(Thulile Zama and band)

Thulile Zama brings a Tribute to Mama Africa to Tina’s Hotel in Kloof presented by Rhumbelow Theatre.

One well-loved African vocalist honouring another. Miriam Makeba’s career influenced Thulile Zama to such extend that she found it fitting to do a tribute in the honour of Mama Africa.

She and her band have chosen songs from different era of her illustrious career including favourites like Pata Pata and The Click Song, but also the ballads like Promise and the heart wrenching offerings that she penned when she was in exile are included in their set.

A Tribute to Mama Africa features Thulile Zama on vocals; David Smith on piano; Sbusiso Mkhonza on bass guitar and Rebekah Pillay on drums.

Performances take place on November 17 and 18 at 20h00 and on November 19 at 14h00. (Venue opens 90 minutes before show for drinks)
