An interdisciplinary live artwork by Sikhumbuzo Makhandula and featuring musicians Tumi Mogorosi, Sisonke Xonti and Wandi Makandula.
Zizimase is inspired by the biographical narrative of Lydia Williams who was born into slavery at Zonnebloem Estate, District Six. The artist seeks to trace sonic influences post the emancipation of slaves in Cape Town by offering oral histories and intellectual strategies through the performance of genealogies, clan names and songs. The work seeks to explore forms of cultural resistance and the survival wisdom of those who resided within and around District Six in the mid 19th century.
How do we start a conversation on music that lives inside people, without following the example and stringent rules firmly created by colonists, or western ideology?
Musicians: Tumi Mogorosi, Sisonke Xonti and Wandi Makandula.
