This December Cape Town will offer top class entertainment from the Suidoosterfees. From 3 to 5 December music artists from different genres will produce unique collaborations in Lockdown Legato, a series of picnic concerts in the city’s Company’s Garden.

The picnic concerts include the following exciting combinations: Rock & Rumba with Arno Carstens, Hassan Adas and Adelia Douw; All that Rapp with Jack Parow and the Unity Band; and Classics Fantastics with Die Heuwels Fantasties and members of the Cape Philharmonic Youth Orchestra.

Lockdown Legato is a collective effort by Suidoosterfees, City of Cape Town, ACT, kykNET, Netwerk24 and BASA. The music term legato means “joined” and sees a creative interaction among artists from different music genres. The idea for these concerts was conceived during the lockdown period to help create opportunities and promote synergy among artists. It is produced by the Cape Town Music Academy NPC.

Arno Carstens, Adelia Douw and the fusion band Hassan Adas will merge rock with Latin and African rhythms, while Jack Parow’s famous rap lyrics will be interwoven with the Unity Band’s divine jazz sounds. Classical music will be morphed into an electronic guise when the Mother City’s Philharmonic Youth Orchestra joins forces with Die Heuwels Fantasties and pop diva Tarryn Lamb.

Musical Director and curator of the Lockdown Legato shows, Schalk Joubert, explains how collaborations such as these are conducive to growth in the local music industry. “Bringing vastly different musicians together broadens the worlds of both artists and audiences, and it gives a platform for groundbreaking creativity and partnerships.”

Don’t miss out on these extraordinary collaborations. Tickets cost R100; bookings can be made at Computicket.
