South African Meistersinger, Sibongile Khumalo, Celebrates Two Decades of Song


This Freedom Day Weekend gives Johannesburg music lovers the opportunity to celebrate the living legacy of Sibongile Khumalo. Long revered as being among the world’s most accomplished vocalists, South Africa’s beloved musical daughter will be celebrating 20 years as a performer in the entertainment industry.

Titled the “Breath of Life” Concert, Sibongile Khumalo hopes to re-assert the importance of music as a powerful healing tool. She will take to the stage on the 27th and 28th of April 2012 in a mesmerizing demonstration of her performance prowess. Khumalo explains that “each breath we take in love and gratitude comes out and fills the world with more love and beauty. “Breath of Life” appeals to all of us to live consciously and literally breathe life into our dreams…”

The “Breath of Life” concert; which coincides with the 20th Anniversary of the unprecedented and ground breaking season of “The 3 Faces of Sibongile Khumalo”*, held at Kippies jazz lounge in 1992; will see Victor Masondo once again take to the stage with Sibongile Khumalo. This, now legendary, presentation of Khumalo’s vocal competence, which featured Masondo on the original lineup, resulted in her receiving the Standard Bank Young Artist Award for Music. This highlight marked the beginning of an illustrious, robust and longstanding career.

The first of a number of performances to celebrate this milestone in Sibongile Khumalo’s career is brought to you in partnership with the Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City Casino and About Entertainment.

Tickets for this not to be missed performance are available at Computicket and The Lyric box office at Gold Reef City and range from R167.40 and R371.00
