlining act, Mafikizolo, as well as supporting artists Mankie Makopa, Throwback and Thapang ER. After all, it just won’t do for you to not sing along when the time comes! Mafikizolo aren’t newcomers to the local music scene – they are just returning from a two year break with their seventh album, called Six Mabone - a classic car of the 60s. This should give you a hit of the bluesy big band hits performed by the band – all, of course, with a vibrant African twist. Not only do does the band sing the part, but they dress the part too. With suspenders and pearls in abundance, you can look forward to trip back in time this Friday. Until then, here are some songs to tide you over!
