Ushairi na Ngoma

Updated: Apr 26

// Sunday 28 April @ Afro Braai - a celebration of creativity & artistic expression //

Get ready for an enchanting evening with "Ushairi na Ngoma," a collaborative event between AHADI and TRB (The Radioactive Blog) highlighting poetry and music. The event aims to increase awareness of live events in the City of Rose, showcase the work of AHADI and TRB, and set a standard for future collaborative events. "Ushairi na Ngoma" will take place at Afro Braai in Willows on the last Sunday of this month, the 28th of April. This event promises to be a celebration of creativity and artistic expression, bringing together diverse talents for an unforgettable evening of poetry and music.

The event will feature performances by Melaika (supported by Blaq), Moise, Jama, Lolly, Talksick and Kgosatsana Lethabo.

Melaika Nakatana, a soulful pop artist from Windhoek, Namibia, now based in South Africa, captivates with her heartfelt performances and vibrant, authentic style. Kgosatsana Lethabo is an author (of Palesa Hara Meutlwa), poet, storyteller, voice over artist and a human rights activist. Moïse Archipe, born March 1st, 1997, in Lubumbashi, D.R.C, and now based in South Africa, is a guitarist and producer blending African rhythms with jazz and hip-hop influences, known for his project "La Petite Fleur" and currently focusing on guitar education initiatives. Lolly, an Afro-soul/R&B artist from East London, overcame shyness to develop a vocal style influenced by Beyoncé and Yebba, showcasing a blend of calm strength and soulful depth in her music. Talk-sick is an Enthusiastic spoken word artist, easily fathomable and earger to continue learning the art to eventually cement his presence in the spoken word's realm. Jama, a self-taught saxophonist, finds inspiration in childhood memories of his mother's hymns and saxophone legends, embarking on a musical journey driven by exploration and collaboration.

I know I'm not the only one who misses the Radioactive Poetry Cafe, but those events will only commence in August. In the meantime, we're excited for the collaborations that we are working on, with this being our first collaboration for the year. If you'd like to register for Ushairi na Ngoma, click here. Tickets are limited, so make sure you get yours ASAP, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
