Festival director, Jerome Galabert says Sakifo means, ‘what is needed’ in Creole and with Zakifo Durban their intention is the same.

“We want to answer the call of the city’s creative voices; strengthening ties between the cultural communities of the Indian Ocean, from India to Australia to China and of course Reunion, Madagascar and Mauritius. Through our world-class line-up we strive to inspire and create lasting opportunities for collaboration; cross cultural exchanges; economic opportunities and skills development,” he said.

The sea breeze and crashing waves will provide the backdrop this year for the astonishing musical line up which includes Damian Marley (USA/ Jamaican reggae artist); Ray Phiri and Jojo Abot (a Ghanaian artist expressing herself through music, film/photography, literature and performance art).
