Mzansi Magic television channel will feature Moses Taiwa Molelekwa - Live at the Fin De Siècle tonight (November 29) at 19h00.

1997's gathering of some 380 artists from South Africa on the shores of the Atlantic in the west of France must be earmarked as the most impressive show of South Africa's culture beyond its borders.

The idea of the Festival du Fin de Siecle was to invite to Nantes all kinds of cultural representatives from three of the world's great cities, in order to illustrate the creativity of each of these places at the dawn of the third millennium. The festival began in October 1997, with a celebration of Johannesburg, representing Africa, continent of roots. Beautiful costumes and great visual performances made the festival a unique event. Several of the musicians like the late Moses Taiwa Molelekwa, Busi Mhlongo, Madala Kunene, Pops Mohamed and Amampondo were invited to perform.
