Lira to headline Africa Day Celebration Concert

Posted by radio On May - 13 - 2013

Bassline in Newtown, Johannesburg, is proud to announce the line-up for its ninth annual Africa Day Concert held over two exciting nights on 24 and 25 May. 25 May is celebrated worldwide as Africa Day.

This year, the concerts will move from Mary Fitzgerald Square, which has historically been the hosting venue, to The Bassline venue itself – a venue long regarded as the heart of African music in Johannesburg.

 

The Bassline Africa Day Concert is a celebration of music from across the continent on the day that promotes unity and solidarity as well as Africa’s vibrancy, dynamism and the global need for Africans to embrace their collective identity. It is a day for all Africans to rejoice in their uniquely rich heritage.

 

Over the past nine years, The Bassline has brought some of the most diverse sounds to Johannesburg in celebration of this event. This year’s eclectic mix of genres features acts from Niger, Zimbabwe, Cameroon, Nigeria and South Africa.

 

The line-up is as follows:

Friday, 24 May
Tanga Pasi – Zimbabwe (brought by ProHelvetia)
Della & Friends – Cameroon
Olufemi – Nigeria
Headline Act: Lira – South Africa

 

Saturday, 25 May
