9th SAMA NOMINATION FOR MOREIRA CHONGUIÇA

Morestar Entertainment, the recording label for the superb ‘collaboration album’, M & M; MOREIRA CHONGUIÇA & MANU DIBANGO, is proud to announce that the album has been nominated for a South African Music Award in the category Best African Artist Album

Released in 2017 after 5 years in the making, the album pays homage to great jazz standards close to the hearts of Mozambican saxophonist, Chonguiça and Cameroonian saxophonist, Dibango.

“I am honoured that this album has been recognised by the South African music industry. M & M has once again showed the power of collaboration. It was such a privilege to record side by side with one of Africa’s greatest musicians and it is an experience that I will cherish forever”, says Moreira.

“This was a special experience for me working with a musician who is not only a fellow saxophonist but also my friend. Despite our age difference, we have many similarities in our styles of music. I enjoyed the opportunity of re-arranging US standards and giving them an African twist. We must not forget where we come from, our heritage, our soul. The roots of jazz are in Africa” says the legendary Manu Dibango.

Recorded in France at Ferber Studios in Paris, and mastered in Cape Town at Milestone Studios, this album has received widespread acclaim.

This will be Moreira Chonguica’s 9th SAMA nomination. Previous nominations include – The Moreira Project Vol 1: The Journey nominated for Best Instrumental, Best Contemporary Jazz Album and Best Producer which went on to win; The Moreira Project Vol 2: Citizen of the World, nominated for Best Contemporary Jazz, Best Producer and Best Album Packaging and went on to win Best Contemporary Jazz Album and Best Album Packaging and Khanimambo was nominated for Best Engineer and Best African Adult Album.

M & M: Moreira Chonguica & Manu Dibango, was also nominated for an AFRIMA award in 2017.

Moreira will be joining Manu Dibango at the Africa Festival in Wurtzburg, Germany in May 2018.

Moreira has also spoken at Music Exchange MEX (the music conference is now its 8th year this year to be held on 1 and 2 Sept in Cape Town ) and he has been a keynote speaker for a number of years along with his manager Lesley Wells.

: Powerful arts and culture mix for Cape Cultural Collective’s Voices programme -16 March

Powerful arts and culture mix for Cape Cultural Collective’s Voices for Human Rights programme

Fresh from a hugely successful tenth anniversary year, the Cape Cultural Collective kicks off its second decade with a powerful line-up of performers for its human rights themed cultural programme.

The event, comprising music, dance and poetry, will take place at the Slave Church Museum, 40 Long Street on Friday 16 March 2018 at 7pm.

Artists include singer Roeshdien Jaz, musicians Didi & Jules and the band Azanian Aesthetics as well as the much-loved Rosa Choir. Poets Roche Kester, Pro-Found and Allison Claire Hoskins will also perform.

Audiences can look forward to hearing the number one songs of Roeshdien Jaz aka Mr Jaz as well as the spellbinding original compositions of Didi & Jules, a guitar, violin and vocal duo. Azanian Aesthetics are fast becoming a favourite of CCC audiences with their amalgamation of old traditional and Pan African instrumental story telling.

Three powerful, no holds barred, performance poets will also grace the stage: Roche Kester, Allison-Claire Hoskins and Ziqu Pro-Found Ndabezitha.
No CCC event would be complete without the much-loved Rosa Choir. This incredibly diverse group of choristers, now in their 6th year, sing a range of songs in Afrikaans, Xhosa and English.

The event will be opened by the stirring rhythms and sounds of the CCC Drummers headed by Mbulelo Mapila.
“These monthly programmes are incredibly powerful and are attracting growing numbers of arts and culture lovers from across the Cape,” said Kay Jaffer, founder member of the CCC.

Our theme speaks to the need to put the concept of Human Rights under the spotlight and to give it real meaning in a time of uncertainty,” said Cape Cultural Collective programme organiser June Knight. She also added that “it is always inspiring when we manage to bring together such a diverse range of performers and audience members from all over Cape Town, it shows that we can break down artificial barriers”.

“The Slave Church Museum, with its deep-rooted connection to our slave history and wonderful acoustics, is the ideal place for thought-provoking and entertaining programmes of this nature,” said Mansoor Jaffer, chairperson of the CCC.

Refreshments will be on Sale. Entry is free and donations are welcome.

The Cape Cultural Collective is a diverse cultural group that promotes ideals of unity, inclusivity and equality and draws a link between history and the social challenges of our time.

Formed in 2007, the CCC has an impressive list of projects under its belt, including: monthly cultural programmes; a poetry anthology; the Rosa adult and junior choirs; the Vulamathuba choir; four major celebration concerts for UWC’s 50th anniversary; the Uhadi poetry production performed in Paris in 2013; cultural tourism initiatives, a hugely successful 10th year anniversary celebration which included a sold-out production at Artscape and a community picnic at the Castle.

The CCC works closely with a range of communities including Langa, Mitchells Plain, Manenberg and Bonteheuwel

The event is organised in collaboration with the SA Sendinggestig Museum. The SA Sendinggestig Museum examines the history of slaves and other marginalised groups and is housed in the oldest indigenous mission church in the country.
