LYRICS STILL MATTER is Coming To The Toyota Stellenbosch University Woordfees
Following a sold-out run at the Artscape Theatre and playing to a full house at the iconic Cape Town Comedy Club at the V&A Waterfront, this uniquely South African production is back with the same stellar cast and an all-new collection of songs and stories.
Two vocal artists share how music and lyrics have shaped their experiences of growing up in the diverse city of Cape Town, as well as how their art was influenced by the culture around them.
Ghoema award-winning Hip Hop soul singer & rapper Jerome Rex and singer-songwriter Nadine Matthews will have you enthralled as they musically share their journeys. The show is woven together by a range of familiar songs, as well as the pair's own original mate-rial. This includes a combination of RnB, dance, smooth jazz and Afrikaans hip hop. Themes of identity and community pride are explored through the lyrics of songs with the back-ing of a 4-piece band and two backing vocalists.
Look out for guest appearances by acclaimed flamenco dancer Demi Johnson and saxophonist Lee Hoffmann, all hosted by our MC, Garden Route native and award-winning rapper Jason "Hakkiesdraad" Hartman. Lyrics Still Matter shows at the Drostdy Theatre in Stellenbosch on Monday 9 March and Saturday 14 March 2019 and tickets are available from Computicket. (www.computicket.com)
