Posted by radio On October - 8 - 2014

The SABC has re-affirmed its media partnership with The South African Traditional Music Achievement (SATMA) Awards due to take place at the University of Fort Hare in Alice, Eastern Cape on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th October 2014. The theme this year is my “Freedom is My Heritage” which coincides with the 20th anniversary of South Africa’s democracy.

 

 

This year again the SATMA’s  have been split into two days on Friday the event will host 99% Indigenous Comedy Show and the main music awards ceremony on Saturday evening.

 

SABC’s spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago says,” As the country’s only public service broadcaster, the SABC continuously strives to empower the local music industry through its 18 Radio Stations and 3 TV channels. Music be it traditional, Jazz, Gospel, Choral Music or any genre plays a crucial role in the promotion of the culture of South Africa’s people.  The SATMA Awards offers an opportunity to the SABC to continue  showcasing  the countries   music cultural diversity.  Music occupies a central place in the SABC’s programming”.

 

 

The SATMA Awards Founder Dr. Dumisani Goba promised that the SATMA Awards will continue to honour and preserve South Africa’s culture and heritage through its support of the arts. He commented, “the support of our Heritage still doesn’t receive the financial support that it requires or deserves. Musicians should be living the same profile and financial lives as their sporting counter parts such as soccer stars”. He further challenged government and associated Arts and culture departments to put their financial muscles behind programs that support the upliftment of Traditional Music in its support of Culture and Heritage.
