The Red Bull Music Festival kicked off to a heartfelt tribute to Mama Winnie Madikizela-Mandela by Langa Mavuso and Zoe Modiga. Preluded by African inspired electronica DJ Leeu; the duo performed songs from legendary South African artists such as Yise Wabant’a Bami by Busi Mhlongo; Letta Mbulu’s Music in the air and Paradise Road by Joy.
Fresh from her European tour, Zoe also performed her own hits such as Yakhala inkomo to the crowd’s delight. Mavuso performed his famous track, Home. He will perform once again at Fox Junction alongside 340 Million and Shekhinah this Friday.
DJ Kenzhero wrapped up the night with a set that certainly encapsulated all the sounds that will be heard over the rest of the week.
The rest of the week includes performances from Luyanda Madope at The Orbit on Wednesday 4th April; Trompies at Republic of 94 on Friday 6th April and UK Grime superstar Skepta will descend upon Fox Junction on Saturday 7th April.
