Being Human

02/06/2021

Let me tell you about the singer. The singer is dangerous when she lies. She is dangerous when she tells the truth. She causes revolutions. She starts something in your mind, a completion of endings. The singer is in bondage unless she sings. Songs are stories, a documentation of souls and spirits, a telling of moments in history and time. Songs memoralise experiences and emotions. Songs also have the ability to heal, to teach, to moralise and corrupt. Songs can make you understand the moments and give you a prophetic (if you may) understanding of things to come.

Auriol Hays is a singer! Auriol Hays wants to be human; she needs to be Free!

She seeks to heal, prophesy, tell a story, seduce, lie, tell the truth and draw you in, into magic, her magic, a WOMAN magic. Auriol Hays takes us on a journey, a journey of healing and freedom. A journey on BEING HUMAN. A journey of The Divine Feminine being, a frequency that all should share. A journey through the voices of iconic women who have used their voices to make impact and effect meaningful change within their respective societies.

Ms Hays has been nominated for both the SAMA and Mbokodo jazz, and also opened for triple award-winning musician and instrumentalist Ben Harper in 2019, is performing with her talented band The Saints (Rodney Buys on Piano, Shaun Fracke on Guitar, Liam Webb on Drums and Andre Webb plays the Bass and directs the Band). They will be at her side once again, as she shares the music of women who inspired not only her body of work but the world at large. Musicians like Billy Holiday, Nina Simone, Miriam Makeba, Shirley Bassey and others. Infused with their music are compositions of her own.

Venue: Gallery 44 and Theater (44, Long Street Cape Town)

Date: Friday 4th of June and Saturday 5th of June

Time: 6.30pm for 7pm

Goodbye Sledge – Ebrahim Linneveldt RIP

08/01/2021

A gentle giant in Cape Town’s rich music and activist history has fallen.

Ebrahim Linneveldt, known to many as simply Sledge passed away earlier this week.

Amongst all his many activities Sledge was also a Bush Radio volunteer and used to host a Sunday programme called “Gister se Dinge” – A programme hosted by various other Cape Town legends like Vincent Kolbe, Joe Schaffers, Zelda Benjamin and more.

Host of Jazz on Bush, Dr Victor Davids recalled his memory of Sledge; “On 5 January 2000,at the welcoming function of Jazzathon held at West End, I was introduced to an amazing soul that was larger than life, while talking to Kenny Blake of the Super Heads Up Band, who gave  me a saxophone mouthpiece,  in a loud, but firm voice Sledge replied, what a great gift you are  exchanging  at the most Southern tip of Africa. That was the start of a friendship, that ended on 5 January 2021, when news broke of his passing. Sledge was an amazing gentleman, humble, caring, and had the ability to make one feel comfortable. He hosted a show Gister se Dinge, on Bush Radio which followed my show, with absolute passion and commitment. A big tree has fallen in the Cape Town entertainment world.”

Long-time Bush Radio Volunteer and entertainment industry professional, Calvin Peters said; “Sledge was larger than life and he had a phenomenal presence and aura that would literally fill a room.”

This week’s edition of Retro-Rewind (Sunday, 10 January 2021 from 10am to 2pm) will be dedicated to Sledge.

Send us your memories or stories about Sledge via whatsapp to 0618621065 or simply tune into 89.5fm or online.
