Mbuso Khoza Returns To The State Theatre With Folklore Concert


Heritage enthusiasts and curious music lovers are set for a treat as versatile songbird and heritage practitioner, Mbuso Khoza returns to the State Theatre for a two-day spectacle that is part of his Folktour.

Khoza says this offering is a special way to promote traditional music (Amahubo) and indigenous story-telling using Jazz as a medium.

“We cannot afford to wait for a day in the calendar to commemorate our Heritage, it has to be a daily thing. We must speak about our languages, our philosophies, our way of thinking, and take pride in this. All this will be captured in the Folklore show to be held at the State Theatre on 30 & 31 October.”

“Heritage for me is an everyday delicacy, it excites me and that is what drives me to continue with my research and learning, and imparting the knowledge I gather with like-minded individuals and those with a curious mind wanting to find out more about their heritage, lineage, culture, language, and everything that makes us unique as a people,” he explains.

Bringing this music and story-telling to life, Khoza will be performing with Tlale Makhene on percussions, Bongani Masina on Bass, Gabriel Stuurman on Keys, Sam Ibe on drums and The Slash Horns. Nandi Mzobe will also be featured on the night.

Healing Music

Patrons can expect soothing sounds and melodies which are carefully intended to make a statement that music heals and that even though the world is still not out of the woods from this pandemic – we are alive and in music you can find solace, and with knowing and embracing your roots you are armed with the greatest weapon.

Patrons can purchase their tickets from webtickets as there will be no tickets sold at the door. All Covid-19 protocols will be adhered to, and the patrons can be assured that all safety measures will be in place.

“Let us enjoy this new way of life with respect. All patrons will be expected to wear their masks to the event and observe social distancing. Gauteng is in for a treat!” concludes Khoza.
