Friday 11 December
17h00 – 19h00
Jazz songstress, Thobeka Langa, and her band will feature in The Playhouse Company’s next free SUNDOWNERS concert on Friday 11 December from 17h00 in the Playhouse coffee shop. At only 27 years of age, Langa has already performed with high-profile artists such as Lira, Judith Sephuma, Ronnie Jordan, MiCasa and Ernie Smith. Having shown off her vocal talents at several large events around the province, Langa is a graduate of the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s Centre for Jazz and Popular Music, where she received cum laude accolades for her performance practical. This honour, coupled with her outstanding performance at Unisa’s School of Music launch, earned Langa a scholarship to study for a Master’s degree at the North Carolina Central University in the United States.
Also performing in the enormously popular poetry slot for the evening will be poets Rodney Roskrudge, Phiwo Ndlela, Hlengiwe Mbatha and Mpilwenhle “Umandulo” Sithole.
The Playhouse Company’s SUNDOWNERS series of concerts give eThekwini CBD workers an opportunity to start their weekend off the entertaining way with music, poetry and much more, all for free. Playhouse patrons receive discounted parking at the Royal Hotel Parkade and at the Albany Grove Parkade.
The Playhouse coffee shop offers a variety of light meals and drinks, while the Playhouse bar is open for every performance.
