In celebration of the South African diversity of cultures and music, the Free State-born Hip-Hop artist, Letsopa La Rucca, in partnership with Lifestyle Explore bring you “Motswako Night” to light up the streets of Wooodstock in Capetown.
The event received a nod from the Western Cape Department of Cultural Affairs and Sports in support of the performing arts which have taken a strain amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Motswako/Motsoako is a Tswana/Sotho word meaning mixture. This word has been popularized by the Southern African Hip-Hop style that introduced mixing one’s mother tongue in Hip-Hop/rap lyrics which led to the birth of a new sound in South Africa and Botswana.” – explained Letsopa La Rucca when touching on the concept and inspiration behind the event.
In support of local small businesses, there will be a variety of stalls selling food, drinks and other goods while for entertainment, live performances by Letsopa La Rucca alongside Last Sunday Sessions live band, King Stabber and G Major O are to be expected.
