  • On 22 December, two of Mzanzi’s most loved and lauded female power performers, Shekhinah and Unathi, are set to grace the stage at Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts for the very first time.

Kicking off this double dose of musical magic with her easy listening melodies, will be singer, songwriter, Idols SA judge and mega award winner, Unathi. Dubbed as the modern-day African Renaissance Woman, Unathi has wooed audiences of all calibres and continues to gather continental acclaim. Today, she’s regarded as one of the most influential women in entertainment.
After opening for Ed Sheeran, Pop/R&B singer/songwriter Shekhinah’s popularity and musical career took off faster than an Elon Musk space rocket.
Now, as an established multiple award-winning artist, she’s notched up numerous #1 platinum and gold singles. ‘Rosegold’, her debut album, quickly went platinum and Spotify has confirmed that Shekhinah remained 2019’s most-streamed local female artist – you go girl! Stay tuned – she’s dropping her new album in 2020.

Freshlyground, Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts

The New Year’s Eve Concert at Kirstenbosch is set to sizzle! #KBRocks veterans, Freshlyground, still hold the biggest show attendance record ever at the Kirstenbosch! Add a bakkie full of awards, seven albums, multi-platinum sales and a most played song on radio in 2005 with “Doo Be Doo”, and Freshlyground is to SA what U2 is to Ireland. This is the band’s swansong gig together, which promises to be raw, nostalgic, intimate and emotional.

Get your feet a-tapping and your limbs a-flailing with Cape Town’s
Nomadic Orchestra, a five-piece instrumental brass dance band that pumps out infectious, super high-energy beats. Regulars at music festivals across SA, the ‘Nomads’ are super-amped to help get Zolani’s farewell party started!

Yannick Wilde, creator of Native Young, describes his project as a constantly evolving tapestry of culture, emotion and melody. Expect a magical fusion of anthemic uplifting vocals, Indie folk grooves and raw African rhythm. They’ll also be premiering their hot new single “Zola”.

  • On 5 January 2020, Jimmy Nevis will perform at #KBRocks with warming-up acts Craig Lucas and Paxton Fielies.

Jimmy Nevis, Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts

Alternative pop singer/songwriter and producer, Jimmy Nevis has notched up four #1 hits and four national radio top 10’s. Inspired by Bruno Mars, Flume and The Script, he’s collaborated with MiCasa, Pascal & Pearce, Kwesta and Sketchy Bongo and opened for international acts like Tevin Campbell and megastar Pharrell Williams.

With his deeply emotive soul and wide vocal range, shy and self-taught musician and The Voice 2017 winner, Craig Lucas has #1 hits aplenty and graced the biggest stages. He loves to make music that speaks to everybody, especially kids like him – the misfits, the outsiders, the dreamers and the non-conformists.

Paxton Fielies quickly captured the ears, hearts and musical souls of South Africans when she won Idols season 13. She’s now dropped numerous #1 hits and albums and also tours internationally. Her style is uniquely Paxton and superbly versatile, bouncing from smooth and spine chilling ballads, to dancy pop numbers.
