Puppet Nation, one of South Africa’s most awarded TV shows, has just won another SEVEN SAFTAS, brining the total over the years to 29. However, the show is now no longer broadcast anywhere in South Africa, meaning that the most respected and loved voices of biting political satire has been silenced. The Puppet Nation team is on the search for a new broadcast home.

 

“Posthumous”Puppet Nation SAFTA Wins “Bittersweet”

_______________________________________________________________________

PuppetNation, the show that nobody will put on nationaltelevision, collected 7 SAFTAs at this year’s event, bringing its total overthe years to 29. The awards were for the final season of Puppet Nation which aired on pan-african satellite channel StarSat(StarTimes ch201) in 2017, before they ended their relationship with the showdue to budget cuts. Puppet Nation,which has also earned two International Emmy nominations in recent years, wasnominated for eight awards, winning the trophies for Production Design,Wardrobe, Sound, Cinematography, Scriptwriting, Directing, and Best TV Comedy.

 

 

 

“It’s a show that has been recognisedconsistently since it launched in 2009, both locally and internationally, as astandout comedy show, giving South Africa biting homegrown satire. But sadly,right now, the puppets are in their boxes, and we don’t know when or if they’llbe coming out to play again,” said Executive Producer Thierry Cassuto. Fans ofthe show, like The Nelson Mandela Foundation, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutuand trade union leader Zwelinzima Vavi among others, have consistently spokenout for the show and about the importance of satire and critical comedy in ademocracy like ours. But while the programme has a very large social mediafollowing, it cannot financially survive with a purely online existence.

 

 

“We hope that these awards will remindbroadcasters and sponsors that PuppetNation is high quality television, that it makes viewers – young and old-  think and laugh, and that it deservesa TV home,” Cassuto added.

 

 

In addition, Both Worlds, the company behind Puppet Nation, was nominated for Best Gameshow for the second year in a row for Point of Order – another show which is no longer on air. Host Tumi Morake wasalso nominated as best presenter for the last two years. “Point of Order was another casualty when StarSat were no longerable to afford it,” Cassuto says, “and while we’re delighted that its Afrikaans sister show, Parlement Parlement, isdoing well on kykNET, we’re dying to see Season 5 of Point of Order on a new TV channel soon.” In the meantime, fans can stream the first award-winning  season of Point of Order on Showmax.

BASSLINE FEST officially announces two of the headline artists for the weekend of 26th and 27th May will be none other than African greats Salif Keita from Mali, and pop phenomenon Yemi Alade from Nigeria.

 

 

With more artists being announced regularly, the festival’s line up is growing from strength to strength and has now officially announced artists from afield Brazil, France, Japan, Cape Verde, Guinea, Mozambique, Reunion Island, Mali, Nigeria and of course South Africa.

 

The artists are all part of the celebration that unites and pays homage to our continent and in particular this year, to the legacy that is Nelson Mandela.

The two artists that have been selected as ambassadors from Africa to celebrate Madiba’s legacy are Yemi Alade and Salif Keita, who collectively will perform in an exclusively crafted performance to pay tribute through not only their own songs, but also a duet and a further composition entitled “Africa’s Tribute To Mandela”.

 

The BASSLINE FEST will be the only opportunity for one to witness the duet and add even more exclusivity to this already rare world-class line up.

 

Salif Keita is one of the continent’s most beloved Afro-pop artists. Having been ostracised for his albinism as a younger adult, he immersed himself in music before moving to Paris where he has resided since 1984, honing his craft and becoming one of the most prolific stars from Africa. Known as the ‘golden voice’, Salif has released over 20 albums with some of the biggest record labels in the world.  He has toured the globe extensively and known as one of West Africa’s finest composers and singer.  BASSLINE FEST is honoured to be able to add him to the line-up in 2018.

 

Yemi Alade is one of the younger pop stars from Nigeria that is currently making huge waves across not only Africa, but in parts of Europe too.  As a winner of the talent show, Peak Talent in 2009 she subsequently released the smash hit Johnny, which saw her becoming a house-hold name almost instantly.  She has followed it up with similar styles of dance pop combined with her signature humorous lyrics.  Despite her massive stardom, Yemi has released three albums, and has shared stages with acts such as Mary J Blige, Wizkid, M.I., Waje and many others.  We are excited to see her on South African soil.

 

The other confirmed artists for BASSLINE FEST, all previously announced, are as follows:

Dub Inc – France

Flavia Coelho – Brazil

Nakhane – South Africa

Nathalie Natiemba – Reunion Island

Ghorwane – Mozambique

Sipho ‘Hotstix’ Mabusa – South Africa

Oki Dub Ainu Band – Japan

Sekou Kouyate – Guinea

Azah – South Africa

Elida Almeida – Cape Verde

More artists are being booked for the festival on a regular basis.

 

Now in its 14th year as the only Johannesburg-based Festival that celebrates African unity and diversity, BASSLINE FEST will be held over 2 full days for guests to enjoy music platforms and great food as well as a Nelson Mandela day tour “Footsteps of Mandela”.  Dialogue will also be held to promote social cohesion across the continent.

 

The BASSLINE FEST hashtag, #Bethelegacy is inspired by a partnership with the Nelson Mandela Foundation as we join the Nelson Mandela centenary celebrations.

Bassline will be working closely with the Nelson Mandela Foundation to promote Madiba’s legacy, through dialogue and Music programming.  BASSLINE FEST is the Foundations official Africa month celebratory event.

 

The music and food festivities kick off on Saturday the 26th May from 3pm to 11pm with two stages, both featuring top tier artists from not only the African continent, but from across the globe.  The Sunday fest times are 12pm to 7pm.

 

SABC2 will broadcast live from the Fest between 8pm and 11pm, reaching a sizeable television audience.

 

Tickets can be booked at www.ticketpros.co.za now for R400 per day.

 

BASSLINE FEST has also put together travel packages for guest coming from afar and a Footsteps of Mandela tour.

Oleta Adams to perform live in Sandton

Posted by radio On March - 23 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

Oleta Adams, one of soul music’s legendary names, will set the stage alight when she performs at the Sandton Convention Centre (Pavilion) on Friday, April 27, 2018. She will share the musical honours with South Africa’s own Wanda Baloyi. These two diverse performers make a dynamic package and something to which dedicated music followers can look forward.

 

“T Musicman is delighted to bring  back Oleta Adams to our shores to share the stage with  as we celebrate 21 years of the Standard Bank Joy of Jazz and 20 years of a fruitful partnership with Standard Bank. This journey deserves a spectacular celebration”.

 

We are honored with the support we have had from Business, Public institutions and the public in general. Get your ticket and come experience and celebrate with us for one night only. This Road to Standard Bank Joy of Jazz paves a way to the exciting line up announcement scheduled in May.

 

Adams is a unique artist. She has inspired a growing legion of fans in both the U.S. and Europe with journeys of the heart through songs that draw deeply from her roots in gospel, while crossing effortlessly into the realms of soul, R&B, urban, and popular music.

She came to the attention of the music world with the runaway success of her 1990 Platinum debut album, Circle of One. The record spawned the impassioned hit single, Get Here, the Brenda Russell composition that became the unofficial anthem of the 1991 Gulf War.

 

Her success, nurtured by worldwide tours with Tears for Fears, Phil Collins, Michael Bolton, and Luther Vandross, has been solidified by four Grammy nominations and a seemingly bottomless well of creative energy.

 

Oleta will be adding to her musical legacy with the release in April of a new secular album, Let’s Stay Here, which she is producing herself in addition to writing eight of the ten songs on the album. It will be her eighth album.

 

The album is described as “evocative with a soulful jazz influence and songs that project many tantalising thoughts.” It also features Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good”. The concert, presented by Road to Standard Bank Joy of Jazz, falls under the T Music Man banner. This is the organisation behind the annual Standard Bank Joy of Jazz festival which it has organised with enormous success for the past 31 years.

 

The concert begins at 20:00, but doors will open at 19:30. Tickets prices are R400 and can be obtained from Computicket.

Liberty Radio Awards Finalists announced

Posted by radio On March - 20 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

Tracey Lange leaves her Heart behind

Posted by radio On March - 15 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

The 9-12 show on Heart FM will become a lot less boisterous and bubbly on Friday this week, as host Tracey Lange presents her last show on the station. Tracey, who joined the station three years ago, will be hanging up her headphones and heading straight to set. Over the last few years the radio personality has become more in demand in the TV world and this will be a strong focus for her brand over the next while.

Tracey is currently the co-host of the M-Net’s live reality show Dancing with The Stars SA and presents a lifestyle show on KykNET – BRAVO! which she has been doing for the past few years. She also has a few other projects in the pipeline.

 

Tracey says she will miss the listeners the most. “Being a part of the Heart FM family has been everything I’d hoped it would be and allowed me to do what I’d set out to do when I decided to pursue a career in broadcasting – giving people the platform to share their stories. Fortunately this won’t end, with the start of another new TV show that will be announced in the next few weeks. I will miss the listeners endlessly and all the fun I had with them on air daily. I will cherish my three years with the listeners forever.”

 

Heart FM’s Head of Programming Denver Apollus says Tracey’s absence will be felt. “Tracey is an industry professional and her contribution to the mid-morning space has seen the show grow in numbers. We will miss her bubbly personality and energy she brings to the show.”

Managing Director for the station Renee Redelinghuys echoes Apollus’ sentiments. “Tracey has an infectious energy to which people are naturally drawn. Her laughter and banter with the boys in the morning, especially the high pithed “Hi” which has become synonymous before her show will be missed. Even the flou-jokes which she introduced. Tracey is a true professional in every sense of the word and there is no doubt that her star will only shine brighter from here. We thank Tracey for her contribution to the station and the Heart FM family as a whole.”

2018 marks four years of The Orbit’s existence. As has become tradition, this fourth birthday will be celebrated with The Orbit Anniversary Festival from 13th to 18th March. During this week, The Orbit will be the center of attraction, as some of the country’s most gifted musicians and arts revelers flock to the venue to celebrate the growth of South Africa’s jazz culture.

 

The Orbit Anniversary Festival is truly a coming of age celebration like no other and, this time around, we bring you #The4thMovement.

 

This anniversary conventionally signifies stability and coming full circle and #The4thMovement at The Orbit will be reminiscent of the excitement when the jazz journey first started.

 

#The4thMovement will be bringing big sound with some of the bigger bands in jazz. Celebrating with us will be the legendary Sibongile Khumalo, The Blue Notes Tribute Orkestra, Tlale Makhene’s Swazi Gold, Steve Dyer’s Mantswe a Marabi, and Luyanda Madope’s Connecting Generations.

 

Extra special about The Orbit Anniversary Festival 2018 will be the reunion of the legendary VOICE after almost ten years since they last performed together. This iconic quintet consists of some of South Africa’s most seasoned musicians such as Andile Yenana, Marcus Wyatt, Sidney Mnisi, Herbie Tsoaeli, and Morabo Morajele.

 

This year’s festival will also be the first time a brand new band, Trio Grande, will be presented to South Africa. The trio is a coming together of key figures in South African music; Feya Faku, Paul Hanmer, and Louis Mhlanga. #The4thMovement will be closed off on Sunday, 18 March in jazz tradition with a free jam session led by award-winning pianist and producer, Luyanda Madope.

 

As always, the musical feast will happen at The Home of Jazz – The Orbit – with a meeting of the minds between artists and appreciators of the arts who will descend on Braamfontein to celebrate #The4thMovement.
