Mandela Day 2018

Happy (almost) Mandela Day🌻
Tune into Smile 90.4FM at 7.30 am tomorrow to hear us talking about the 67 minutes we are spending busking to sponsor music lessons for the less privileged🎸🎤Don’t forget to come and say hi if you are close to Bayside Mall tomorrow between 12:00pm and 13:07pm

On the 18th of July we were privileged enough to be selected as part of an amazing initiative. Smile fm’s “Making Music for Madiba” project took over Cape Town’s busiest areas and filled them with buskers to raise money in aid of music lessons for the underprivileged. As we are all music teachers, this project was particularly close to our hearts.

We were stationed at Bayside Mall in Tableview and, after an early start due to being interviewed by Bobby and Lindi of the Smile Breakfast show, we headed to our exhibition point outside Woolworths and set up. For an hour and seven minutes we played our hearts out, danced to our favourite covers and took song requests (we played Love Yourself by Justin Bieber no fewer than 5 times!). The reception was brilliant and there was something special about knowing that Cape Town was filled with 66 other music groups doing the same thing as us!
