The South African State Theatre in partnership with Akum Agency and ALTBLK>> presents Urban Village, Sibusile Xaba, Leomile and Umle on Sunday 27 February 2022 as part of SAST Fringe.
When you have never known you’re the village of origin, how do you find your roots? For the four musicians of Urban Village, who have known only their gigantic township of Soweto, these traditional roots hidden by buildings and concrete are the source of their music. Urban Village creates a unique melding of Zulu guitars, indie-folk, South African choirs, and Jazz and dazzled with an insane energy and charisma. Pretoria based artist Sibusile Xaba's charismatic reframes maskandi and the avantgarde into his own.
