Khuli Chana, Zakes Bantwini, Amu, Spikiri, Sipho Hotstix Mabuse, The Muffinz, Zaki Ibrahim, Lilly Million, and TKZee, are part of over forty musicians who will be paying their respects to the fallen musical icons in SA.
The ten hour smoking hot celebration will encompass hip hop, kwaito, afro pop, soul and jazz, R&B, and house beats.
It takes place on March 23 at Mary Fitzgerald Square , Newtown.
Since the inception of the Hansa Festival of Legends, the concept has been well received by all and sundry, particularly musicians who regard the project as a cornerstone to aid both living and past-on fellows and celebrate their legacy.
Hansa general manager Khensani Nobanda, “This year’s Festival is a celebration of favourite artists from years gone by, who have indelibly left their mark on the South African music scene. But it’s also a showcase of today’s hottest talent and some of our country’s upcoming stars, which Hansa has previously provided a platform for.
“They are no longer with us but live on forever through their music,” said Nobanda.
Lulo Café with his cutting edge house music and acapella singing group The Soil add to the list, so is DJ Vigi, Glen Lewis and Oskido, and DJ Dimplez.
Throughout the Festival performers will honour famous South African artists such as Lebo Mathosa, Miriam Makeba, Brenda Fassie and other fallen heroes and heroines.
The special lounges will be themed around the late Grammy Award-winning artist Miriam Makeba, as well as other kwaito and hip-hop artists.
Kaya fm morning show host Kgomotso Bob Mabena and vivacious Anele will MC the proceedings.
“Together with several exciting consumer experiences which we are keeping as closely guarded secrets only to be seen on the day, the 2013 Hansa Festival of Legends promises to be the most memorable music experience of the summer,” Nobanda said.
According to Hansa’s signature theme ‘Just as Hansa Pilsener is a beer with a ‘special ingredient’, so each musician selected for the Festival has his or her own special ingredient that makes them extraordinary and keeps fans coming back, time after time’ this goes to show it’s party time!
