It’s winter, but it’s warm in Durbs… the Old Mutual Music at the Lake concert on Sunday, 19 July 2015, featuring Prime Circle, is the perfect occasion to soak up the balmy winter sun at the Durban Botanic Gardens.
The Witbank rockers will be supported on the day by the equally sizzling Johannesburg indie rock band Shortstraw.

These regular open-air picnic concerts have become a popular local drawcard, enabling Durbanites to enjoy their city’s beautiful indigenous gardens while experiencing some high-calibre homegrown vibes from the country’s premier music acts.

 

 

PRIMECIRCLE_3_ph_Alex_Ruffini_All_Rights_Reserved_2014And Prime Circle certainly fit that description. In addition to topping charts, releasing six studio albums and winning multiple awards, they are regarded as one of South Africa’s most electrifying live acts.

 

 

Members Ross Learmonth (guitar and vocals), Marco Gomes (bass), Dale Schnettler (drums), Neil Breytenbach (keyboards) and Dirk Bisschoff (guitar) deliver high-octane performances crammed with the many hits they have amassed over a career spanning an incredible 14 years – one that shows no signs of slowing down.

In recent years Prime Circle have been honing their live sound during multi-date tours of Europe and the United Kingdom, as well as a high-tech arena tour of South Africa. They recently won a South African Music Award (for best music video) for the single Doors off their sixth studio album, Let the Night In.

 

Says Old Mutual sponsorship manager Bandile Mngoma: “We are thrilled to be welcoming Prime Circle to the botanical gardens. They have earned their stripes as South Africa’s leading rock act, and continue coming up with new and exciting soundscapes to keep their fans hooked and reel in new ones. Coupled with the energy and verve of Shortstraw, Durban is going to rock!”
Five-piece outfit Shortstraw – consisting of Alastair Thomas (lead vocals and guitar), Tom Revington (lead guitar), Gad de Combes (keyboard and backing vocals), Russell Grant (bass) and Jake Rubinstein (drums) – are fast building an avid fan base as one of the country’s leading indie (or, as they term it, “indie-bele”) rock acts.

 

 

With a number one album (Youthless) in 2015, and having won two MK awards for best album and best music video in 2014, they are rocking the local indie scene in a big way with their simple melodies, catchy rhythms and sharp lyrics. Most importantly, Shortstraw are known for getting any crowd up on their feet and dancing!

 

 

The Old Mutual Music at the Lake concert is likely to be one of the hottest tickets in Durban this winter, so be sure to book your tickets early. Bring cooler boxes, picnic baskets and blankets, or buy refreshments at the venue. Children will be kept entertained by the great activities at the Kidszone, while having the picturesque expanse of the botanical gardens at their disposal.

 

 

Gates open at 12h00 for pre-sold tickets (R140 for adults, available through www.webtickets.co.za) and at 12h30 for on-the-day ticket sales (R160). Children aged eight to 12 pay R60; under-eights get in free. Shortstraw take to the stage at 13h30, followed by Prime Circle at 15h00.

Last week, SAMRO Foundation administrators and a distinguished panel of adjudicators completed an intensive selection process – narrowing a pool of 35 applicants to 12 semi-finalists. On 27 August these talented South African vocalists, six in Western Art (“classical”) music and six in Jazz, will compete live during the intermediate round of the Foundation’s annual Overseas Scholarships Competition. One singer in each category will claim the ultimate prize: a R170 000 study award and the opportunity to accelerate their journey towards artistic and creative excellence.

 

 
The SAMRO Overseas Scholarships Competition has evolved much over 53 years. This evolution has followed South Africa’s compelling journey towards a unique cultural identity that reflects our history, our struggles, triumphs and visibility on the global stage.

 

 

samrofo

“We are now starting to hear a truly South African sound” notes Andre Le Roux, Managing Director of the SAMRO Foundation. This year, SAMRO Foundation administrators and adjudicators took note of and were impressed by several candidates who chose South African compositions for their competition repertoire. Compared to previous years, “there seems to be increased appreciation of South African composition. For us as a Foundation within Africa’s largest music rights organisation and composers’ society, this is proof that we’re doing impactful work to preserve our rich heritage and shape the new inclusive voice of our country.”

 

 

 

 

All 12 semi-finalists are between 22 and 30 years of age (average age 25) and are pursuing their passion as top achievers in the music world. Many have already honed their musical prowess as professional performers.

 

 

 

This year’s top six in the Jazz music category are:
Ms Amy Campbell (UCT) 
Ms Mikhaela Kruger (UCT) 
Ms Palesa Modiga (UCT)
Ms Nelmarie Rabie (TUT and UP)
Mr Kwena Ramahuta (UKZN) 
Ms Amy Walton (UCT)

The Western Art music category’s semi-finalists are:
Mr Khanyiso Gwenxane (TUT and UCT) 
Ms Andiswa Makana (TUT) 
Ms Nombuso Ndlandla (NWU) 
Mr Levy Sekgapane (UCT) 
Mr Makudupanyane Senaoana (UCT) 
Ms Victoria Stevens (UCT) 

Four finalists – two in each category – will compete for top prizes on 29 August at the Linder Auditorium. This thrilling final round is open to the public, features live accompaniment, special guests and performances of a selection of musical works including a South African composition specially commissioned for the occasion.

The SAMRO Overseas Scholarship Competition rotates every year between awards for vocalists (2011, 2015), instrumentalists (2012, 2016), keyboard players (2013, 2017) and composers (2014, 2018). At least three SAMRO Overseas Scholarship winners have been recognised as Standard Bank Young Artist Award recipients, and countless others have gone on to pursue successful professional careers as internationally renowned Western Art and Jazz musicians. Each year, candidate submissions are evaluated by a panel of adjudicators appointed from the top echelons of music academia and practice.

The Fête de la Musique in Johannesburg is back!

feteEstablished itself as one of the fastest growing festival brands in South Africa, the festival drew 5 000 people in 2012, 8 000 people in 2013 and 10 000 people in 2014.

This year the event promises to be bigger and better as it moves to its new home at Newtown Junction in the heart of downtown Jo’burg.

The Bassline, The Market Theatre, Artist Proof Studios, The Dance Corner, The Photo Lab, Sci Bono Centre and others organisations will participate in this annual and uniquely FREE celebration of music and culture.

 

The 4th edition of Fête de La Musique promotes musical diversity and showcases a broad mix of music ranging from pop, rock, hip-hop, jazz, traditional and even to brass band music. Some of the international musical line-up festival goers can expect on the day include:

 

Jaojoby (Madagascar) is commonly recognised as the most popular singer in Madagascar and the Indian Ocean islands. Widely referred to as the “King of Salegy” , the grooviest and most popular music genre of the island. His success has earned him such honours as Artist of the Year in Madagascar (1998–1999) and the role of Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Population Fund in 1999.

 

Benjamin Piat (France) presents his very personal Chanson Française, mixing up touching lyrics, captivating melodies and lively beats.

Grèn Sémé (France/Reunion Island) succeeds in bringing their ‘Maloya’ sounds far beyond Reunion Island’s borders. Their music, deeply rooted in tradition, explores new horizons and new sounds. In this laboratory comes to life a mix of singing and experimentation, between blues and joy, rebellion and tenderness, that they call “evolutive maloya”.

 

Fete de la Musique is thrilled to announce the following South African acts will be performing alongside the three amazing international artists already confirmed by festival organisers.

This is translated through the music as the group will perform favourites old and familiar Sunday school hymns that fans know and love from years back but this time they will have a new feel or the “Joyous injection” as well as new compositions which our fans love and have been enjoying for the past 19 years.” says Jabu Hlongwane.

Its Middelsburg’s turn says C4U

Career Expo: Come explore and interact with TOP tertiary institutions, companies and prospective employers

 

The prospect of a career choice is an issue that touches every young learner, organization, community and our economy profoundly. As is, the majority of our learners spend more time deciding what cars, phone, and clothes to buy than choosing a career. Could this be that career decision making is hard work or that our learners have difficult time accessing information about tertiary studies and career options available? If our learners make informed choices they are less likely to experience some of the consequences of poor choices or ineffective career guidance such as tertiary institutions drop out, late tertiary applications, unemployable youth market, completing a degree that one has no interest in, indecisive labour force market or unhappy workforce.

c4u1

In order to help facilitate our young learners’ transition to tertiary and to the working world, Careers For A Powerful You Pty Ltd (C4U) has, since the beginning of the year, embarked on a journey throughout townships and rural areas in South Africa and now going to Middelburg in the Mpumalanga province to create a platform where our young learners access resources, opportunities, and sound advice from professionals to unlock their full potential and make informed decisions about their career path.

 

For our young learners – the Career expo is a platform to meet and interact with a wide variety of organizations in one location, in one day. This interaction allows them to tap into opportunities available within these organizations. Also, it is a platform where learners are proactive and search for solutions with regard to careers and challenges they currently face. Our core focus is to encourage innovation and creativity and produce sustainable development within our economy and community. We have identified the following as challenges that lie ahead for our learners: admissions, financial aid, earning extra income, opportunity identification, unemployment, how to start up a business, sound advice and questions about their future. Copyright reserved

c4u2

For our exhibitors – the career expo is a vibrant and revitalized platform for the public and the private sectors to profile themselves as employers of choice. This is an opportunity to meet with learners from various schools in and around Middelburg. It also presents an unmatched opportunity for talent finders to promote their organisations and compete for the best available pool of talent and connect directly with potential employees, bursary recipients, provide employment and career information.

 

 

C4U is a member of the Shanduka Black Umbrellas programme which is an initiative to support and mentor black entrepreneurs to build sustainable businesses.

As a mobile career consulting firm, we specialize in career development within township and rural areas. This is done through educational and career events, publications and CSI Projects. Our mission is to empower our ‘future leaders’ in rural and township areas and to ensure equal access of information and resources. We connect young learners with educators, marketers, companies and mentors to create quality career and learning exposure.
