(Qadasi David Jenkins & Maqhinga)

The Winston Churchill Theatre claims its status as a music hub, by collaborating in bringing music to the people. “The aim is to develop an interest and appreciation of live music, take artists back to their communities to create new young audiences for their craft whilst mentoring and being good role models to the young” says Lu Dlamini, creative director at The Headroom and coordinator for the Headroom- Concerts SA events – which works with musicians, promoters, venue owners and audiences, including initiatives like The Headroom as one of its partners in KZN.

April 21 will see the Winston Churchill Theatre coming alive once again. The day’s programme for students and learners only will start with a lunchtime performance by the popular KZN duo of Qadasi no Maqhinga. These two are a beautiful example of what‘s possible in a culturally cohesive society.

The performance takes place on April 21 at 13h00 at the Winston Churchill Theatre, 2 Leinster Road, Pietermaritzburg. Entrance is free. For more information contact 033 392 2264, email: or visit
