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

Door: R180
