We are privileged to have the fabulous Zoe Mazula of Horizon’s Tale, Mazula and The Farmhouse Rocks to guide our young performers and add her special magic to the day. A real feast of music including classical, blues, rock and jazz is guaranteed to entertain.
Zoë Mazula has been a performer all her life. It started with dancing and acting and continued on to singing and song writing. Zoe studied at Redroofs Theatre School and The Academy in London England. Next to the creative arts, Zoë’s biggest passion is education and she later worked extensively with The Big Foot Theatre Company and Makebelieve Arts in London borough schools to empower teachers to bring creative storytelling and acting techniques into mainstream classrooms as an effecting teaching tool. Zoë has not only experienced the pleasure of the arts first hand through professional working in adverts, theatre and film but she has witness the power of acting with drama therapy and the healing and learning that comes from drama techniques and play. Zoë has continued her creative teaching under the name ‘I Create Me’ and runs after school clubs, teaching workshops and holiday programmes.
Zoë immigrated with her husband Vusa to South Africa in 2004 to open one of Cape Town’s most loved music venues, Zula Sound Bar on Long Street. Zula gave a platform for nine years to the best up and coming and established original music acts of South Africa. For the past two years Vusa and Zoë have gone back to their original love of music and write and perform their songs under the name Mazula with their first album being released this year. They can be seen singing in their function duo called Horizon’s Tale at many different hotels, restaurants and private functions around the mother city and South Africa. You can follow their music on Facebook under the name Mazula and Horizon’s Tale and you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info on the I Create Me programmes.
