Kite Festival Report & Summer Bookings

We had an amazing day on Saturday. All our phones ran flat and got full as there was so much going on, so I am collecting pics from all the parents as well as the festival photos which should be out next week. As they come in I am adding them to this album:
We had an amazing day at the Kite Festival with 70 children participating: 20 traders and 50 performers. Kite fest is always more about the performers and they were really incredible.
We opened with IMBIZO YETHU PRODUCTION, a group from Masiphumulele lead by David Nogaga Jola This was followed by some Hip Hop acts proudly from Ocean View: Diego(doter jubels) 17. Enriky(mc reeky) 13.. (Smurf) 19.. (Mc vraagteken) 16.. Ebrahiem(mc young) 19 & Creche Kinners Next up was the incredible Mazine Wells who always get the crowd dancing, this 12 year old is a spectacular talent. The first set was wrapped up by our brillient musical facilitators Mazula backing up the young Masiphumulele violinist Milisa Ndlebe
The second set was opened by the very professional Ihlumelo lokhanyo lwethu Youth development group from Ukhanyo the light in Khayelitsha. Maxine Wells gave us another superb set followed by Brandon-Holy Gokez – an incredible Ocean View hip hop performer. The Creche Kinners had a fan club by this stage and their 13 year old lead singer blew us away again.
Massive thanks to Cape Town International Kite Festival for giving these youngsters the time on the big coke stage, dreams came true. We could never have done it without the talent and care of Zoe Mazula and Vusa Mazula guiding and managing these young people.
Back in the stunning tent provided for us by Cape Town International Kite Festival we had the Entrepreneur of the Day award won by Caitlyn and Shelby Mostert of “Fait Main” follwed by great fun in an open mic event.
Thank you so much to Jackie & Maxi for supplying the amp and mic, all the paren ts and supporters, Cape Mental Health for hosting us again and all our sponsors. 50 of our participents were sponsored with transport, lunch money and coaching and they all made a day of it. After the festival they all went to the beach for a swim and arranged the taxis home only at 6pm. A full, fun day out with no hiccups and we also secured radio time for some of our performers.
Many many thanks Ingrid Rolles, Rotary Club Cape of Good Hope, Nisan Bloch, Tiara Pathon, Annette le Roux, Shazzi Gunst, Kim Fletcher de Bruin. Thank you to David Nogaga Jola and Donald Vusi Puza for your help and Zolan Dumo without whom I would never cope as well as Litha our favorite taxi man for his great service and value and to everyone who supports these fabulous young folk. It was a challenge to get there, especially as I got stuck in riots in Ocean View and Khayelitsha during preparation and I am always amazed by how these children rise above the challenges. We are looking for anyone able to assist with future events for our performers too. We have a lot of events this summer so see you all there!

We are moving to the back of Rondebosch Park in the deep shade for summer and aiming for picnic vibes. I hope this all makes sense, please book online as its really hard to track otherwise! I had to prebook tables so they are limited, once they are taken we need to bring extra tables etc. I will count up as we go. Many thanks to all of you who have helped out, much appreciated.
With love and thanks
