Top-notch Music at Cape Town’s Most Vibrant Market

Written by

HOUT BAY, WESTERN CAPE, SOUTH AFRICA: 20 FEBRUARY 2013: Get your groove on with accomplished local artists Kubu Strings, My Zone and Emma du Preez at Cape Town’s thriving Bay Harbour Market.

On Friday 22 February, Cape Town-based Flamenco guitar duo Kubu Strings takes to the Bay Harbour Sound Stage at the Bay Harbour Market, Hout Bay for Friday Night LIVE! Comprised of classically-trained musicians Pierre Fourie and Nizaar Allie, Kubu Strings combines Nouveau Flamenco guitar sounds with Bossa nova, nu jazz, classical, Eastern and African beats. They perform original compositions and are certainly not to be missed.

Hitting the stage on Saturday, February 23 is jazz trio My Zone. My Zone covers many different genres from the classical swing of the fifties to the contemporary jazz sounds of the modern era. Having performed at many venues such as Swingers, African Drum and West End, My Zone covers many well-known standards while adding their own improvisation and style that gives the band a unique sound. My Zone will have you swinging at any function or event.

Ending the weekend off on Sunday 24 February is singer/songwriter Emma du Preez along with much-loved poetic guitarist Andy Lunn. Fresh off recording her album in New York, Emma demonstrates the emotionally haunting union of an acoustic guitar, sweet, evocative vocals, a sharp mind and a deft ability for lyrical craftsmanship. Her strong stage presence and quirky playfulness combine with a startling vulnerability that makes for an enchanting performance.

As well as awesome live music, the Bay Harbour Market houses over 100 stalls featuring arts, crafts, fashion, decor and delicious cuisine.
