It’s the 4th and final show of the 2019 Old Mutual Music at the Lake series and one you certainly do not want to miss out on. Especially if you’re into the sounds of Afro-pop, hip hop and a little bit of hip-swaying, foot-tapping, soul-shaking house music. Old Mutual Music at the Lake, together with East Coast Radio, is proud to present Lady Zamar, Black Motion and Durban-based Colours of Sound.
Sunday the 3rd of November will see 3 energising live performances by 3 proudly South Africa acts, and it’s a show for those who don’t feel like lazing around at home on a Sunday; but would rather grab their friends, their outdoor picnic gear, and their dancing shoes as they get set to party in the park. It’s guaranteed to be an unforgettable afternoon of great musical talent, set in the lush Durban Botanic Gardens.
Dubbed the New Queen of House Music, Lady Zamar is a vibrant and dynamic musician with an angelic voice that just gets people moving. With a number of award-winning albums, there’s no doubt that this talented young musician and her entourage will bring all the glory to the stage. In 2017 she won Song of the Year at the DStv Mzansi Viewer’s Choice Awards for her song Charlotte; and at the 2018 South African Music Awards she won the award for Best Dance Album.
Lady Zamar will be supported by the equally vibrant Black Motion, one of South Africa’s favourite house acts, and a duo who combine cosmopolitan house beats with tribal notes and deep groove sounds to create a uniquely inviting set.
Also new to the Music at the Lake stage will be Durban-based house band: Colours of Sound. The multi-talented duo have been writing, performing and producing music for years, and are rapidly gaining respect on stage with their infectiously vibey live performances; which include instrumentals such as the guitar, piano, saxophone and percussion – making them a musical treat not to be missed.
From the beginning of the series, event sponsors Old Mutual have played a key role in providing a lifestyle experience that ignites passion, enjoyment and relevance. “There is no better way to do that than with the power of the outdoors, community and music combined,” says Old Mutual Sponsorship Manager Bandile Mngoma.
With picture-perfect picnic spots, an opportunity for families and friends to enjoy each other’s company nestled among nature, all the while supporting local music; there’s more to the Music at the Lake series that meets the eye. In addition to the superb experience created on the day, the proceeds from the Music at the Lake concerts are allocated by the Durban Botanic Gardens Trust to projects that assist with the maintenance and sustainability of the Gardens, ensuring it remains a place for all who visit to appreciate and enjoy. Even more reason why you should join Lady Zamar and friends on Sunday the 3rd of November at Durban’s most beautiful and best-kept outdoor event.
