This tour was exceptional! I thoroughly enjoyed it. I met the tour guide at a hotel in downtown Cape Town. After introductions and a drink we were off in a van to the former township of Mitchell's Plain - about a 25 minute drive. During the drive we were told of the roots of choral music in Cape Town and specifically among the Cape Colored cultural group. At our first house we were met by the owners who had prepared a delicious meal Cape Malay dishes for us. During the meal we were told more about the roots of the music we would soon be hearing. After dinner the quartet of musicians arrived -- the Young Ideas. The quartet was comprised of a father and his three sons. The music was incredible and included traditional tunes, adaptations of popular tunes and selections written by members of the quartet. They performed for over an hour and I enjoyed every minute of it.
From our first home we were driven to a second home in another township. The performers were waiting for us and consisted of two young men -- a music teacher and his protégé. Over the next hour they performed solos and duets -- from traditional Xhosa songs to classical Handel pieces. Their only accompaniment: on occasion a tambourine, or snapping fingers. Their voices were amazing -- especially the bass of the younger man.
This night is one I will remember fondly. I highly recommend tour!!
What an amazing evening I experienced! I encourage
