Joining us in studio today is Ghetto Sessions, an initiative that started in 2017 out of a small shop in Khayelitsha.
Siyabonga Mbaba, is the man who started it all with the vision to unite and empower people through music and art. He teamed up with George Kirkinis, growing and expanding throughout the years. Pulling in large mixed demographic crowds to unite Cape Towns music scene. Ghetto sessions started off small with few people coming together hosting meetings once a month in which they would share poetry, art and music. Their aim is to target division that exist in Cape Town, to connect the townships and the cities. They are driven by young people who live in a divided city that is effected by history and still bares the scars. The line up consists of the best musicians in Cape Town. Their song “Ngomgqibelo” speaks about the unspoken detrimental effects of stereotyping that leaves communities disseminated with social ills.
