Join us for a mesmerizing musical journey that transcends cultural boundaries and celebrates the power of love, resilience, and music! Our show, “MALTA. THE UNUSUAL KINDNESS”, narrates the moving tale of a woman who, after a heart-wrenching divorce, found solace in a new city among the warm embrace of the Xhosa tribe, the diverse people of the city and the loving community of a church. Together with her three talented sons, they conquered the trials of financial hardship and emotional turmoil through the magical healing of music. Watch as their passion for music blossoms into two soul-stirring albums, transforming their lives and touching the hearts of many. Witness the captivating blend of Zulu and Xhosa songs and dance as we take you on an emotional odyssey of hope, resilience, and the transformative power of music. This heartwarming tale culminates with the creation of a music academy in an informal settlement, where they pass on the gift of music to the next generation, sowing seeds of inspiration that will last a lifetime. Come be part of this unforgettable experience, where the universal language of music unites us all in a symphony of love and unity.

We are also creating a vibrant marketplace within the event space. We are providing a fantastic opportunity for small business owners, showcasing an array of remarkable products, from exquisite traditional attires to a delightful assortment of goods in the Artscape Marble Foyer. This initiative is all about supporting our local entrepreneurs and celebrating the diversity of talent and creativity in our community. So, let’s come together to celebrate music, culture, and entrepreneurship under one roof. See you all at the show – it’s bound to be an unforgettable experience for everyone!
