THE performance by Afro-pop duo Malaika, pictured, at the African Experience on Friday was out of this world.
African Experience is a concept bringing visual art, music and food under one roof. It is pioneered by Afro jazz diva Letta Mbulu, at Parktown conference centre Emoyeni.
Mbulu has been funded by the Department of Arts and Culture to run African Experience as one of the public viewing areas during the World Cup.
First to go on stage on Friday was a development band, and then Louis Mhlanga came in and demonstrated maturity with his strumming, which was well received by an equally mature audience.
By the time Malaika went on stage the audience was already fired up for an up-tempo sound from the sleek duo. It was really party time as most of the crowd stood up and danced.
Among other musicians booked to perform at the weekend between soccer matches was Tsepo Tshola.
And word doing the rounds is that Mbulu is likely to take the concept to another venue after the World Cup based on the success of the idea.
This is to provide not only a sleek jazz venue but a networking opportunity for professionals.
