The first Annual Ezakithi Music Outreach is taking place at the Bat Centre on the 7th December 2019. The program consists of two halves, a music industry workshop that is free of charge to all budding musicians and like minded individuals. This will run from 12pm to 4pm. The panel will feature Thando Nyameni – General Manager at KUMISA (Kwazulu Natal Music Industry Association) and Sphe Mbhele from The Music Imbizo to name a few.
The second part of the program is in the main hall at the BAT Centre at 5pm. This is where the six South African cultures will battle it out in the indigenous music competition and the winner will walk away with R10 000! Ezakithi Music Outreach is delighted to have two music professors on our panel of judges, Mr Bhekani Buthelezi and Mr Sandile Vilakazi from the University of Zululand.
That’s not all, the competition audience will be entertained by two KZN sensations, Maskandi Artist uNjoko and Tribal Queen sensation Lizwi M!
This great initiative is proudly sponsored by the National Department of Arts & Culture.
