The President’s address will be broadcast live during the prime time programme, ‘Full View’ on SABC News Channel 404 and on terrestrial channel SABC 2. Following the President’s address, a post analysis of the speech will be broadcast live with experts and reaction from various political parties.

Globally renowned tech innovator and award-winning recording artist Imogen Heap, recognized for creative works including Hide and Seek and Tiny Human, has announced her first world tour in eight years, which will bring together content creators, fans and the industry in a unique and innovative format.

Charl Van Heyningen Enterprises is thrilled to announce the return of Imogen Heap to South Africa, since her last visit in 2011. Just off the back of her announcement that she will be touring North America in 2019, the Grammy Award Winning recording artist and technology innovator has added South Africa to her Mycelia World Tour.

 

Comprising of concerts, talks and workshops, the 40-city tour will be used as a platform to officially launch Mycelia’s ‘Creative Passport’ – realising a vision of the future which sees music makers connected through a verified and decentralised ecosystem, promoting artist-led, fair and sustainable operating practices.

 

Using emergent blockchain technology, the ‘Creative Passport’ – which is unique to each music maker and empowers them to be ‘open for business’ – contains personal information, existing IDs, acknowledgements, works and business partners. Featuring template ‘smart contracts’, it enables quick and easy direct payments to simplify and democratise collaboration from meaningful commercial partnerships to creativity.

 

On her Mycelia World Tour, as a woman of innovation and action, Heap will bring together content creators, fans and the industry in a unique and innovative format.

 

Events in each city will feature some or all of these elements:

 

  • Live concerts performed both solo by Imogen Heap and with Guy Sigsworth. Reuniting to play together for the first time since 2003 as electronic duo Frou Frou
  • Music maker workshops connecting the Mycelia tour with local music makers, technologists and industry influencers to profile the development of the ‘Creative Passport’
  • Family workshops which will include children building and coding their own MIni.MU Gloves
  • Talks at leading industry conferences where Imogen will speak on the technologies which are positively shaping the future of the music ecosystem, building better business and audience relations with music makers

 

Imogen shares: “For years now we’ve been complaining about the state of the music industry and how it has been held back by old ways of thinking, negatively impacting music makers – a major pain point being that we are the first to put in any of the work, and the last to see any financial reward or even payment. Through Mycelia and its ‘Creative Passport’, as music makers we now have no excuse but to put our best foot forward and become open for business, decentralising the ecosystem so that it will ultimately benefit everyone. I am excited to be going on the road to bring this to life, in addition to showcasing other new technologies which will add to transforming the music industry into a fair, flourishing and vibrant place”.

 

Promoter Charl Van Heyningen is thrilled to be bringing back Heap and states “Heap’s 2011 Ellipse World Tour was a huge success, and it feels right to bring this innovative artist back to South Africa at a time of change in the music and technology industries. She is at the forefront of music technology and there is no better way to start off a new year than on a positive note.”

 

Heap will be performing two shows in Cape Town at the Baxter Theatre on the 15th and 16th of March 2019 (Book tickets via Webtickets), and two shows in Johannesburg at The Teatro at Montecasino on the 19th and 20th of March (Book via Computicket). Tickets range between R400 – R890.

Celebrated SAMA nominated and award-winning Musician Zoè Modiga is coming to Soweto on the 15th December to stage a live show at the Eyethu Lifestyle Centre. This sultry songstress offers an exceptional entertainment experience as expressed in her debut album Yellow: The Novel.

This show follows a successful show at Afro Bru in Maboneng which sold out, hosting both industry colleagues and fans alike. Zoè is a phenomenal performer whose energy knows no bounds and her voice is as enchanting.

Known as the first black owned cinema founded in 1969, the space was home to the latest local films and celebrated the créme de la créme of black and international entertainment. Modiga will be echoing the stories from times before through her all encompassing expression of the human experience that was and continues to be.

 

“I am thrilled about the 15th, performing in Soweto is always next level for me. The love and support I get from all lovers of my music is mind-blowing. I have prepared a much different and even better set for Soweto and I can assure everyone that is coming that they will have a time of their lives.” Commented Zoè.

Bassline Live & Kaya FM Present TORTURED SOUL live at the Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City on the 15th of December 2018.

Considered one of the finest creators of soulful house music, Tortured Soul return to South Africa, due to popular demand, after a successful sold out show in 2017.

 

 

Director of Bassline Live, Brad Holmes is excited to be bringing this music group back to Johannesburg: “The response from last year’s show was mind blowing and so it was a non brainer for us to bring this incredibly talented music group back to our beautiful city. I cannot think of a better way to end the year.”

 

 

Tortured Soul is one of the world’s most groove-centred acts.  Influenced by the classic songcraft of Prince, Heatwave and Kool & The Gang, the members of Tortured Soul are three distinctive guys with three different backgrounds, united under a groove-centered rhythm.

 

 

With a sound reminiscent of neo-soul groups like Jamiroquai or Brand New Heavies, it is also deeply saturated in the contemporary freshness of house purveyors like Joey Negro, Kenny Dope, Soul Clap and Disclosure.

 

Led by frontman John-Christian Urich, Tortured Soul was quickly picked up by New York-based deep house label Central Park Recordings and the group was officially launched to the world.  Since then it has become a staple amongst DJ’s across the globe and has received major airplay, including a number 1 on Kaya FM.

 

‘Introducing Tortured Soul’, the debut album, was dubbed by legendary tastemaker Gilles Petersen as “the future of house music”.  The follow-up album, 2009’s ‘Did You Miss Me’, released on the band’s own label, TSTC Records, ushered in a new wave of critical acclaim from music publications like Blues and Soul, SoulBounce, and SoulTracks who described the album as “one immaculate danceable tune after another.”

 

 

With their most recent album, ‘Hot For Your Love Tonight’, burning up dance floors with songs like ‘I’ll Be There For You’ and the Deep House-flavoured ‘Don’t Lead Me On’, Tortured Soul shows no signs of stopping.

 

The band will be performing for one night only at the Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City on the 15th December 2018. The Show starts at 8pm and tickets are on sale at Computicket from R250.

Entries Open for 2019 Liberty Radio Awards

Posted by radio On November - 8 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

Liberty is pleased to announce that entries for the 2019 Liberty Radio Awards officially open on Monday 5 November 2018 and close on 25 January 2019. The Liberty Radio Awards is well established as an independent and transparent recognition programme that aims to recognise and award excellence in radio.

“By recognising those who create excellent radio content, we provide a measure for radio professionals to be evaluated against their peers,” says Lance Rothschild, CEO of the Liberty Radio Awards. “Through acknowledging excellence, we are securing the long-term sustainability of the industry as a credible source of information. The higher the quality of the content produced, the longer people will retain their relationship with a particular radio station”.

 

“For the 2019 Liberty Radio Awards programme, we are not introducing any new categories, however, following consultation with station management and personnel within the Public Broadcasting Services (PBS) stations, it was decided to separate PBS and commercial radio stations within the various categories. We will thus recognise and acknowledge excellence in the four main broadcast pillars of radio: Campus, Community, Commercial and PBS, as well as some awards for online radio.”

 

Killy Bacela, Divisional Director of Group Brand and Marketing at Liberty says; “The Liberty Radio Awards are in line with our ethos of partnering with our clients at different moments of their lives. Much like how radio uses insights and expertise to engage with listeners, Liberty uses the same to assist customers in achieving financial freedom through their life’s journey. Furthermore, radio has the ability to empower society through the sharing of information and that is why we at Liberty believe that radio will continue to grow and enrich the lives of many South Africans as it has continued to do for many years.”

 

There is no fee for entering the Liberty Radio Awards. All entries must be submitted through the online entry portal which can be accessed through the Liberty Radio Awards website: www.libertyradioawards.co.za.
