The next Monday Music programme at Rhumbelow Theatre in Durban will be A Journey on Njinji Street. This trio performance is supported by Concerts SA through funding from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and SAMRO. Concerts SA is administered by IKS Cultural Consulting.

The performance takes place on June 6 at 18h30 (Venue opens 90 minutes before show for snacks/drinks)

Samkelo Njinji will be taking audiences on a journey that he conceptualizes as Njinji Street. Njinji Street is the lane of healing and love, where medication is released in melody format to revive one’s inner man. On this night, expect a performance of Njinji’s compositions which are a look into his soul, thoughts and imaginations. You will get a sense of his struggles and how music has become his daily dose of hope.

Pianist Samkelo Njinji will be joined by Blessings Twala on bass and Snethemba ‘Snare’ Cele on vocals. It’s a journey you definitely want to embark on.

Picnic baskets may be brought to Rhumbelow Theatre, or food can be purchased onsite – burgers, wors rolls, chicken pops and chips, cheesy Russians, snack baskets etc. A full bar is available (no alcohol may be brought on to the premises).
