Finally, Cape Town and South Africa are in for a unique heritage treat this Spring, as music legend and founder member of the inimitable dance group, Amampondo puts together an unconventional exhibition to celebrate the group who ‘brought the rhythm of Africa to Cape Town’, and who were responsible for introducing one of SA’s most popular music styles – marimba.

‘Dizu Plaatjies and Amampondo – Our work in progress’ is an experimental exhibition which shares memorabilia from the group’s 25 years together, from the time they started in 1979 to their split in 2004. The exhibition will run from 7 October until 16 December 2016 and is currently open by appointment only.
