I've just learned that South African super band Freshlyground will be joined live on stage by jazz legend Vusi Mahlasela for a benefit concert in South Africa at Spier on Thursday, December 7th, 2006.
The Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation have teamed up with Freshlyground, winners of the Best African Act at the 2006 MTV Europe Music Awards, and Mahlasela to raise funds for the non profit organisation’s community sites in the Guguletu and Masiphumelele townships.
In particular, the concert marks the start of a campaign to raise funds for the Kethuphila Youth Centre to be built at Masiphumelele. This youth centre will bring new hope and opportunities for the young people of Masiphumelele.
This celebration of South African musical talent and Desmond Tutu’s 75th birthday gives music lovers the opportunity to support the Foundation in their efforts to bring hope to people living with HIV.
The Desmond Tutu 75th Birthday Bash Concert is part of the Spier African Arts Music Festival. Tickets cost R 170.00 per person. For more information log on to www.computicket.com or call the Spier Box Office on tel. 021 809 1111.
