The Bassline Live music experience comes to you, online this Saturday. Performances from the likes of Ami Faku, Urban Village and Zoë Modiga were pre-recorded at the Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City in May.

A limited audience of 250 people enjoyed the evening of music due to the Covid-19 restrictions. The virtual presentation is split into three streams happening on July 3,10 and 17. These will be available to access, countrywide.

Soul singer Modiga, who captivated the small crowd, says: “The Bassline Live Night was an incredible moment for live music. I enjoyed sharing the evening with the other artists. I am sure all the music lovers in attendance enjoyed creating magic with us.”

She says she’s always appreciative of every opportunity to share her music and messages on stage. And this moment was no different.

“Music is the one superpower that is the soundtrack to our lives. This may be a frozen moment in time but I believe anyone who has the chance to watch the live stream, will be impacted.”

It was really great performing in front of an audience but also knowing that more people who couldn’t be there, would get to watch the show which makes it all the more worthwhile.

Faku says: “It felt good being a part of such an experience. There was a lot of care and attention to detail, which is how I approach my craft as well. It was really great performing in front of an audience but also knowing that more people who couldn’t be there, would get to watch the show which makes it all the more worthwhile.”

People should watch more live performances online as it’s a mood booster and entertainment from the safety of their homes.

Naturally, these have been the hardest of times, especially for performing artists.

Lead singer Tubatsi Mpho Moloi, of the folk and rock group Urban Village, says all the acts relished the opportunity to perform on the night.

“It is a relief because it means the culture of performance is alive and kept relevant as music is healing and can aid the people. It [music] keeps us happy and revives the mood and our sanity which is something that is overlooked. People should watch more live performances online as it’s a mood booster and entertainment from the safety of their homes.”
