31 MAY 2019 - 31 MAY 2019

On the 31st May 2019 East London will also share in the spoils of the preservation of this uniquely and proudly South African music with songs like Khwela and Mbube from the bows and strings of these fathers of our nation. The programme will include performances, workshops, family photos, autographs and lots of anecdotes from the wonderful travels of this distinguished ensemble. Blurring the lines between the binaries of genres such as classical and jazz, the SSQ songbook has something for everyone. And this time they will remind us once again of the beautiful country we inhabit and inspire us to remain committed to the pursuit of that South Africa we all deserve. TICKETS AVAILABLE FROM COMPUTICKET AT R160
