Thandiswa Mazwai wants you
Thandiswa Mazwai wants all female musicians to audition for her new all woman band.
Thandiswa Mazwai is a busy lady. Right now, she is about to embark on a tour with Paul Simon as the part of the Graceland 25th Anniversary Tour, which coincides with the release of the 25th Anniversary Edition of the famous album. The tour kicks off in Dublin, Ireland on 12 July and ends in Bergen, Norway on 26 July. Other South African artists participating in this project are Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Ray Phiri, Barney Rachabane and Tony Cedras.
On her return to South Africa, she will then be giving local female aspiring musicians the opportunity to launch their careers. She is looking for the brightest and most talented women instrumentalists to audition for her new, all female band. According to her, this opportunity is based on the need to affirm and foreground talented female musicians in South Africa who face challenges in a predominantly male-run industry.
Date: 1‐3 August 2012
Time: 10am ‐ 4pm
Venue: Bassline, Johannesburg
Instrumentalists (including DJs) and prospective candidates must prepare three of Thandiswa’s songs and one song of their own choice to show off their style and flair.
