African Dinner with Introduction into Storytelling
|All Eyez On Me|
The theme on the night of 25th April 2013, at Oom Bolo's home, was "African Dinner with Introduction into Storytelling". This formed part of What is Poetry Festival staged at different venues around Jozi, Mahikeng, Polokwane and Harare.
Oom Bolo's museum-cum-café set the stage for this evening's star, Mama Madosini , who flew in from Cape Town to share her storytelling through music.
We could not miss an opportunity to witness the sounds of uhadi, istolotolo and umrhubhe from the world renowned Manqina Madosini Latozi from Mqhekezweni, just outside Umtata in the Eastern Cape.
Under the full African moon, scrumptious dinner of mgqusho and chicken/mutton, with steady flow of wine supplied by the Hartenberg Wine Estate. Kumnand'ekhaya!
