A Starry Jazzy night

LEPHALALE – The biggest Jazz occasion ever with top performers and thousands of jazz lovers hit Lephalale on a lovely winter’s evening under the bushveld stars on Saturday 13 August on Mogol Club’s sports grounds.
This opportunity was made possible by Mooncloud44 and Cutting Tourch under the leadership of organiser Lalane Mojela. And as previously reported this gathering was history in the making! Highlights were appearances by Judith, Ringo, Selota, Zahara, Badimo Jazz Badimo, Professor and Shanti Lo who are the backbone of the music industry and keep it moving. Opportunity was also afforded local artists to display their talents too.
According to Lalane the opportunity exceeded all expectations despite it being the first of this magnitude to be held in Lephalale. He also said that it was a great privilege to be able to host the big names in the industry in Lephalale but that he wishes to include international artists in next year’s event. Something they are already working on in conjunction with the provincial department of arts and culture.
This year allowed the audience to catch a glimpse of what’s to come on 12 August 2017 – a three-day weekend-long fiesta with various art and cultural activities that will take place at various places – hopefully multi-cultural.
Indeed, this small idea, as mentioned the other day, showed on Saturday night that it has grown into something big, a child that has grown more quickly than expected into something large and glorious.
