A Letter To Azania by Thandiswa Mazwai At The Lyric Theatre

For over 20 years Thandiswa Mazwai has been one of the most influential South African Musicians of this generation, and on the 24th of November she will present a powerful live show entitled A Letter To Azania at Johannesburg’s Lyric Theatre. 
In this show Thandiswa is set to use her music to weave the threads that illustrate her early politicization and her visions of a place called Azania. With A Letter To Azania she engages the idea that freedom is a restless place and that we have not reached Azania.
On the 24th of November at Gold Reef City’s famed The Lyric Theatre “I will reveal intimate details of my childhood and my search for Azania and what it has come to mean” says Thandiswa who is both “Nervous and excited because I have never done a show so personal.” She believes her fans “Know that I get very spiritual in my work, but in this show there will be an intimacy that I have never explored before.”
In this audio visual experience curated by KingThaLive in collaboration with Blac…

For designer Gert-Johan Coetzee, taking the economy in his stride – even poking gentle fun at money worries –  is a business challenge that he is relishing. In his new Autumn Winter 2019 Collection that is showcasing at SA Fashion Week, the focus is on more affordable ready to wear, but also a brand-new line of menswear, including underwear and swimwear.

“There might be economic reasons to be gloomy, but there is no time like a downturn to really sharpen your focus and identify the things that are most important in your business...and the reality is that people still want to feel good, and look good, even when their budget shrinks,” said Coetzee. “With this collection we have thought carefull…
