Goema is the traditional minstrel sound of Cape Town, built on talents and times gone by and full of indigenous Cape spirit. Mac Mackenzie is a musical coordinator orchestrating Goema music into its own again. The festival will showcase extracts from Mac’s Goema Symphony work, performed by a quintet.
