The Standard Bank Luju Food & Lifestyle Festival, after it’s hugely successful inaugural edition, will return this year on August 3rd with a diverse and uniquely curated program that focuses on regional flavours, tastes and trends.

 

Set on the lavish lawns of the House on Fire Sculpture Garden against a breath-taking backdrop of endless cane fields and rolling hills in Eswatini, just a four-hour drive from Johannesburg at the home of the MTN Bushfire Festival, this is a not-to-be missed event for any food enthusiasts, culture buffs and travellers.

 

With the global culinary sensation Siba Mtongana already announced as the headliner for the exciting and interactive culinary program, a range of additional activations and engagements have also been confirmed.

 

 

Sustainable and Local

Returning to Luju for the second year will be the much-loved Ultimate Braai Master Pete Goffe-Wood, who will host an interactive and collaborative activation in partnership with Malandela’s Restaurant.

A world-renowned chef, a judge of MasterChef and founder of Kitchen Cowboys, Pete will once again host the hugely popular Kids Kitchen at the festival.

Another uniquely African perspective will be presented by heritage specialist Bob Forrester, who will share his insights on traditional healing and the holistic approach of local healers, known as sangomas.  Guests can attend this fascinating talk and also have a healing session with an experienced local sangoma.

 

Luju means honey – and this year, local honey producer and bee expert Sibusiso Dlamini, from Bulembu Honey, will present an informative overview on the history and current plight of the African honey bee. Global food security is directly dependent on bees, and yet pests, disease, and pesticides are threatening their very existence.

 

Local honey production and the protection of the honey bee have been identified as essential to community development, as well sustainable farming and job creation within Eswatini.

The Standard Bank Luju Food & Lifestyle Festival is also excited to host the fresh-produceEkuphileni Market, as well as PELUM Swaziland at this year’s event. PELUM is a network of non-governmental organizations that strive to conserve the environment and actively promote sustainable agriculture practices.

 

PELUM will be at Luju to share the progress on their first urban garden being created in the capital city of Mbabane, which will be used as an Agroecology training and demonstration centre that can also serve a multitude of other purposes. Demonstrations will include dry sanitation, rainwater harvesting, indigenous nurseries, natural material construction and composting, amongst others.

 

The Moya Centre, an organization that aims to strengthen the future of Swaziland through the nurture of children, is a well-established safe space for orphaned and vulnerable children in the Mahlanya community. Along with NOSH Food Rescue NPC (NOSH), which aims to reduce food insecurity by diverting, repurposing, and redistributing prepared and perishable surplus food, Moya will host a Kids Corner activation focused on recycling and food security.

Through fun and interactive games and cooking demonstrations, children will have the chance to learn about the various recycling categories, such as waste, recyclables (paper, plastic, metal), biodegradable, and compostable.

Additionally, Hanneke von Linge from NOSH will be speaking about various other elements of NOSH programming such as moving from food provision to food promotion, and on to food production, and the importance of this to sustaining healthy communities in the long term.

To accompany the various food activations, Luju will be offering an array of drinks spaces and activations. The Drinks Promenade, at the centre of the Luju gardens, is our new adventure within an adventure, that will allow guests to journey through the Luju gardens while experiencing exclusive wines, whiskeys, craft beers and gins from a selection of our new beverage partners.

Sway the Night Away

In addition to the full array of food and lifestyle activities taking place across the Luju landscape, The Standard Bank Luju Main Stage will feature an inspired array of jazz, afro-pop, blues, a cappella and much more, showcasing high-profile acts from the region and beyond.

The Standard Bank Luju Festival is excited to confirm the legendary Bongo Maffin from South Africa as a headline act who will take to the stage on Saturday night.

Additional confirmed acts include The Muses, the four glamorous and gorgeous classically trained musicians who transform popular and contemporary music with violin and cello.

Also featuring are Eswatini’s Amanda Mo – MTN SWAMA Best Afro Pop Artist 2018 – and Mozambique’s Ghorwane, who continue to be one of the biggest musical groups in the country. South Africa’s The GrazRoots Project is the musical embodiment of the Luju theme as it sets out to re-connect us with our South African Musical Heritage.

This is closely aligned to MCG’s ambitions of creating an enabling environment for the development of talent that will continue Africa’s rich storytelling heritage. MCG is deliberate in its investment in local content and talent development, creating authentic stories that resonate with its consumers across the African continent.

 

 

“Our investment not only creates a future talent pipeline that is critical to the future of the video entertainment industry, but also places South African arts on a world stage,” adds Phahle. “The NAF fosters and encourages authentic content creation, by our people, for our continent.”

 

 

As Africa’s most loved storyteller, MultiChoice Group (MCG) is showcasing how it crafts amazing stories through local content and talent development, supported by state-of-the-art technology.

Throughout the festival, The Voice Chair from M-Net’s popular reality television singing competition, will be around the theatre and cinema for festival goers to have an enjoyable interactive experience. A virtual reality (VR) space has also established as part of the festival’s digital lounge, allowing guests to experience MCG’s world in virtual reality.

 

 

“We are pleased to have found a place as a partner of the National Arts Festival, not just because our objectives for developing local talent are aligned, but because we share a commitment to enriching lives,” concludes Phahle.

Apple today announced Up Next Live, a series of intimate performances from past and present Apple Music Up Next artists including Bad Bunny, Daniel Caesar, Khalid, Ashley McBryde, King Princess, Lewis Capaldi and Jessie Reyez. Each artist will perform for fans in one city, for one night only.
Apple Music Up Next is a monthly programme showcasing the best new artists in the world. Each month, Apple Music tastemakers and editors identify one artist to feature, then utilise the power of the platform to raise awareness of that artist to Apple Music’s growing audience of music fans. Apple Music Up Next also includes a deeply curated companion playlist  full of incredible new artists across genres from all over the world.
Each artist on the diverse Up Next Live roster has been featured as an Apple Music Up Next artist in the monthly programme or through the playlist. All shows will be hosted after hours in local Apple stores in Milan, San Francisco, Brooklyn, Paris, London, Chicago and Washington, D.C. Apple stores frequently offer free creative sessions through Today at Apple and serve as the place where the local creative community can come together and share ideas, making them the perfect backdrop for Up Next Live. Performances kick off July 9 with global sensation Bad Bunny at Apple Piazza Liberty in Milan.
“The impact [of being part of Up Next] can be seen in everything, in numbers, in plays, in shows,” said Bad Bunny. “There are a lot of fans that, when I go out in the street in the US, people who do not speak Spanish, I think they will not know me and they stop me, they ask me for pictures and they sing my songs. It helped me very much to make myself known in a market different from mine, not only the USA, but in places where Spanish is not spoken or where perhaps Latin music does not dominate, exposing my music and giving people the opportunity to get to know what I do.”
Up Next Live schedule:
July 9 — Bad Bunny at Apple Piazza Liberty, Milan
July 19 — Jessie Reyez at Apple Union Square, San Francisco

Today, at the 2019 Banff World Media Festival, Netflix joined imagineNATIVE, The Indigenous Screen Office (ISO) and Wapikoni Mobile to announce a suite of partnership programs that aim to develop the next generation of Indigenous creators across Canada. These programs range from screenwriting intensives to apprenticeship programs, joining the 11 existing partnership programs Netflix has funded to nurture the next generation of Canadian creators from underrepresented communities.

 

“Indigenous communities in Canada are rich with unique stories, and organizations like imagineNATIVE, The Indigenous Screen Office (ISO) and Wapikoni Mobile are vital to ensuring these voices are heard,” said Stéphane Cardin, Director of Public Policy, Netflix Canada. “Netflix is proud to help launch these three programs, which will reach Indigenous communities across the country.”

 

 

imagineNATIVE

The game-changing Netflix-imagineNATIVE partnership will demonstrate an unprecedented level of support for Indigenous filmmakers in Canada, who have urgent needs for professional development programming designed from Indigenous perspectives and delivered within Indigenous contexts by an Indigenous-run organization. Over the next three-and-a-half years, imagineNATIVE will undertake or expand six distinct activities aimed at Indigenous screenwriters, directors and producers through its Institute department:

  • Indigenous Producers Lab
  • Indigenous Directors Lab
  • Indigenous Screenwriting Intensive
  • ‘imagineNATIVE Originals’ Mentorship Commissions
  • Original Storytellers Series Incubator
  • Festival Industry Days & Year-Round Institute Series.

 

“We are thrilled to partner with Netflix to offer an unprecedented series of professional development initiatives at imagineNATIVE,” says Jason Ryle, executive director of imagineNATIVE. “This funding is a significant investment in opportunities for Indigenous directors, producers, and screenwriters in Canada, and marks one of the largest sponsorships in imagineNATIVE’s history.”

 

 

 

The Indigenous Screen Office (ISO)

The ISO-Netflix Production Mentorship and Apprenticeship Program will provide second phase support for Indigenous projects that may have received development support through other programs such as those offered by imagineNATIVE Institute, Hot Docs, Banff World Media Festival, or Whistler Film Festival, as well as others. The Program will include two streams: Key Creative Apprenticeships and Cultural Mentorships for directors, producers, screenwriters and showrunners.

 

“ISO spent the last year in consultations with Indigenous creators and this fund responds to their expressed need for new funding opportunities that will advance work and career opportunities, as well as allow them to follow protocols and practices that are central to Indigenous ways of working,” says Jesse Wente, director of the Indigenous Screen Office.

 

 

Wapikoni Mobile

Mentoring and coaching are at the heart of the unique Wapikoni Mobile development experience, and increased accessibility of tools, spaces and trainers are offered through the mobility of its studios. Wapikoni’s approach is centered around the belief that it is essential for the next generation to be inspired by the success of their community. With this new partnership, Wapikoni will be able to coordinate its important collective of emerging filmmakers, organize the numerous opportunities, and structure a program of both continuing education and professional coaching which will have a profound and lasting impact on the next generation of Indigenous creators.

 

 

 

 

At the centre of Wapikoni’s priorities is the intent to highlight a significant collection of audiovisual works and an immeasurable cultural heritage of artistic expression and Indigenous identity while promoting:

  • Mediation, dialogue
  • Awareness, education
  • Building bridges between Nations, Peoples and generations.

 

“At Wapikoni, we believe that many young Indigenous artists are isolated from opportunity. When travelling to them locally to offer tools and resources to create short films, we discovered that this journey also leads to supporting the development of talented, emerging filmmakers. Learning from the creative process is at the heart of important social transformations, especially in terms of personal growth, community development, community involvement. We are proud to support the emergence of unique artistic and cultural signatures which will have an invaluable contribution to new audiovisual productions,” explains Odile Joannette, from the Pessamit First Nation of Quebec, and executive director at Wapikoni. “The support from Netflix will allow us to continue to foster narrative sovereignty and cinematographic excellence, and we are absolutely thrilled to count Netflix as a partner, not only for our organization, but also for the voices of Indigenous youth,” she added.

 

 

Netflix’s support of these programs comes from its fund to develop the next generation of Canadian creators and talent, focused on underrepresented communities in the screen industry. This announcement marks the 12th, 13th and 14th partnerships since the fund was announced in September 2017. Other recent announcements in 2019 include partnerships with the Inside Out Film Festival, RIDM (Rencontres internationales du documentaire de Montréal), and the Alliance des producteurs francophones du Canada (APFC).
