Local maestro Camillo Lombard and veteran actor and director Basil Appollis have teamed up to celebrate the music of a few of Cape Town’s legendary musicians. Our legends passing the baton will be staged at the Artscape Theatre on Saturday. Co-produced by Artscape and Micallo Music Productions, the production will see local legends pass the baton on to aspiring artists. Stories will be celebrated with a variety of musical genres, including Cape jazz, cabaret, big band, pop, African traditional and ghoema, taking the audience on a musical journey from the 1980s to today. Our legends passing the baton was born of a need to showcase the stories and work of local heroes. The young artists “receiving the baton” have had the opportunity to walk a journey with the legends as their mentors. Top jazz trumpeter and band leader Ian Smith worked with young trumpeter Lorenzo Blignaut and vocalist Adelia Douw, while Afro jazz vocalist Sylvia Mdunyelwa worked with Xoliswa Tom. All-round entertainer and costume diva Sophia Foster worked with Abigail Bagley from Mitchell’s Plain.Our legends passing the baton will see Camillo’s band Top Dog giving the music of legends a new treatment. The band features Donveno Prins on sax, Morne Hoffmeester on drums and Charlton Daniels on bass. They’ll be joined by guitarist Angelo Syster. Tickets for Our legends passing the baton on Saturday cost R100 each and are available from Computicket or Artscape dial-a-seat on 021 421 7695.
