Mama Goema: The Cape Town Beat in Five Movements  2153

Release date: Sat 11 Jun 2011
Running time:60 (1h00’)
Age restriction:

Take a pinch of Khoi-San lament, a dash of Malay spice, a bold measure of European orchestral, a splash of Xhosa spiritual, a clash of marching bands, a riff of rock, the pizzazz of the Klopse, some driving primal beat, and a lot of humour and musical virtuosity. What do you get? Goema Goema Goema! Mac MacKenzie, musical mastermind and founder of The Genuines and The Goema Captains of Cape Town, puts the final touches to the culmination of his life’s work: Goema in Five Movements. Musicians and musical commentators Hilton Schilder, Neo Muyanga, Iain Harris, Graham Arendse and Ntone Edjabe, and new kids on the block, Kyle Shepherd and Shane Cooper, add a
contemporary context.
