Live concerts are back! Bassline Live marks its return to live in-person concerts with a three-concert series happening over three Saturdays in May at the Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City. If you have been missing high-quality live music events during the past year, this is a must-visit.

To comply with Covid restrictions and ensure everyone feels safe the capacity is limited to just 250 guests (spread far out across the large theatre), and making this an especially compelling ocassion, the Lyric Theatre boasts some of the best sound quality in the city.

Headlining all three concerts are some of South Africa's most loved young divas, supported by exciting young artists on the rise. An exciting chance to enjoy an evening of live music from some of the most interesting local songbirds.

Note that booking is absolutely essential as seating at the theatre is limited to 250 guests. Book your tickets online here.

Sat May 8 
Ami Faku and Urban Village

A rising local afro-soul sensation, Ami Faku was featured in Spotify's most-streamed South African artists of 2019, with fans falling in love with her deeply personal album Imali, in which she brings forth her personal sentiments on love and emotions. Also performing is Soweto-based indie-folk and funk band Urban Village whose distinctive alternative music fuses traditional and contemporary rural and urban sounds.
 
May 15 
Msaki and Moonga K

Indie-folk singer and guitarist Msaki’s husky and powerful vocals have garnered her comparisons to iconic writers and soul legends such as Tracy Chapman and Joan Armatrading. Her music is a beguiling mix of soulful folk, isiXhosa lyrics and symphonic movements as she spins tales of love, loss, revolution and hope. Also performing is Moonga K, known for his vivid fusion of introspective neo-soul, confessional alt-pop and elements of traditional R&B.

Sat May 22 
Zoë Modiga and Zu

Rounding out the series is the charismatic pianist and singer-songwriter Zoe Modiga. Durban-born Modiga became a household name following her audition on prime-time reality TV singing contest The Voice South Africa, going onto garner critical acclaim for her iconic debut album Yellow the Novel. We've seen Zoë perform live several times and we can vouch for the incredible energy she brings to the stage. Also performing is Soweto-born Afro-soul singer Zu.
