The Windybrow Arts Center is excited to announce this year’s electrifying lineup that will perform at the venue from the 8th to the 29th of May 2021. Africa Month festivities are of continental significance, and the Windybrow Arts Centre has entrenched itself in the community so that it can provide diverse programming that reaches out to people in Gauteng.
In collaboration with The Market Photo Workshop, the Africa Month Festival will open with an alumni student-led exhibition exploring spirituality and the arts.
Ihiya is established around the Faraday Muthi Market and Kwa Mai Mai. The critical factor that drives the idea of using the market as a space of learning and teaching for visual storytellers is that the market itself carries attributes towards knowledge cultivation through the combustion of a vibrant market community.
Season Dates: Saturday 29th May @ 12pm
As Africans, one of our greatest characters is our market of languages; we are known to be a continent of multilingual tongues.
What would a festival celebrating the beauty of our continent be without a night of laughter in the various dialects we hold?
We arrive at an African Variety Market, and on the 22 May we stop for a comic break-in “South Africa”, and the goal is to celebrate the Indigenous South African Languages. We have a multilingual host, who takes us on the quirky linguistic journey by introducing a variety of Comic and Musical acts, who offer funny renditions of their craft in Mzansi tongues.
We close off the spectacular festival with a music concert celebrating the diverse sounds of the continent featuring the iconic Zulu rapper Big Zulu alongside muso Mduduzi Ncube. The concert celebrates the ways in which our languages and dialects can gel and be incorporated into various genres that are recognized and understood globally.
