Reggae concert to condemn violence

Scratch Israel

The Dub Band will stage a reggae concert at Crossby Shelter in A Section, opposite the Khayelitsha traffic department, on Saturday November 30, from 4pm.

The concert, spearheaded by Scratch Israel, is aimed at
adding a voice against xenophobia, gender-based violence and abuse against women and children.

Israel said the concert was a direct outcome of the incidents happening in the community and the country at large.

“Our African brothers have been killed… tortured and brutalised. After a series of killings of women and children abuse the idea of this concert came into existence. Mzantsi reggae artists came up with a mission to give voice against the ills of our society,” he said.

The concert will feature two of Mzantsi reggae artists, Ras Zero from KwaZulu-Natal, who will be backed by Azania Band from Cape Town and Bongo Tee from Limpopo, who will be backed by Dub Band.

Other artists on the line-up include Jah Noah, Jah Kongo, Sister Gina Lion, Black Kalamawi, Black B and Bobo Asha.

Tickets are R80 pre-sold and R100 at the gate. For more information, call 073 217 4089.
