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.

“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.

 

Various stakeholders from the greater Newtown Cultural Precinct area will be involved in multiple live performances and programming activities spread throughout the day, and all come together at the exciting Newtown Junction precinct. 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. After performing more than 300 gigs, and winning an award at the “Chant’ Appart” Festival, Benjamin Piat is proud to present his brand new record “Boîte à Musique” with his debut South African show.

 

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.

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.

Remembering Dolly Rathebe

Posted by radio On June - 8 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

Singer and model Dolly Rathebe was one of South Africa’s great jazz and blues artists, her voice inspired a generation of music lovers. Now her life is being celebrated by young South African. Taynita Harilal, a Grade 12 learner at Parktown High School for Girls was so inspired by Rathebe’s life, talent and her ground breaking contribution to South Africa music that she has set out to remember her in ways that will both her honour her memory and her family.

 

 
dolly2Using a history project as her starting point, Harilal is using social media to raise awareness about the life, times and music of Dolly Rathebe. During her research Harilal discovered that while Dolly Rathebe may have died a legend, there was never enough money to raise a tombstone in memory of her. Harilal now hopes to take the project further by raising funds that will go towards erecting a tombstone in her honour.

 

 

Harilal kicked off the project by consulting Dolly Rathebe’s peers. Abigail Khubeka a life long friend was the catalyst in advancing the conversation of possibilities to support  legacy building through  the project. She highly urged Harilal to continue efforts started years ago to solicit support for the legacy project beyond the school room and assist the family to finally make the tombstone a reality in celebrating the legacy of Dolly Rathebe.

 

 

Inspired by Harilal’s efforts, Lethabo Nyathi, a young designer, has added her support by donating a design based on Ntiski Duru’s (Dolly Rathebe’s only surviving child) preference for the artwork. Jessica Mbangeni has also stepped forward to assist the family in raising funds. ‘The opportunity right now is to ensure we continue to work in collectives to see how we can reach the financial support that can allow us to complete this project” says Harilal.

 

 

Photographer and filmmaker Jurgen Schadeberg who is well known for his iconic images of Rathebe, along with his wife Claudia are looking to join Harilal in keeping the memories of Rathebe and other jazz greats alive. They hope to erect iconic portraits of these music legends on the streets in Newtown that now bear their names and Harilal is hoping to create a platform and conversations on how this project can become a reality.

Apartheid left many talented musicians in the shadows and by honouring Rathebe in this way, we start a conversation that is important in rewriting a more inclusive history of the country’s diverse cultural landscape. Both projects are seeking the funding necessary to realise them.

 

 

“This project has shown me that we can all become active citizens and use our networks and our voices to build our country’s legacy and make a difference.” says Harilal. ‘While my school project is now complete I am hoping this call for assistance will encourage South African business and interested persons who are able to assist with contributing to the tombstone will step up and offer a solution where the legacy project can become a reality and where we can support nation building.

To contact Taynita Harilal or the Duru Family, please write to media@JTComms.co.za or call 011 788 7832 or write to tshepoduru@gmail.com (Dolly Rathebe’s grandson) who is launching the Dolly Rathebe Foundation.

This June Heart FM will not only celebrate but get in touch with the youth of the Western Cape to make a real difference. On Monday 1 June, the station kicked off its #HeartBeats4Youth campaign which aims to touch the lives of individuals one-on-one.

HFM_HB4U _LR-6408

This campaign was launched two years ago to motivate and inspire youth by going into schools and spreading messages of hope.

 

In the lead up to June 16th 2015, commemorated in South Africa as Youth Day, Heart FM will be active in various communities to bring change where needed. #HeartBeats4Youth aims to bring something special to the young people of the Cape where often there seems to be no hope.

 

On Monday 01 June 2015, the campaign kicked off with Suga (host) and Keri Miller (traffic) from the afternoon drive show #Drive326 fulfilling the wish of 14-year old Omar Matthews, a Leukaemia sufferer from Manenberg whose dream was to fly in a helicopter.  Although a small gesture from the station, the event was a life changing experience for Omar.

 

Activities over the next two weeks will range from fulfilling the dreams of young people, sport development in various communities, supporting feeding schemes and getting involved in literacy projects amongst others. Celebrities who are lending their support to the campaign include SA cricketer JP Duminy and singer Jimmy Nevis, who are both very active in their respective communities. The two will feature as guests on the #MyCapeTown hour on Sunday the 7th and 14th of June.

 

Stay tuned to Heart FM to feel these moments as we make a difference.
