THE fourth annual Zakifo Music Festival is hitting Durban’s shores on 25, 26 and 27 May, and promises a wide-ranging line-up of cutting-edge musicians from across the African continent and beyond.

This year the festival will be spread across three Durban venues – the BAT Centre, Views at Twenty5, and Blue Lagoon Beach.

Kicking off the festival on Friday night is a fundraising concert for the Nelson Mandela Foundation at the BAT Centre, featuring Sekou Kouyate, a renowned kora player from Guinea, and Elida Almeida, a young Cape Verdean folk singer. Headlining the evening is South African icon Sipho ‘Hotstix’ Mabuse.
