 Basha Uhuru - Free Music Festival

The Basha Uhuru Freedom Fest bills itself as a festival that “commemorates the spirit of the students of 1976”. To uphold this mantra, the festival provides a platform for young creative South Africans to share in their talents over the five days that the festival runs. The festival encompasses Conversations of Freedom creative talks, a contemporary group art exhibition titled Expressions of Freedom and a Visions of Freedom film screening. These activities culminate in the Sounds of Freedom music concert. This concert, taking place on Saturday, features a diverse line-up of musical talent. These artists and DJs include Thandiswa Mazwai, Stogie T, Zola, Sjava, BCUC, Gigi Lamayne, Dope Saint Jude, Kly, Ms Cosmo, DJSpeedsta, Twins On Decks, DJKenzhero and a whole host of other artists. It’s all set up to be a unique experience catering to a range of different sounds and genres.
