Reggae night went down seamlessly on day two of the Red Bull Music Festival on Wednesday evening. Dedications to the late Mam’ Winnie Madikizela -Mandela did not end the previous day with singer Kolwane giving a befitting dedication to the Mother of the Nation. 

The jazz fest was hosted out at The Orbit in Braamfontein and the Round Robin evening for jazz lovers was embraced by the likes of Luyanda Madope,Bonj Mpanza, Keorapetse Kolwane and Tshepo Tsotetsi took to the stage. 

The fun did not end there, with artists collaborating in a Round Robin format of freestyle; which is a daring musical improvisation that challenges artists to creatively collaborate and perform together for the first time, completely unrehearsed.

Marcus Wyatt, Benjamin Japhta and Clem Carr joint together into a medley of songs before Zara Julius alongside DJ Okapi provided music to an exceptional evening, throwing it back to their favourite and most beloved vinyls. 

Newtown Music Factory hosted the Reggae Night and drew a crowd that not only enjoys the music but also the culture. 

Among the performers was Mad Mugo, a Zimbabwe born and breed artist who says he enjoys live performances because he gets to be free. The star fell in love with the genre from a very early age, he went on to pursue it around his teenage years. 

He shared a stage with other Reggae maestros like the Dancehall Queens & Dj Radix.

Our very own Manthe Ribane also performed last night at the Keyes Art Mile, in Rosebank. A very eventful night Red Bull brought to the people last night.
